"365 Project"/New York Times' "Moment In Time" Project - Day 122 - "A Moment of Calm"

May 02, 2010 - "A Moment of Calm"

This photo is my entry for the "Moment in Time" photo project being hosted by The New York Times.

Today at 15:00 U.T.C (which was 11:00 AM E.S.T. in the United States) photographers all around the world were taking a photo as a shared project to capture a universal "Moment in Time" for a photo mosaic.

For me, I happened to be in the Holiday Diner here in Danbury... having breakfast with my wife and my son. We arrived at the diner around 10:30 or so... and the place was absolutely packed. By the time "The Moment" came around, however - the rush seemed to be over... and most of the tables were empty of people and being cleaned by the waitstaff. There was a brief moment of calm before the next rush started around 11:30.

I managed to snap around two dozen photos in the 60-second period that was "The Moment"... but this was by far my favorite... and the one that seemed to capture the scene the best.

The photo has already been submitted... and now the day can continue.

Life is good!
