Day 47: Turret

In 2017-365 by Robert Lussier0 Comments

Last night we were hit with a couple of inches of heavy wet snow, which was heavy to shovel. When i stepped out the door for my noon run I noticed the snow was still stuck to the trees, so I went back into the house and grabbed my camera.

On my route are some of the City’s historic turrets. This one was perfect for my daily shot.

On a side note, carrying my camera on a run was a good idea, but not incredibly comfortable. I need to find a more ergonomic method than a wrist strap.

What is this, some kind of series?

Yes, it is! Throughout 2017 I’m attempting to take a new image every day and post it to this blog. Ambitious, I know. Success is not guaranteed, but I’ll give it my all. You can see all of the images below. Just click on a thumbnail and flip through them.
