365 Project - Day 212 - "Inspiration"



July 31, 2011 - "Inspiration"

Today I sat for a while at the St. Patrick's Old Cathedral in the Little Italy neighborhood of Manhattan...

... looking for inspiration.

And I found it...

... the clear "Cross of Inspiration"... tucked in a corner, almost easy to miss.

365 Project - Day 207 - "Wired"



July 26, 2011 - "Wired"

Well, I was sitting on my couch watching the Juventus vs Club América game... but it started pouring in NY, and the game was put on hold...

... so I decided it was time to search for my photo for the day.

And there it was... in a bundle of wires.

Who knew!?!

365 Project - Day 206 - "Vinyl"



July 25, 2011 - "Vinyl"

Just a small part of my very eclectic collection of vinyl.

Some I've had "forever".

Some are recent editions.

Some have seen more years than I have.

Some are brand-spankin'-new releases.

ALL are wonderful!

365 Project - Day 203 - "Heat-Wave"



July 22, 2011 - "Heat-Wave"

It's hot. Really, REALLY hot.

Temps near 100˚ here in Danbury today... and it "feels" even higher, according to the weatherman.

Tomorrow is supposed to be even hotter.

And to think... just a week ago people around here were complaining about how "this hasn't been much of a summer so far"!

Are we EVER happy with the weather?

I guess not!

July 20, 2011 - "Plastic Eye"

I've got myself buried behind the TV... in a tangle of wires... hooking up a Blu-Ray theater system... a plastic flashlight my only friend.

So I turn my camera on it... and capture the moment.

Good times.

Good times.

365 Project - Day 198 - "Napkin"



July 17, 2011 - "Napkin"

I'm bored... so here I am, playing with a blue paper napkin left-over from my daughter's birthday party.

The napkin and my camera seem to play around for a while... before I use said napkin to dry the tears I have as a result of the U.S. losing the FIFA Womens World Cup today.

Oh well... such is life!

July 16, 2011 - "Tazze"

Standing in the kitchen, looking for a photo.

Nothing.

Nothing.

Nothing.

And there it is.

365 Project - Day 195 - "Derby Glasses"



July 14, 2011 - "Derby Glasses"

Not feeling much like photographing today... but I've got to get an image in.

Grab the camera... turn and look at the table beside me... and snap a shot of what's there.

What's there?

Several glasses from my collection of Kentucky Derby Mint Julep Glasses. These three are from 1979, 1972 and 1977 (left-to-right, that is).

And that's that.

365 Project - Day 192 - "Sleepy Blooms"



July 11, 2011 - "Sleepy Blooms"

I'm sleepy today.

Very... VERY sleepy.

Can't seem to keep my eyes open. Every time I try, the lids just slowly slide closed again... blurring my vision of the world before completely blocking it out.

Time for sleep. Much, MUCH sleep.

July 10, 2011 - "Ziggy Kisses"

Sitting on the couch... relaxating.

Ziggy decides to jump onto my lap for some quick kisses and face-nudging.

I snap a few quick shots... before he notices the camera, and bolts away.

All is calm again.

365 Project - Day 190 - "New Haven Shadows"



July 09, 2011 - "New Haven Shadows"

A wonderful day!

A quick trip to the library before heading down to New Haven for the day.

An afternoon spent dreaming and munching at IKEA.

Big plans made.

Renovations... and more new comfort to come.

A meal at Louis' Lunch (Est. 1895) - for the SINGLE BEST BURGER I'VE EVER HAD!!! (But then again, this is THE birthplace of the hamburger... so it wasn't a surprise!)

A bit of a wander around New Haven...

Cutler's Record Shop...

Urban Outfitters...

Some shoe shopping...

A quick capture of shadows on the sidewalk...

Then we head home...

... with a quick pause for some ice cream at Field View Farm (Est. 1639).

Return home... rest... watch TV... relax.

A wonderful day!

Life IS Good!

The "new" is making its way in.

New (massive) TV...

New TV stand...

And, of course... new couches and throw-pillows.

All of this equalling "new comfort".

Life is good!

An abstract mess.

That's all I see today.
