WARREN, CONNECTICUT – We’re suffering under a major Nor’easter. Something like four inches of rain over twenty-four hours and high winds. Winter gives up begrudgingly here. This is the beginning of the mud season.
NEW MILFORD, CONNECTICUT – I visited a terrific craftsman’s workshop today – a man named Roger Standt who specializes in restoring wooden Chris Craft boats. This is the inside of his shop. I was there looking at a 1954 Chris Craft that I’m buying with a friend. I’ve attached a picture as a comment.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Most Fridays I have lunch with my son Alexander, usually at Sidecar, upstairs from PJ Clarke’s. Today I was carrying a camera.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – This from an errand to Jean Silversmith, a shop on West 45th Street that has and fixes anything in the way of silver service that you can image.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – A quiet day at home catching up on emails and work. This is a frame from a failed technical experiment.
NEW YORK, NEW YORK – Back home I took a walk in Times Square at sunset. Times Square has lost its scruffy, sleazy vibe. It’s now more like a cross between a Disney attraction and a corporate logo theme park.
PALM SPRINGS, CALIFORNIA – A thoroughly bad day for landscape photography. Up at 5:00 AM to drive to Palm Springs to catch an 8:00 flight to New York. All air traffic had ground to a halt because of the previous days bad weather and a heavy ground fog. Almost four hours of delay. We finally arrived in New York in the dark.
Here’s our departure gate in Palm Springs, waiting for an airplane.
