For the past four months I've spent roughly 4 hours a day in my car, not only driving to work, but working, looking for standalones, driving to faraway assignments, and going on day trips on my days off. I've listened to NPR, the occasional country music station, and hip hop when I am deep in the country, eaten most of my meals in the car, looked unsuccessfully for moose, and talked to people on the phone. I've made hundreds of u-turns, and almost as many stops at the gas station, as I have driven 11,000 miles since September. I've only gotten one ticket up here, and changed the oil twice.
I've seen some really neat things along the way, some that I didn't get to photograph, others, that I did take a quick shot of and now am compiling on the blog. All of these photos shown were taken from my car within the past four months. The last one in the collage was taken today.

I worked on Christmas Day this year, the first time I've been away from home on this day, and I think I made the most of it. I worked most of the morning until early afternoon, photographing a bustling ski resort and a large community dinner, then headed to the Bassettes' home, where I enjoyed some venison tenderloin and then went sledding. Finished the night with a goose dinner at Laura's mother's home, which was built in the late 1700's, and now am pretty tired.
