23/365 The Trinity Root

~When the towers of the World Trade Center came crashing down on 9/11, a large sycamore tree in the church yard at St. Paul's Chapel took the brunt of the damage, saving the chapel. The root of that tree was excavated in 2003 and sculptor Steve Tobin memorialized it with this bronze sculpture which now sits in Trinity's courtyard.

Tobin created the bronze sculpture from 300 individual casting of the tree's roots to commemorate the events of September 11. The sculpture was dedicated here on this site on September 11, 2005. The original sycamore roots, painstakingly preserved by Tobin with the help of tree experts, now rest permanently in the St. Paul's Chapel churchyard. (From sign near sculpture)

17/365 Welcome to my world

~Great photography this isn't. But part of Project 365 is taking pictures of our every day lives and this is a big part of where I spend my time.

~Yes, it's messy. It's not always this way--it has been worse. And occasionally for a brief and shining moment my desk will be neat.

16/365 Doodle

~I doodle a lot, especially when I'm in meetings. I photoshopped this more than I originally had in mind to do--I actually wanted to just post a doodle as it was, but it was hard to get one to look natural.

15/365 Old skool magnet

~My refrigerator is covered with magnets and pictures and notes...but I couldn't get a good picture of the whole things. So you get this instead. I have no idea how long I've had this, but a long time.

13/365 Marcus Mitten Bear

~Isn't he cute? It seems as though impending grandmotherhood has given me license to buy things that I wouldn't pay much attention to otherwise (although I've always had a soft spot for teddy bears and the like). And he was 75% off--so he cost approximately $5. Couldn't resist.

10/365 Deja vu

~Whenever I buy Girl Scout cookies it takes me back to my own days as a Girl Scout. I still have my Junior Scout book packed up somewhere, but I had forgotten about my badge sash until I got some stuff from my mom's house last summer.

~And yes, that is a photography badge...I think my interest in photography started back then when I got a Kodak Instamatic for Christmas in 5th or 6th grade. But it was only about three years ago that I first got a decent camera so I could pursue it.

~btw, I was terrible at selling cookies!

~I'm not happy with the quality of this photo, but I'm too tired to work at it tonight...maybe I'll do a retake later.
