under the canopy ....


some of you may know
some of you may actually follow view check out
my daily
monday through friday
blog post
under the canopy
the link to that blog is over there on the right

it started a few years ago 
i would approach the office
when we were on 42nd street
the foot traffic
the light
every morning
at almost the same time
was always different
unique
i started stopping snapping sharing
i stood in the same spot
the exact same spot
it was a ritual i really enjoyed

when the move happened 
i was sad that the ritual would end
then an instagram friend
whose day job
 was as an electrical engineer 
working on the world trade center
 said 
hey you know
 there's a canopy at 7 world trade 
there's always people coming going
 you could
 use 
that canopy 
continue the series

well
 the first visit
 i made to one world trade
 i discovered
 that
 we had a canopy too

not much foot traffic 
back then
the light wasnt as good 
 i was no longer facing east
but 
i continued

this photo
the one
 i am sharing
 here
 today
 is
 the 7 world trade canopy
(that 'spiked' thing is the famous oculous
the transportation hub designed by santiago calatrava)

i switched up 
my routine
 wednesday morning 

yes
i still took 
the 
under the canopy 
shot
 at 1world trade

if you want to check the series out

oh yeah
happy september!
