WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’ve got a jam-packed weekend preparing for a jam-packed week next week )none of this having to do with my photo project), so I had fairly limited time here to advance my visual interests. Scrounging around the house I came up with a surprisingly strong image of a piece of pottery.
Day 3424 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this date two years ago (day 2695 of one photo every day): Times Square at night.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – Another day around home. Based on some critical feedback from folks who are following me I’ve decided that my ocaisional close-ups of objects around home are a fruitful thread for further exploration.
Day 3303 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WAKRREN CONNECTICUT – The Peonies are in full bloom here making this a great day in the garden and a great day for cut flowers, but a poor (actually boring) day for imaging. Shooting with my Sony A7Riii and Sony 90mm macro lens. These are actually dried roses, not peonies.
Day 3160 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this date three years ago (day 2064 of one photo every day): Big city – three frames stitched.
NEW YORK NEW YORK – I bought a 1948 Kodak 35 camera on eBay last week It arrived yesterday so yesterday I cleaned a half century of grime off of it and shot a test roll out my window and around the house. Shutter speeds appear to be ok. The rangefinder is an unusable kludge. There’s no meter. This model was replaced in the Kodak line-up by the well-thought-of Retina line around 1950 or so.
I bought this camera because my mother had one and it was the camera that I used through high school and college. Here’s an image from 1965 – as you will see nothing is in focus, which is typical of this camera.
Finding this camera on eBay was a Rosebud moment for me. I won’t use it much but it’s nice to have around. Here’s what it looks like, shot with my iPhone. I’m busy with Thanksgiving prep today so Ive taken exactly one image. Most days I have six or eight ideas.
Day 2,959 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
