You may think I was enjoying the sun setting while on some sort of vacation...I wasn't. Well, not unless you count a 10 minute break a vacation. :)

The sun is going down for the night.

On my way home...

...from work. I take the side streets to and from work. Its a pretty peaceful and easy drive. A small part of it is through a residential street that's lined with trees (with speed bumps so one can't just "zip" through it).

Coming back from break

Enjoyed what I could of the sunset. It's been so hot these past few days. I can deal pretty well with heat from living in SoCal my whole life...but throw in humidity and it makes for some very uncomfortable days.

The one I'm at now.

And I was off to a good start

I was doing so well by taking a foto every day for this project and then it kind of fell on the wayside once I started back at work. Most is due to the unpredictability of my work schedule. I had taken fotos but had forgotten to post by the end of the day.

What started out as a project of "I can do this. I can take a foto every day" has really turned out to be a fun way of remembering moments around me. While not achieving the daily foto every day for a year, I am achieving what I wanted by the way of a visual history. So I will continue to take fotos with my Blackberry and post as often as I can.

getting gas

I can't believe that it's been almost a year (July '09) that I was at this same spot and getting gas, surrounded by fire fighters doing the same, all the while we were all staring as flames from the Station fire crept down the Foothills.

*after some fancy maneuvering, I was able to transfer the foto I took from my old Samsung Rant onto my Blackberry...sorry about the quality

BK~Where I had my meeting

Years ago, I helped open this Burger King. When the construction was complete but nothing was yet put in (no equipment,no furniture...nothing) we began holding interviews to hire and train for this new store. It was here where I experienced the day of the Northridge quake. Like many around us,we lost power on our block. Me and the other manager went to go work at one of the two BKs in our district that still had power to help with the massive flow of customers coming in. So many people lined up and out the door. We shut the drive thru because we couldn't keep up. We had food product transferred in from the stores that were closed because we wanted to serve as many as we could and not let the product go to waste at the same time. It was an amazing scene...with lines of people,burgers and fries everywhere, and aftershocks.

*not the best picture but it's where I was at today*
