KENT and WARREN CONNECTICUT – I’m continuing to experiment with my newly-repaired Leica f.95 Noctilux, shooting landscape and still life wide open, with a neutral density filter if necessary. The results are more dreamy than the hart-edged look that I’ve been cultivating for a lifetime, and thus a really good exercise for me. I’ve also included an image of Baby Victoria, our fabulous 12-month old granddaughter.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – We got a late start driving up here today and ran into endless traffic – actually a bit unusual. I was in no mood for photography but pretty good late afternoon light gave me an opportunity to capture an image.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – This has turned out to be two days of perfect late Autumn weather. The light is enveloping and glorious. I shot very wide (with my 16mm Zeiss lens); I’ve found that very wide lenses sometimes do a good job of conveying a sense of the quality of light.

Day 1,837 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

NEW YORK NEW YORK – A quick note on equipment. Most of my work here is done with a Leica Monochrom, a classic Leica rangefinder camera that takes only black and white images. The lack of color information means that it produces roughly twice the resolution of normal digital camera – giving lovely, medium format film-like images. I shoot wide but most often keep a standard 50mm lens on the camera. I get wide by shooting multiple overlapping images and “stitching” them on a computer. Result is very large files that can be printed large. The large files and intense detail invest mundane subjects with an importance that is impossible to achieve with smaller files.

Today’s images is three frames stitched. I’ve taught myself how to stitch reliably without using a tripod.

Day 1,817 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Here I am once again shooting fall color in black and white. I’ve gotten a bit behind in posting – as I write this I’m actually in Western Virginia with very poor internet access – I’ll catch up when I get back to NY.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – More work with long lenses today. This time the Leica APO-Telyt M 135mm. This lens really does have a lovely signature. Both images today are two frames stitched.
