WARREN CONNECTICUT – Another day of droning – this time on Lake Waragaug, and trying a four frame stitch, which worked fine. not a very exciting image. I’ll be working with stitches with this thing to build up larger files than the native 12 meg files from the camera.
Day 2693 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day three years ago (day day 1,597): Lever House
WARREN CONNECTICUT – I drove up here today to pick up the dogs (they stayed here while we were in Cartagena) and to meet with contractors, wrapping up the building project that we started last summer.We should be finished by the end of February. I got the drone out in good light at the top of Tanner Hill Road here.
Day 2,664 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – Another . . . drone day. I got up with the dun this morning and got lucky with some good grazing light. I have’t really edited these as I’m still sorting out what I like and don’t like. Later in the day we visited a friend in upstate New York who is renovating a major inn named Troutbeck.
Day 2,650 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day six years ago (day 459): winter landscape.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – More work with the drone. I used it today to get angles other than straight down – capturing ordinary images that would have otherwise required a tall ladder or a cherry picker. I’m experimenting with stitches as well.
Day 2,649 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day 7 years ago day 92 of 1 photo a day the rest of my life: Wedding dress.
WARREN CONNECTICUT – A couple of good developments today. First, we’ve actually finished three rooms in the renovation and expansion project that we started here late last summer – see a finished bedroom below.
Second, my drone arrived. I spent a couple of hours learning how to turn it on and take off and land, and finally to get it airborne and navigated around here. On the first major outing I ran it into some tree branches – it’s good at avoiding obstacles but not small wires and branches – without major damage. I found out why the manufacturer includes a couple of extra sets of rotor blades. You’re going to see a lot of shots from high angles on weekends as I master it. The challenge of course is taking photographs that have interest beyond their point of view.
So here you go:
Day 2648 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day seven years ago (day 91): look up on Sixth Avenue.
