THE BRONX NEW YORK and NEW MILFORD CONNECTICUT – I drove up to Warren today to drop off our dogs (since Maria and I will be traveling in the next week), stopping in The Bronx to catch a warehouse and in New Milford to catch some flags. I’m shooting film today in my Leica M7 and medium format Mamiya 7 II – in both cases I’m shooting Ilford PanF Plus. Developing and scanning add several hours per roll to my workflow, but well worth it when I have time.
Day 2,943 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day last year (day 2,578): Strange stuff in a barn. Back to digital here – shot with my Sony A7rii and converted to black and white.
NEW YORK NEW YORK and NEW MILFORD CONNECTICUT – On Park Avenue today I had a slightly melancholy moment: our adult son, Alexander, went to pre-school at the Park Avenue Christian Church Day School. The parish house where the pre-school was housed has been demolished and is now a building site (the first photograph below), no doubt laid low by declining church attendance.
The second photograph is of a ziggurat in New Milford known as the J. Pol memorial. Here’s a link to my 2009 post about it, which very briefly tells his story: J. Pol Memorial
Day 2374 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
NEW MILFORD CONNECTICUT – I usually dis this town but today I visited a new, very good-looking diner in a strip mall here. The food is anatomically correct diner food – it is what it looks like. Kind of fun. The bulldozer and steam was just across the road. I’m getting my mojo back after a dull week in New York.
Day 1,836 of one picture every day for the rest of my life.
NEW MILFORD CONNECTICUT – I’ve ragged on in the past about what a crap town this is. (For the uninitiated “crap town” is actually a term of art. Follow this link: crap towns.) I decided this Memorial Day to give the town a break and followed a road sign that said “9/11 Memorial”. It led me to a parking lot behind the train station where I found this. Captured with my Leica M9 and Dual Range Summicron, two frames stitched.
