At the Car Wash!
I left work too late to take the picture I had planned on for today which was my recycling bin at the curb since it's recycling day. I could have taken it before work, but as usual, I was running out the door to make my meeting on time this morning, so it just didn't happen. There will be other recycling days...
But that left me without a photo and once again unsure of what to do since I prefer taking daytime pictures because it's my comfort zone. I'd love to take more night pictures, especially of the moon, but it's harder for me and I really need a much better telephoto lens for that. I tried to improvise a tripod once, but it wasn't quite right without the lens. I do finally have a tripod thanks to my mom, but I haven't really played around with it much.
Anyway, as I was driving home from Goodwill (where I was shopping for books), I saw this sign and knew this was my photo for the day. It took some maneuvering because of course I was in the wrong lane to pull over, but I got the shot in the end. I'm becoming better at night shots and better with my digital point and shoot camera which is great. This project is really paying off!
