#365Project | 027/365 | Hopewell Junction, NY

One of the byproducts of this daily photo project has been a sense that a theme is beginning to develop on its own. The circumstance of work hours, winter daylight and an hour commute each way to work and home, creates a sort of predefined environmental framing. I am working within the conditions now, but am looking forward to spring and the extended daylight.

Taken on the way home from work last week at the service station near the highway that has the fresh buttered rolls in the morning, but also has the more expensive gas. You really cannot win. Also, I like when people see you with a camera in your hand raised to your eye and ask 'hey, what are you doing?' I'm stealing your soul pal... if you must know.

When does a perceptual schematic become consciousness ?

I am a few days behind on posting here on G+, although the photos are from their respective days. I do find it much easier to stay current on Instagram without the added function of albums, collections and an ever changing UI. Personally, the current iteration of Google+ leaves a lot to be desired... the image picker feels like a huge step backwards, namely if the image you are sharing is not from recent auto-backup. Grumblings aside, I prefer the Google+ desktop experience of composing and viewing images full screen.

I spotted this scene coming home from work last week behind a shopping plaza.

#365Project | 024/365

I miss living in a city at times... a passing car is now a thing.
Photo taken in front of my home on January, 24th after snow and ice forced school closings in our Town. Motivation was pretty low for venturing out too far, and this coupled with short daylight hours, has been a cause of frustration in trying to keep finding something interesting to photograph.

Reminding myself that photos will not come knocking on the door, but they must be made.

#365Project | 022/365 | Wappingers Falls, NY

Exploring the neighboring towns in Dutchess County, NY. One of the more irksome things about not being in a city (besides having a walk-score of '0') is that all travel is by car, and mostly by route instead of local streets. This means the speed limit, instead of 30 mph, is closer to 45-50 mph. While the speed difference is not much, it does result in a general haste or feeling of being rushed everywhere I drive to/from. There are few shoulders on the road, and hardly any street parking. I can see interesting views from the car, but often cannot stop because of the line of cars only a few car lengths behind me. Ugh.

Fortunately on this route in Wappingers Falls, NY, the traffic was lighter than normal allowing me to find an area to pull over, and snap a few pictures. Perhaps because of it was nearing evening on a Sunday? Not sure, but I'm going to try doing some scouting via car and Google maps, then returning to take photos.

I'm about a day behind in posting for the project, but still making sure photos are from the day. This country store was spotted on short day-trip to Kingston in Ulster County, New York.
