    A day in my life

    I had planed to take part in the Day of Viewfinder, however when the day came I forgot. So I decided that I would chronicle a typical work day. The following takes place on Monday June 5th, 2006.

    Bag packed. Yes this as taken at 11pm the night before. Buy my work week starts when I pack. I feel justified.



    My gosh it is early.


    Bleary eyed I manage to start the car. Off to the city.


    Thankfully there is little traffic at this hour. Over the Zakim,


    And into the big dig.


    Sun start to make an appearance as I board my plane.





    I arrive at the job site to find that the customer is not quite ready for me. So I have a few hours to kill while he gets ready. Off for some coffee and breakfast.


    I guess that I should work on a few reports while I wait.





    That gets old quickly so I decide to head out for a walk with my A80. who remember this photo project???


    The clouds break up and the day turns even better.


    It is Pittsburgh after all.


    I had to stop and smell these.


    An interesting pair of leaves.


    The view from a top the hill.


    The architecture on the campus of Carnegie Mellon really grabbed my attention.


    But I did think about a little mischief.


    Focus soon was back on the buildings. The detail was amazing.








    Should I follow this sign?


    The time came that I had to get back to reality. Here is the instrument that I as working on this week. View from the top.


    And down below.


    Finally a chance to rest.

    Re: A day in my life

    Hey there Brian!

    I really enjoyed your day. I'm glad you joined the 24 hour PR thing even though you were a few days late...

    I love the pictures - they say it all. I think my favorite is the one of the alarm clock - very creative. It expresses my "morning" emotions perfectly.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Liz

    Thanks for the hit. That is a fun city to stroll around in. Oh ... I agree w/ the alarm clock shot, I think everyone feels like you do about waking up so early for work.

    thanks liz. For the alarm clock shot, I set the camera on the bed and told myself to grab it and take a picture as soon as i oke up. no time to think. it definatly captured my mood. I also liked how the blurryness in the pictures went way as I woke up.

    I'm a bonified old timer! the cone is a great password. and someone who earned an original PR tee shirt by getting the in Vision Gallery own the key to the club.

    I still remember the first photo that I posted. it was a shot of an old covered bridge in Indiana while I was a newbie-lurker on MTBR and wandered over to PR. "GB" had kind word of incouragement and started the ball rolling.
