It was awfully pretty — and awfully cold — this morning before skiing.

Epidemic

Check out the dates.  The old man (on the left), passed at age 64 on September 21, 1805.  But poor Allen, age 26, had already passed on September 10th.  Methinks there was something nasty being passed around on that Connecticut hilltop, oh, round about the time Lewis and Clark were just getting to the Oregon border…

Scarecrow 4

So it isn’t a pumpkin head on fire, as that first Sonic Youth album cover showed it.  We still found this scarecrow as scary as anything out of True Detective, albeit found on the top of Sharon Mountain in Connecticut, not the Louisiana bayou.  Leica M, 50mm APO-Summicron-Asph.

Color Wins, Sometimes

We had great fun out West principally using the Leica Monochrom (typ-246) to capture images of Jackson Hole in black and white.  Every once in a while, though, a natural experiment takes place where we come across an image we took in color that is virtually the same as what was captured in black and white.  Monochrome has stopping power, timelessness.  Ah, but sometimes color nails it.  You be the judge.

That’s the way our M-240 caught the sunset underneath the Sleeping Indian, with the 75mm APO-Summicron-Asph. And this is the way our Monochrom caught it with the 50mm APO.

We thought the black and white image was nice enough to print.  But we now believe color wins here, hands down.  Yes, you do not need a monochrome-only camera to make such experiments, but as readers of Tulip Frenzy know, we like the idea of deliberately going out to take monochrome-only images.  This time, though, we’re glad we brought along the M.
