So that was close.
For three years now, I’ve completed a “day in the life” photo project, taking at least one photo each hour for an entire day (first project link here; second project link here). I recently realized that I haven’t done a “day in the life” since last year (here’s 2015). But I had one work trip left in 2016, so I got it in under the wire. Sort of. It’s more like “three days in the life.” Too often I got distracted or hurried, which sort of defeats the purpose of the project. But I combined three days worth of photos and still got some photo ops that I enjoyed. Again, quality isn’t the goal. Simply observation.
Starting with…airport security. Yes, I had Hello Kitty shoes…and socks.
I’m such a toddler.
So who belongs to the elephant? The little girl is cuddling a stuffed cat. Is the elephant hers, too?
Wandering through the terminals to connect with my next flight.
Polly the purple-nosed polar bear on a tree when I landed.
And an absolutely perfectly situated leaf in a grate.
Missouri in Wisconsin.
A weird table top.
The sweetest scent there is. Christmas memories in a bowl. My heart actually ached.
Santa needs to rethink his makeup artist.
So those were from the first two days. Here are a few leftovers from today.
The international planes fascinated me.
And the cloud cover looked like a snowy landscape below. My imagination went wild. I wondered what it would be like to be flying over the polar caps or to a snowy destination.
So there it is! Some nonsensical observations from my last road trip of the year.
Now I’m home. Exhausted, relieved, grateful. And totally ready for bed.
