#TheCrunch: Numbers In Action

#TheCrunch: Numbers In Action

And here it is, days after the Papal Visit. I have been debriefed, I’ve answered questions and is thought I’d share the data I collected on my work.

I wish I could say it was a quiet time in the North East of the United States, however, it was not. The Popes visit to the area became a Crunch point for many people. As the head of the Catholic Church, the Pontiff has the ability to change people’s lives with a touch, and this drew, or was to suppose anyway, huge crowds. To prepare for these pilgrims, many people spent months preparing. They did good work.

The Pope has come and gone and here I am reflecting on this time, paperwork handed in, images processed and I’m tired. I quantified things so I would have a better understanding of how much time and effort I put into this particular photography task.

I really saw the benefits of my time with the We35 project. I carried less and did more. Simplicity worked, helping me to integrate a lot of other tasks into my day and allowing me to help my colleagues achieve their goals for the Crunch.

Observations Overall the experience was not the best, but a learning experience. I used the Nikon camera, only, due to the battery life. I love my Sony but efficiency pays off at times. I used the 35mm lens the most because it helped me keep a low key profile and capture the images I needed. I hope I don’t have anything of this nature again anytime soon.
