    Audio Book

    I really wanted to do something photography related as I am seemingly obsessed with the subject; but, the assignment here was meant to show us something about each other that we didn't necessarily know. So I chose to do something based on a 'hobby' of sorts that I enjoy a lot.

    I have a reasonably long commute, approximately 1 and 1/2 hours a day between the trip to work and the trip home. I find the chitter chatter on the radio occasionally interrupted by songs a bit annoying so I skip it.

    I have never been a huge reader; but I have found this commute to be a perfect time to 'read'. In the past 5 or 6 years I have accumulated over 100 audible audio books and have really enjoyed the break from the radio. If you haven't tried audio books, and you have a time when you can't read but listening would work for you give it a try.

    See it large on my blog.

    -- I finally got a proper macro lens :) but for the life of me couldn't think of a way to express this concept in a true macro form.... perhaps next week I will be able to make a true macro using the themes concept --

      I'm a huge proponent of audiobooks as well. However, when I tell people I'm "reading" a particular book, they give me this look like I'm cheating or something!

      Anyhow, nice MM!

      Audio books are great, especially when stuck in traffic. Lessons the frustration knowing you are getting something else accomplished. Great storytelling layout to this, I see you are putting the 100 to good use.

      Seen in my contacts' photos. (?)

      Nicely done! My sister is a huge fan of audio books. She lives in DC area and spends a lot of time stuck in traffic. I don't have long enough commute...

      I tried reading during my commute, but I kept drifting out of my lane!

      The black and purple really make this shot, not to mention the soft brush of light across the headphone. Well done!
