Day 191 (9 July 2012) 10 Minute Challenge, II

Today’s shot is a my submission to a “10 Minute Challenge” hosted by SeeingSpotsPhoto and WhereToWillie.  It’s a shot of a small power plant across the Thames River from the CT town of Gales Ferry.

The gist of a 10 minute challenge is to travel for 10 minutes, by any method (car, bike, foot, skis, riding mower, etc), stop, and shoot what you find.  I did this before and it is a great way to shoot when you can’t think of anything (which happens a lot to me on this 366 challenge), or just need to be jolted from the daily grind in your photography.  If you have not done this, I challenge you to do it!  It requires almost no planning, and you can do it in 30 min (or less, if it’s on your way somewhere).  Let me know if you do; I’d like to see what you discover close to where you are 🙂
