Photo an hour, Leap Day

I’ve wanted to do a photo an hour day for a while but I work most days so it’s hard. But on Leap Day I worked on Martha’s Vineyard (an island off of Cape Cod). The office can get pretty slow sometimes so I thought this might be a good opportunity!

5:30, I set out my clothes the night before because I knew I wouldn’t have time to fiddle around in my closet like I usually do (working on the Island means I get up 2 hours early). I still ended up changing.

6:30, Going over the Bourne Bridge. I usually drive over the Sagamore Bridge (bridge twins) because my home office is further down Cape.

7:30, I take the Ferry over to the Island and like to get some reading in :)

8:30, The computer wouldn’t recognize my temporary log-in so I had to reboot 4 times.

9:30, I organized the money in the cash drawer and restocked stickers and paper clips.

10:30, A mid-morning snack and brain storming some blog posts in between customers.

11:30, Copying some forms.

12:30, We went to the post office, bank, and took a ride around Oak Bluffs during lunch!

1:30, It started to rain so I started keeping an eye on weather conditions. Once, when it was really windy, they shut down all the boats and I thought I was going to have to stay over. But then they (a handful of my supervisors)  booked me a flight on a tiny little plane. In 45 mph winds. The last plane to leave the Island before they deemed it, “too dangerous to fly.” It’s an experience I hope to never repeat.

2:30, Just snapping a picture of a sign that moments before a customer told me “didn’t exist.” No big deal.

3:30, Waiting for the Ferry. I usually take the 5 o’clock boat home but because we didn’t know what the weather was going to do, I was told to leave early! I tried to get a picture of the snow but I don’t know if you can see it.

4:45, Snow on my car!

And when I got home I had a grilled cheese. Yum!

    I’ve never heard of a Photo-an-Hour day, but it’s a really cool idea! It might be interesting for me to do one, from the time I wake up (get woken up) till the time I go to bed. Thank you for the glimpse into one of your days — and thanks for the idea!

      You’re welcome! I’ve seen them on a few blogs, but it’s super hard to remember to take pictures all day! Hopefully you’ll get a chance to do one, I’ll keep my eye out for it :)

    Kerry, I love these fun pictures – especially the one of the sign that doesn’t exist! ;)
