044/366: Pot of Gold

One side effect of this photo-a-day business that I probably should've anticipated is that I spend a lot of time now looking at stuff and saying "That's make a good photo..." Which is annoying when I'm out and don't have the camera with me, so I've started throwing it in the car when I go out to run errands.

This paid off this morning, when I took The Pip to day care, and was greeted by this:

Rainbow over the entrance to the JCC this morning. Rainbow over the entrance to the JCC this morning.

I spent a while today shooting video of myself on the back porch. Which technically qualifies for the photo-a-day project, because I used the video feature of my new camera. So, here's a still frame. Still frame from video shot for a physics thing. What am I doing here, and why? You'll have to…
Over the last few years, I've developed a routine of working at Starbucks in the early morning, between the bus picking SteelyKid up (at 7:30-ish, ugh) and when I need to be on campus. Now that I'm on sabbatical and don't need to go to campus every day, I'm still going to Starbucks, just extending…
It's been over a month since I did a photo-a-day post, largely because I haven't been taking many pictures for a variety of reasons. I do still mean to get a year's worth of good photos done, but the "daily" part has completely disintegrated at this point. As a way of getting somewhat back on…
