That’s it! A whole year, in photos.
One week left. I’m determined to not miss any of these final days now that it’s just one week left. As I get closer to the end of things, my focus often peters out, so now’s an excellent time to challenge that.
Two more weeks. There’s Christmas decorations everywhere. The weather is frighteningly warm. And I’m exhausted from the early sunset. What a weird time of year. Continue reading 365 Photos – 50/52
So many pictures this week, and so many days missed! WordCamp US happened this past weekend, which means everything was a whirlwind. Continue reading 365 Photos – 48-49/52 (NY and Philly Style)
I’ve always wanted to do a photo series of bodegas in the early morning, or any shop before it’s open. Maybe it’s having worked in retail and the food industry, but there’s something about those really early hours when you’re just setting up shop that seem more human.

Yes, finally! I took out my DSLR once more and took actual pictures this week. With the changing leaves, the colors have been gorgeous and I’m a little bit obsessed with the reds and oranges all over New Jersey right now. Continue reading 365 Photos – 44/52
Change is the genius of the city, what has always made New York what it is. But the whiplash rezoning of more than 40 percent of the five boroughs during Bloomberg’s tenure has produced a generational-based moral crisis. Longtime residents no longer feel the joy of the ever-altering landscape, the rapid clip of cosmopolitan turnover that creates continuity.
I’m doing that thing I do since I’m getting closer to finishing my photo a day project, which is not doing it. I get so close to the end and then start to lose interest, so I keep missing days here and there. I refuse to stop though! Continue reading 365 Photos – 43/52
I woke up early this morning to walk the dog and pack. My only fear or phobia is natural disaster, like flooding or tsunamis. These are, I’d argue, pretty useful instinctual fears, but any mention of a hurricane and references to Hurricane Sandy set off all my alarms. So I packed up a bunch of stuff so I can head out later today and hopefully feel a little more secure.
I need to reevaluate always wanting to live on the coast, I think. Continue reading 365 Photos – 39/52
I know I’m obsessed with sunflowers, but I’m a little bit in love with this old man sunflower I found in Belmar, NJ on Saturday. I was walking to my car when I passed it and needed to stop to grab a picture. There’s something so frail and delicate about a dying sunflower.
I took so many pictures this week, and I know I’ll be taking even more next week because I leave for Brazil tomorrow. In one week, it’ll be my birthday, which I keep forgetting and I’m also oddly excited about. I usually go to a pizza place on my birthday, but this year I had originally made plans to go to Paris, since I’d celebrated my 18th there. (I’m turning 28, so exactly 10 years.)
