WARREN CONNECTICUT – Not a very productive day on the photo front. I’m not sure why this happens, but it seems to be hard to sustain interesting work with complete consistency on a day in and day out basis. Today I put my 90mm Elmarit on my Leica Monochrom and carried it through my day.
It may be that I just don’t resonate with this focal length. I tend to do best shooting wide. Anyway, I settled for some birches:
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Easter. At long last, a good picture. From a technical standpoint I’ve been operating with two left feet this weekend (really stagnating), probably because I’m the cook in the household and I’ve been distracted making sous vide brisket for the Novogrods’ Seder and smoked, roast leg of lamb for Easter dinner today. But enough whining and excuses. There was a moment this morning, right after the rising sun broke out above a low rim of clouds, when the birches looked positively radioactive. Really. Amazing. It didn’t matter where I stood or what I shot. This was done with my Sony Nex-7 and Leica 50mm Summilux lens.
On this day one year ago: In the Conservatory Garden. Pictures from gardens in the Spring usually suck. At least mine do. That wasn’t the case last year – I managers a nuanced effort on a rainy day. This shows the Leica 24mm Summilux at its best. Maybe there’s an April 8 phenomenon.
