It was a busy week, exploring the frontier, out here in New Jersey. With spring at an end, the weather was nice, and there was growth everywhere. It was a little hard to keep up with this week, though. In between the delightful bits of nature, there was also a lot of work in my path.
One of the first things that caught my eye this week, while waiting for a client was the flowers behind a fence. Some folks around Newark took it upon themselves to add some color to a drab environment. So in the night, when few were looking, they threw wildflower seeds. It is an improvement.
Then I got to my camera work at the station, kept calm and carried on.
Eventually, my camera work had me traveling to the capital of New Jersey, Trenton. I had to drive there, alone, down an open road and it was pleasant. When I arrived, things were quiet. The station had a bit of a calm vibe to it. Few travelers were passing through the station.
Trenton was just a layover while I waited to meet my associates. We had to travel to a place I only heard rumors about, an area in Hamilton, New Jersey, not far from Trenton called Grounds For Sculpture. I could not help being amazed, and questioning could I just stay for a while, a week or so. Leaving was difficult, I asked if they were hiring. I toured the place and found it absolutely engrossing. There was soo much to see, however I was there for a project and left with a lot to think about and even more, frames captured in my camera.
I moved on to more work, a disappointing task the made me miss the art I saw the previous day.
I had a gig this week, a book festival. It worked out well but was exhausting. When I was done, though was left with a satisfying feeling. This tired geek made it through a fascinating week.
