On the morning of Day 7 of Thirty Days 2009, I stopped by Lower Downtown Denver on the way to the gallery. It was quiet early in the morning as I looked for an image in the Coors Field area. As I got back to my car, I noticed a disposable camera which looked like it had a bad night lying next to a tree and got low to get a few images. In reviewing the captures for the day this one just stood out to me, making it the image for Day 7.
The sixth day of Thirty Days 2009 brought a First Friday opening and a busy day at gallery nrc. I had hoped to get some images during the evening but was unable to find the time to do so. However afterwards when I stopped by at Tennyson Photospace, the owners dog Ringo was chilling. I got low and started taking some pictures at high ISO, and then it got to a point where Ringo started put up his paw basically saying enough of the paparazzi for one evening. As you can see, Ringo is a rescued greyhound.
As I was walking towards the Denver Library, I normally cut through the plaza area in front of the Denver Art Museum. As I entered this area, I noticed the shadow of some railings which looked like hangers to me. With interest in this, I stopped and grabbed some images and while getting low on the stairs found the Day 5 image of Thirty Days 2009.
This evening I was at gallery nrc working on some items for the upcoming First Friday. As the sun set I decided to get the camera out and take some images. The initial thought was getting Chris, the owner of Tennyson Photospace, working and then it morphed into some other possibilities. However in reviewing the images it was back to the original idea for Day 4 of Thirty Days 2009.
The image for today is a little different than you normally see on this blog. I stepped inside the studio today and photographed some images which are to be used by my leads group. Leads Group 7 meets at 11am, thus the 7/11 concept of using casino games for the new branding being worked on by members of the group. After some of the shots we did this afternoon, I played around with the set-up and grabbed the following image this evening. It may be time to move all in…
Sometimes your plans just don’t happen as you hope they would. This was the case this evening when I hiked up Green Mountain in Lakewood to try to get a shot of Denver and the rising full moon. I was in the place I wanted to be, however the clouds prevented the moonrise from being visible at my location. Getting to the location ahead of time to look at the options for the shot I was thinking about getting. In addition to scouting the area, I also had the chance to photograph and as the sun was setting over the Rocky Mountains a trail runner and his dogs came down the path leading to the image for day two.
Taking advantage of the extra hour of sleep with daylight savings, I headed out to photograph in the Riverfront Park area of Denver this morning. There was a little chill in the air, but all of the snow from the prior week had been melted which allowed me to explore the park area as people were out walking their dogs with a cup of coffee in hand.
As I crossed the bridge back towards Union Station and where I parked I noticed the position of the sun and played around with getting the steps of the bridge included as well as the starburst of the sun resulting in the first image of Thirty Days 2009.
Today is Halloween which means it is also the final day of October. As I have done the past two years, a new version of Thirty Days will start tomorrow.
If you are new to following the blog, during the next thirty days I will go out and take a photograph every day and post it to the blog. The image may not be the best of the day, but allows for something to be reviewed and critiqued by the readers of the blog.
I am looking forward to this once again this year, and hope you will check back often to the blog during the month. Also once again this year I will let you vote on your favorites at the end of the project.
