WARREN CONNECTICUT – A drone shot of fall foliage (in black and white) and ground level foliage with my Leica Monochrom. I didn’t shoot film today because my darkroom stuff is in New York and I need to do same day developing if I’m going to keep up with my photo a day project.
Day 2,941 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I shot around the house today looking for easy subjects for tomorrow, when I’m shooting . . . FILM! I’ve purchased a Leica M3 film body from 1954, the year of this camera’s introduction. It’s in perfect condition cosmetically. I plan on running a few rolls of film through it before sending it off to Don Goldberg for an overhaul – the right repairman can typically put these cameras into like-new operating condition. So watch this space tomorrow.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – We used to call unseasonably warm periods in the early Fall “Indian Summer” – I’m not certain what we call them now but we’re having one. This was an opportunity to shoot truly pedestrian scenes in lovely light. Also . . . our six-year-old orchard is finally bearing more apples than we can possibly eat. Images shot with my Leica Monochrom and a 50mm Summicron V.IV lens.

On this day six years ago (day 708): Spin in Shanghai.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – This is one of the first time’s that I’ve actually felt good about images from the Northeastern deciduous forrest. I’ve been struggle with this landscape for a while – it requires a completely different approach than the Western landscape that I grew up in. Today I got close and embraced details that convey a sense of mass and foreboding, and used selective focus. I’m also using on camera fill flash. You’ll see more like these.
And just to inject some levity, a color image!
