City Hall circa 1:47am

City Hall, Buffalo, Ny 1:47am

Posting a photo a day encourages me to do things i normally wouldn’t do, like get out of my car to take photos at on my way home at 2am when its -2ºF with wind chill. brrrr.

However, i enjoy it. its nice to have motivation to do something i love. sometimes you get so set in your routine that you forget why you do what you do. Remember, sometimes you should get out of the car, endure sub-freezing temperatures and experience life.

Day Star

A few days ago, the clouds subsided and the sun peeked out to let us know that it still exists.

I lost my vision in one eye for about 3 minutes after taking this photo.

Not so much a method of prevention as it is a suggestion from the looks of it.
