thedailypic•Yr8•194/365•2751•The Bridge

I added a new lens to my arsenal today – a 14-24mm wide, as with most of my new equipment over the years , I took it to Choate Park for a test drive. Somewhere in my boxes of photos I have a black & white shot taken at this same location, I used my brand new at the time Pentax K1000, my hand me down tripod, loaded with a roll of tri-x film. It was for a photo class in college, 25 years ago. I took a whole roll in that spot and developed them all by hand. Today, 2 shots and done. So much has changed in so many ways, but the bridge is still the same.

Related, I am having an open house at my studio this Friday night, April 14th, 6:30-9:30pm. Plenty of Medway and non Medway photos on display and for sale. Stop by and check them out if you can, I have some give aways and will be shooting One Bulb Portraits.  Sorry these will not be there, but orders can be taken for any of my photos. Scroll to the bottom for more info.

Another foggy morning, yesterday’s photo I made black and white, this photo… well, this is in “color”.  It is just there were not many colors out this morning.

thedailypic•Yr8•178/365•2735•39° with a Chance of Rain

One of my favorite and most photographed trees this morning in the mist. When I got in my truck to go to work I was actually giddy because I knew in about 6 miles this scene would be there. Sometimes I take these for me.

thedailypic•Yr8•175/365•2732•Dan in Bow Tie

Ok, so I am cheating a bit, this photo was from a few days back, for a rehearsal. Last night was the show, Dan was part of the Spring concert at Medway High School. Chorus, acapella and band performed, Dan was in all but band. Matter of fact, he had a solo in one of the acapella songs – Hooked On A Feeling. You can check out the video to that one and The Wanderer below. Plus some photos from the chorus concert. Great job to all the students, so much musical talent at Medway High. Next week they are off to perform at Disney.

thedailypic•Yr8•147/365•2704•Cut by the Foot

So, I broke a 40 year record and had surgery today, by choice. Well, if choice means – two doctors and my wife told me I had to, never really felt I had a choice. Plantar Fasciitis led me to this, it has been heading that way after about 10 years of annoying me. Countless “cures”, shots, therapy, gizmos, foot straps, bands, and tons of other sh*t you hopefully can buy cheap at my next yard sale that never worked. I have not had surgery since the late 70’s, so I need to publicly apologize to the nursing staff, I will own it, I was a wimp. I can not handle hospitals when I take my wife for her kidney stones, forget about being a patient, but they were all awesome. Doctors, nurses, staff, Milford Regional is the best. Other than the almost passing out incident over the IV, we had fun, laughs, selfies, I was even known as “Tim Rice the Photographer”. Apparently I have photographed a few of them in the past. One of my nurses was a snowman I photographed in the Milford Holiday Parade. She even took me on a field trip so I could see one of my photos that hangs in the hospital’s new wing. As for the Doc in the photo, that is Dr. Lepley from Franklin, the cutter. I highly recommend him and his office for any of your foot needs. Great guy, has helped everyone in my family at one point.

I am now laid up for a bit, not a thing I am used too, nor will I handle it well. I can’t deal with sitting at the beach for a few hours, I am off my feet until at the very least Tuesday, maybe longer and there is no driving for 2 weeks. I discovered FX’s The Americans on Amazon today… 4 in, damn good. Expect some household dailypics for a few days… good thing we are having such a bad stretch of weather making it easy to sit on this couch. 70 degrees in February and I can’t walk.

thedailypic•Yr8•112/365•2669•The Church Window on A Gray Day

This photo is about 2 weeks shy of 4 years old, and has never been seen by anyone but me. I take photos everyday, though I do not share them all. Some are not worth sharing, some just get buried in the pile of too many other photos, some I just take for me. I took it while I was with a friend who was touring the old Fire House in Medway when it was for sale. They did not purchase the property, and I kind of forgot about the photo. I knew at the time it would not be posted for I had thought it would make a nice gift had they purchased the house, but it was not meant to be.

At the start of the year I began a process of archiving files and kind of inventorying what I have. There it was, wanting to be seen again buried in a folder from February 2013. There is enough noise today that does not need me adding to it. No one needs a photo of my Trump figure (just wait, it will appear) or some other photo attempt to commemorate the day, I figured why not dig deep and post the “oldest dailypic” I have ever posted. The Church Window on a Gray Day. Trust me, 98% of my photos are taken and posted within the same day, it is not often I cheat, and when I do I usually rat myself out. They are my rules and I really feel guilty breaking them, but… well, they are my rules, so if I don’t break them, who will?
