Un-restored Area of Grand Central Ceiling - January 2008

Sculpture- Chatham beach (Cape Code MA) - ~40 degrees out and slightly windy - great beach for the summer.

Morning after the "snowstorm"

First day back to school after Christmas Vacation

Late night shot of the Encore Building banner on the construction wall.

The new Encore Building in downtown Nashville.

Just yesterday, I was obsessed to find a 366 or 2008 house number to post, but my legs gave up after walking uphill on 2nd Avenue. The 100 address block of 2nd Avenue spans several city blocks, so that nipped the quest in a hurry.

Glastonbury High School bench - blue is the school color - photographed on my morning walk around the school. The bench is by the entrance to the gym and was most likely a gift from a graduating senior class.

Ford Sync Ad at Chicago Airport

Every time I see the Schermerhorn Symphony Center angel, I think of the Danny O'Keefe song, Angel spread your wings, I want to fly away with you...

 

From the classic album "Breezy Stories" from Danny O'Keefe. Amazing that a song from 1974 is still fresh and timeless!

I was home sick as a dawg on tuesday, so I'm playing catchup.

 

If I was still a kid, I would get in my pajamas with the Batman bed sheets. Seeing these sheets in a store front window brought back some memories.

How many people walk through Grand Central each day without noticing this. Are you noticing it now? Take a look at that little speck of black that's in the lower center. It's between the trim and the green ceiling.

 

When Grand Central was renovated they left this one area un-restored so that people could see what it looked like BEFORE the restoration.

 

BTW, most of the discoloration was from cigarette smoke and NOT train steam/smoke.

I've taken up the challenge of a photo a day for 2008, here's hoping it will be a good year!

I got a twofer today; I saw this Johnny Cash wall. There was some heavy duty construction of a high rise behind me, so I couldn't get any good angles of the full wall.

Someone had arranged this rock formation on the bench we passed while hiking - Machimoodus State Park - Moodus , CT.

From no mac to two mac family in a month...

When I was a young kid, being a fireman or policeman was a noble calling. Teachers, doctors and nurses too. To this day, I still believe that.

Ray the tree cutter was explaining to me the art of counting tree rings - this rotting tree is maybe 45 years old - I thought it would make a good backyard card table, but i don't play cards!

Westbrook Technologies - great building

Brrr, it was cold when I took this photo - normally the downtown parking lot is jammed with customers. But since it was so cold - 19 degrees - the lot was empty. Thus I was able to get a closeup.

Jumper from E Norwalk Metro North station - closed down the tracks for about 2 hours (or at least severely slowed them)

I asked my LEGO friends Beetle and Maynard with their girlfriends Sunshine and Faith to check out the new Fingertip Mini Cube Speaker that Thomas at USB Fever sent from overseas...

This morning on the way into work, I had to take a detour to get to my parking space. Out of the corner of eye, I spotted a painted wall that was unusual. Unusual in the sense that it wasn't defaced with spray painted graffiti. So at lunch time, I trudged up to hill 1/2 mile away to see what caught my eye:
