PARIS – I’m traveling this week with one camera (actually two if you count my iPhone): a Leica Q, a fixed lens, full frame Leica with what is currently Leica’s best 28mm lens. I just decided to keep it light this time.
Day 2295 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
PARIS – Last full day here. I walked through the Place de la Concord and across the Seine looking to end up at the Musée d’Orsay, one of my favorite places here. In the end it was too nice a day to spend any portion of it inside so I just walked, and brought home a bunch of touristy-looking images. The hazard of perfect weather.
Day 2,000 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life. That’s right. 2,000 days without a miss. We’re breaking out Champaign here.
MORTEFONTAINE and PARIS FRANCE – We left Mortefontaine for Paris this morning. After doing a bit of work I took the subway to the Bois de Boulogne to visit the new, highly acclaimed Fondation Louis Vuitton, a Frank Gehry structure that will house a collection in formation. The building is a triumph, Bilbao with translucent glass substituted for the titanium. I’ll be back.
Day 1,999 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
PARIS = A very full day starting with the Picasso Museum, lunch at a local French comfort food spot, shopping and then a trip to a friend’s country house for dinner. Images today are from the Picasso Museum taken with my Leica Monochrom.
Day 1,997 of one photograph every day for the rest of my life.
On this day four years ago (day 536): Breuer Chair. The original posting was in muted color.
PARIS – A day of tourism. All shot with my Leica Monochrom and 50mm Summichron Asph. lens. I’ve edited post to add three more images to an already overburdened day, three images taken with my iPhone as Bob and I sampled a very, very good burger at Paris New York, an excellent burger joint (really) in Strasbourg-St Denis (a changing neighborhood in Paris that’s still mid-cycle).
On this day last year: Test. Testing focus on my then “new” Leica M4 (film!):
