Ode to Vivian – Snapshot of the Day, No. 167

I couldn’t resist shooting this. It’s a direct copy of a photo by my new favorite photographer, Vivian Maier. But since I couldn’t find anything else, I decided to use it as a tribute to her. Be sure to check out the trailer of an upcoming documentary on her life. There is also a newContinue reading “Ode to Vivian – Snapshot of the Day, No. 167”

East 17th Street – Snapshot of the Day, No. 80

I saw this mural today and decided to pull over. When I got out, I was hoping someone would come by – so I looked to my right; and by golly, here came a man walking a bicycle! Good luck for me! This was on East 17th Street in the Southside. Right off of MainContinue reading “East 17th Street – Snapshot of the Day, No. 80”

Sugar’s – Snapshot of the Day, No. 77

I saw this girl sweeping the entrance to Sugar’s Ribs today and instantly knew she’d be my Snapshot of the Day. But I did not want her to go back inside before I got her photo, so I quickly did a meter reading for the shade and then lifted my camera and shot. I hadContinue reading “Sugar’s – Snapshot of the Day, No. 77”

Buehler’s Market – Snapshot of the Day, No. 75

This is Buehler’s Food Market on Market Street downtown. Close to Panera and Taco Mac. I LOVE going in here because it reminds me of shopping with my mother at the M&J when I was a kid. It even has that same grocery store smell you just don’t get with modern stores today. It hasContinue reading “Buehler’s Market – Snapshot of the Day, No. 75”

Office Supplies – Snapshot of the Day, No. 73

Cooper’s Office Supply on Cherry Street had some great reflections in their widows today. So! I stood there – focused and ready for someone to walk by. And I waited. So I strolled out onto the sidewalk and noticed no one in sight. I looked for another photo of the day opportunity when this guyContinue reading “Office Supplies – Snapshot of the Day, No. 73”

Elemental Employees – Snapshot of the Day, No. 55

I left work to run an errand today and stumbled across a really cool restaurant called Elemental.¬†As I was walking by, I noticed while looking through the window that it had lots of really cool design elements inside. I had originally thought it was a store and coffee house; but as I walked in, theContinue reading “Elemental Employees – Snapshot of the Day, No. 55”

Railroad Bridge – Snapshot of the Day, No. 49

At the risk of getting hit by a car, I decided to pull over to shoot a photo of this bridge. Lots of people pull off the road here to fish, so I thought I’d be relatively safe – sort of. I am usually the one who shakes my head whenever I drive by allContinue reading “Railroad Bridge – Snapshot of the Day, No. 49”

Discarded Newspapers – Snapshot of the Day, no. 45

It was really windy this morning. So windy in fact, most of our papers from the dumpster blew out and into the street for a couple of blocks. It looked good, too. Trash everywhere. Great. But it also seemed to symbolize the newspaper industry’s demise in general. At least in print form. Gone with theContinue reading “Discarded Newspapers – Snapshot of the Day, no. 45”

Coming to Work – Snapshot No. 35

As usual, I only had a few minutes today to find my one “snapshot of the day.” And because my rule is I only get one shot at whatever I decide to take a photo of, it makes my few minutes seem even shorter. However, the goal of this project is to make me lessContinue reading “Coming to Work – Snapshot No. 35”
