CARTAGENA COLOMBIA – I spent the day exploring the beach here, and the modern side of the town.

Day 2662 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life. A palindrome! The next one is 110 days from now.

On this day two years ago (day 1,150): More trees in fog. I’ve done a fair number of these. A thread? A nuisance?

TOBAGO CAYS – We chartered a fast boat for the the day to take us down to Tobago Cays where we snorkeled and had a picnic lunch. The trip back and forth was exceptionally rough. Altogether a fund day. Images with my Leica S.

WAAREN CONNECTICUT – We had some fun today. We were approached by a film production company called Lost Highway Films. Lost Highway is producing a television commercial for State of Connecticut tourism folks. They came across our new old boat (the 1952 Chris Craft) on this website. After some negotiation on fees, insurance and so on we agreed that they could film the boat in action in a segment of the commercial that they were shooting on Lake Waramaug. Today was the day. We had a stressful hour dealing with a dead battery but finally got things running.

I was surprised at the number of people involved. There must have been sixty or seventy in total. So the “talent” (five actors) got costumed up in into the boat, and we spent four hours running around the lake being filmed from a pontoon boat. A lot of fun. I’ll post a link when the commercial is finished, probably around the end of September.

Anyway, here are some images, all taken with my Leica M9 and Noctilux.

The production company had a still photographer on the team. He had set up a Profoto with a soft box which I borrowed (along with some off duty talent) for this.
