WARREN, CONNECTICUT – This is the first anniversary of my One Photo Every Day Blog. We’re in Connecticut (without electricity) and the fall foliage is if anything better than ever, so my photography this weekend is fixated on it. Here’s foliage in early morning light. Three frames stitched, taken with my Leica M9 and a 90 mm Elmarit lens.

I’ve decided from this point on to experiment with putting in links to last year’s post from the same date:
On this date one year ago: October 16, 2009

My first post after a frustrating month sorting out blog technology was an image of the Jean DeBuffet sculpture at One Chase Manhattan Plaza.

Here are a couple of more from October 16, 2010 – since it’s my anniversary I’m giving myself a break from the editorial chore of sorting pictures down to one. We ran into an old friend, Lane Smith, at a book signing for his book, It’s a Book, at the Hickory Stick Bookstore in Washington, Connecticut Here are couple of links of interest: Lane’s video version of the It’s a Book, which ironically went viral. And Hickory Stick Bookshop. Shot with my Leica M9 and a 1954 50mm Dual Range Summicron.

Finally, more foliage. Leica M9 plus 35mm Summicron v. IV. Two frames stitched.

BRIDGEWATER CONNECTICUT – We played hooky on Columbus Day. This was a perfect Autumn day for our last boat ride of the season. We put our 1954 Chris Craft on Lake Lillinonah and spent the day cruising, picnicking and enjoying the fall colors. This from the boat.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Well here’s where thing get tough from an editing point of view. I got out at sunrise on this sensational day. The foliage is sensational in the morning light – so I’m posting three images for today.

Here’s a local farm stand. Taken with my Leica M9 and a 28mm summicron lens. Two frames stitched in PTgui.

WARREN CONNECTICUT – Well autumn appears to be here – early this year – probably because it’s been extremely dry for the last six weeks (although it pouring as I write this). Here I’ve stitched six frames as a panorama. i’ll use this as a banner for the Daily Photo Blog if I ever get tired of the wildebeests and zebras. Taken with my Leica M9 and a 90 mm Elmarit lens.

WARREN, CONNECTICUT – At last a crisp, clear late fall day.  This is the sort of day that gives seasonal weather changes a good reputation.  After struggling against against murky light for most of the week.  I spent the afternoon in Litchfield having lunch and photographing the town.  Tomorrow is supposed to be clear so I’ll come back for sunrise.  Today’s posting is from a walk in the woods a little latter in the day.
