10 Mile Project.

The 10 mile project was started by Chris Kandel of Schenectady, NY. 
The idea is very simple, yet challenging. 
You drive 10 miles from your home (or from your work, say on a lunch break) and attempt to take an interesting photo. Sounds easy enough, right?
Well, the driving party is easy. I quite enjoy it, actually. 
The challenging part is that you don't know where you're going to end up or what will be there to photograph. It could be a parking lot at a grocery store, a school, or smack dab in the middle of nowhere. 

I waited until just this morning to do my driving. Procrastinate much?
I was surprised when I ended up at a well known park in my town. It's only about 5 miles from  my house, but apparently, if you take back roads and go the long way, it's exactly 10 miles! 
Sadly, though, everything was brown and dull.

I parked my car in the middle of the road, hopped out, and got this shot. 
I was in my pajamas. My blue polka dotted pajamas. And slippers. 
I swear there was not a single car in sight until I stepped out of the car. Then, out of nowhere, EIGHT cars drive by. Really?!

  1. I love how "dull and brown" becomes mysterious and energetic with you behind the lens.
