WARREN CONNECTICUT – Back to shooting with my Leica Monochrom and brilliant 24mm Summilux lens. I’m running side-by-side tests of this camera and my Sony A7riii, focusing on usability and actual results in practice, as opposed to brick walls. This is in our garden in Connecticut – it was a barren, thawing wasteland a month ago.
Day 3138 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day 2042 of one photo every day): Sinister
MANHATTAN – Here we are at home with this super wide 12-24mm Sony lens, shooting at 12mm. Controlling these very wide lenses is actually a bear: the slighted tilt or non orthogonal positioning results in incurably weird distortion. You will see below that the lens a perfectly rectilinear, probably as a result of profile corrections automatically applied in Lightroom.
Day 3131 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life. A repeating number.
On this date five years ago (day 1305 of one photo every day): Home sweet home
WARREN CONNECTICUT – There has been a long hiatus since my last post. The hard drives with my photo work were stored in boxes for a period when our New York apartment was being painted. Then my website was down for a week for reasons that I’ve finally sorted out with my hosting service. So I’m a month behind in posting, but I have actually kept up on taking at least one image every day, so I’ll be sprinting to catch up on postings. Today’s image reflects the grim fact that spring arrives late in Litchfield County, Connecticut.
Day 3074 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
MANHATTAN NEW YORK – The fixtures in out bathrooms here were about 20 years old. In the guest bathroom the stem broke off on the hot water tap. The German manufacturers no longer exists so repairs ar impossible. In the master bath shower the temperature control valve was stuck on too hot. So we had to tear both bathrooms apart to replace the fixtures. Not pretty.
Day 3061 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
