Day 168 (16 June 2012) Beach and Clouds

Today I was in Westerly, RI, for a pancake breakfast fundraiser, and decided to take the LONG way home, including a stop at the shore and a few other places along the way.  I had lots of time and my camera 🙂

Turns out that the beaches are so popular that they charge for parking, so I drove to a rocky portion of the shore where there was limited free parking (gotta save my money for more camera goodies, right? 🙂 ).  The painter below allowed me to take a couple photos of him.  However, I can’t decide which of the three images from the photo I like better.  I’m leaning towards the first one.  Which is your favorite?

Day 31 (31 Jan 2012) Farmington River

Today marks 1 month down!  No days missed 🙂  But starting next month, I’ll actually have to remember what number I’m on instead of just looking at the date!

On my way home from work I decided to stop at a little park next to the Farmington River near southern Windsor, CT.  I thought it would look cool to do a longer exposure of the river, like I’ve done with waterfalls, just to see what happened.  I like how the first one almost looks like it was painted; I may print a large size of it for my wall 🙂
