#WeeklyGrindThingie: Another week brought to you by the Letter C, DONT PANIC

C is for coffee, and it would have been an impossible week, exploring the frontier, without it and a towel.

As the season started to change, the weather started to become a little erratic. The end of spring, filled with sunshine and rain, had me traveling in many different directions. With this, I got to explore my photography in a few new was and see familiar vistas from different perspectives.

The week began with fleet week, a United States Navy, United States Marine Corps, and the United States Coast Guard tradition in which active military ships recently deployed in overseas operations dock in a variety of major cities for one week. While trying to view ships, I got to explore some different parts of a facility I work at, in Hoboken New Jersey.

The next day it rained, and I found myself working is some long exposures from the office. I produce some Instagram frames for my job, and it is always helpful to bring some different views to give the feed something different now and then.

This week also saw my working a Sony event at Mack Camera. I got to talk about gear with people and have geek out on photography.

At that event, and entirely by accident, I ended up with a 49mm Pro master red filter. It’s supposed to be used for making dramatic black and white landscapes, but I went nuts with it and tried it on everything, especially coffee.

I tried it with landscapes too.

One of the most important things to note this week was towel day. It is “an annual celebration on the 25th of May, as a tribute to the late author Douglas Adams (1952-2001). On that day, fans around the universe carry a towel in his honour.” As any good Hitchhiker should know, a towel is a necessity. “The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy states that a towel is the most important item a hitchhiker can have. It also mentions that “to know where one’s towel is” means to be in control of one’s own life.”

These images, from my week of photography, describe to you and explain visually the light, places, textures, characters I’ve observed in my travels. If you can spare a little of your time and share in the wonders, I have seen.
