This past Monday, I had the pleasure of attending Wine & Canvas night in Carmel with my wife. Their Main Street (downtown) seems to be rapidly urbanizing. For a burb located 15 miles from the regional CBD, they are doing well. This photo is of a statue on the sidewalk on West Main Street. If you are an advocate of things urban, it really is worth your time to go walk through the Main Street area. There was another development coming together that doesn't quite ruin the scale and doesn't look like your typical EIFS clad mess of garbage.
Well, I get to find out first hand just how good South Texas' freeway system is tomorrow morning as I will be hightailing it out of Brownsville headed for Houston. Here is a shot of Alex approaching, taken in Brownsville.
Even though I have become a staunch advocate of public transportation improvements, I still rely daily on my automobile to get to and from work.
Where I work, all the exits between Indianapolis and Ft Wayne have been seeded with Indiana wildflowers. At least, that is what I have been told. Whether or not it was deliberate, they are there, at every exit that I pass and they are in full bloom. I managed to snap a couple photos tonight before I left work to show how beautiful they look. Enjoy my not so transportation related photo post today.
2009 represented a year of extreme growth for me. As a photographer and as a volunteer. I spent a good portion of the year shooting with an Olympus OM1 or Mamiya 645 film camera. It wasnt until August that I was able to finally get my hands on a digital camera. The Nikon D90. It has been QUITE convenient to carry around.
I realize Im a little late to the "2009 in Review"... two months late in fact. However, I wanted to highlight 14 photos that I picked which showed the best that I have had to offer. Again, I give thanks to my wife who has helped me grow in my vision and overall ability to compose a good photo. Keep in mind that all the photos in the 2009 year in review are unedited and either direct off the camera, or straight off of a negative scan.
