#threesixtyphive - the Second Week

Two weeks ago I started a photo project called threesixtyphive where I’m taking one image a day for a year. To be honest, other than being a convenient tool to build a body of work around, I’m not sure what the purpose of doing this is yet. At the least, it’ll be a good challenge committing to shooting each day (the cold has made this a rough week to start). At the very best, I hope to capture some great images in Philadelphia and wherever else I might be over the next 12 months.

If this is something you’re interested in keeping track of, you can visit the page I’m hosting it and sign up to get a digest of each week’s images (no spam, just one message per week). I’ll also post daily to instagram and flickr.

Day 8, captured 2/15/2015. This firehouse in Old City, Phiadelphia, had a fire inside of it last year, and is back up and functional. hey

Day 9, captured 2/16/2015. The Ars Medendi, translated “the medical art,” is a piece outside Thomas Jefferson University Hospital at 11th and Walnut. The cylinder includes sections from the human genome code, names of rainforest plants, plus quotes from Louis Pasteur, Pavlov, Galen, and more. Read more from the Southwark Historical Society. hey

Day 10, captured 2/17/2015. Walking to the train after work in Conshohocken, PA. hey

Day 11, 2/18/2015. This is the Second Bank of the United States — which happens to be one block away from the First Bank :) hey

Day 12, 2/19/2015. Yikes.. third sunset shot in two weeks. The thing is, this time of year, the sky looks pretty incredible as the train approaches Philadelphia at the end of the day. I’ll commit to an embargo on sunsets for at least the next two weeks — they don’t get much better than this one anyway. hey

Day 13, 2/20/2015. Sage is a liquor made by Art In The Age in Old City, Philadelphia — a reliable substitute for gin, and sure to make your tongue glow. hey

Day 14, 2/21/2015. Angela, out in the snow. hey
