from the jury break room window

 thats columbus park
 down there
 its on the edge

 when you serve regular jury duty
 you go to chinatown
 for lunch
 walk a bit further to little italy

 my last day as a grand juror was monday
  it will be 8 years
 they can summon

 i admit
 i went
 into this 
with a chip on my shoulder

 i had wanted to serve
 in the afternoon
 the morning session

 i also
 preconceived impressions
my fellow jurors

 i have to admit
 for the most part
 i was wrong

 it was a positive experience overall

   i took this photo
 we were leaving 
at the end
our last session 

i used
 buz sim effect
 this time 
 it wasn't a focused photo
grand jury is a secret process
 no one should be identified
 we only knew one another
our juror numbers 

oh and i didn't sign either of these photos


  1. That top shot is just glorious. Love that blue sky....big blue sky.

  6. I hear you about the chip on the shoulder going into jury duty. I had a summons earlier this year. Got it postphoned for 2 months and then called again. Fortunately, the day before when I logged in to see if I had to show .... NOPE, I was off the hook! Woot! Woot!

  7. Congratulations on completing your duty. Now it's back to normal, right?

  8. Daryl, I like both of these shots! Glad you have completed your Civic duty. You will enjoy getting back to normal. If that's at all possible at this time of year!

  9. I'm glad it was a mostly good experience, Daryl, and I'm sure it feels good to have it behind you. xo.
