112/366: Misty Mountains 
Camera: Phone
Context: View during part of my morning run
Notes: I need to start carrying my DSLR with me more - at least when I'm not running - as my phone just doesn't do these incredible views justice. 


111/366: No Place Like Home
Camera: Phone
Context: Arrival back home after two weeks in NYC
Notes: Between the four hour time difference and my connecting flight being repeatedly delayed, I was so excited to go to bed. 


110/366: The High Line
Camera: DSLR

Context: Walking around the city on my last day
Notes: I definitely recommend this NYC park formed out of an old rail line. Even though it was crowded with tourists, it was very much worth exploring.  


109/366: A Tree Grows in Chelsea
Camera: DSLR
Context: Walking around the city
Notes: I wonder what had happened to the trees on this block that they needed protective barriers to grow. 


108/366: Pretty Rubricas
Camera: Phone
Context: Dealing with documents
Notes: I think we need to bring the rubrica back!


107/366: In the Subway
Camera: Phone
Context: Waiting for the train to work
Notes: The tunnels fascinate me. They are gross and creepy, but at the same time interesting and the play of light in them can be beautiful. 


106/366: Water Sampling Station
Camera: Phone
Context: An evening walk around the Upper West Side
Notes: NYC is so full of the mix of mundane and strange, the impractical and the utilitarian.

105/366: An Adams' House
Camera: DSLR
Context: Touring Quincy, where John Adams and John Quincy Adams were born
Notes: This was the house in which John Adams was born. Sadly, no photography was allowed in the houses. 


104/365: Coriolanus on the Commons
Camera: DSLR
Context: A performance of Shakespeare's tragedy on the Boston Commons
Notes: I was really wishing I'd had my zoom lens, but I do like that this photo pretty accurately represents my vantage point. 


103/366: Besties at Beehive
Camera: DSLR
Context: Dinner at Beehive in Boston
Notes: I definitely recommend this Back Bay restaurant. Also I recommend hanging out with dear friends whenever you can. 


101/366: MacBar
Camera: Phone
Context: Dinner at MacBar in Noho
Notes: This was the most amazing mac and cheese that I've had in my life. It had to be documented. That is all.


100/366: Doggies playing in the park
Camera: Phone
Context: A morning in Central Park
Notes: I was sitting on a bench, drinking a cup of coffee, and I couldn't help but notice how much fun these dogs were having. 


99/366: Cataloging
Camera: Phone
Context: The current workspace
Notes: I hadn't intended this to be my photo for 365, but I ended up forgetting to take any photos in the evening. 


99/366: Planetarium by night
Camera: DSLR
Context: Walking by the Natural History Museum and Planetarium
Notes: I took this using the night setting on my camera, but I think it would have turned out better if I'd been using a tripod.

98/366: Columbus Circle
Camera: DSLR
Context: An afternoon walk along Broadway
Notes: I wish I could have timed the shot so that the car wouldn't have been in it, but that's tricky in the city. 


97/366: Not your everyday hopscotch
Camera: DSLR
Context: In Central Park
Notes: I just randomly sat on this bench. It took me a few minutes to note what was on the sidewalk in front of me. 


96/366: The view from the plane
Camera: DSLR
Context: Flight from Anchorage to Seattle
Notes: If I had actually had the window seat I would have taken a lot more photos, as this was just the start of what was a gorgeous sunset. I didn't want to be annoying or come off as a creepster to the woman who did have the window seat, though. 


95/366: Magic Mushroom
Camera: Phone
Context: Giant mushroom growing in the back yard
Notes: I honestly only took this photo because I just downloaded the instagram ap for my phone and wanted to test it out. 


94/366: Breakfast

Camera: DSLR
Context: New dishes should be documented
Notes: I wanted to get a sense of how much better lit our kitchen and dining area are, and I think on sunnier days that there will be some decent food shots in my future.

93/366: Rainy, evening view
Camera: Phone
Context: Coming home from drinks at our friends' place
Notes: I realized that I hadn't taken a photo all day because I'd been running around taking care of errands. This one's not bad for just taking a quick shot.


92/366: View on my first run
Camera: phone
Context: Along a bike path near my neighborhood
Notes: The phone and the lighting in the picture don't do this view justice. It was amazing to take this in on my first little run in my new town.

91/366: Misty Mountains
Camera: DSLR
Context: The seventh and final day of our trek
Notes: This was yet another shot from the car. The mist and fog made for a dramatic shot. 


90/366: Near the Yukon-Alaska Border
Camera: DSLR
Context: Day 6 of the journey
Notes: This was another shot from the car. I was pretty pleased with how it turned out, as I had to use manual focus. 


89/366: The Ghost of a General Store
Camera: DSLR
Context: An abandoned outpost on the Alaska Highway
Notes: I kind of wish I had gotten closer and taken some interior shots as well. 


88/366: Mile 0 of the Alaska Highway
Camera: DSLR
Context: Dawson Creek, British Columbia on Day 4 of our trip
Notes: I totally thought the town was Dawson's Creek and was really excited to talk to a college friend who was obsessed with that show about it, but a punctuation mark and a letter make all the difference. I took this shot from a moving car, so I'm pretty happy with how close to centered it came out. 


87/366: Edmonton 
Camera: DSLR
Context: Day 3 of our drive took us to Edmonton, Alberta
Notes: I liked this shot from the lawn of our hotel: greenery, refinery, city. 


86/366: Mines in the Prairies
Camera: DSLR
Context: Day 2 on the drive to AK
Notes: We saw what appeared to be potash along the road in Saskatchewan. 


85/366: Hitting the Road
Camera: DSLR
Context: First day of drive to AK
Notes: Bailey was a trooper over the course of 6.5 days in the car, but here she didn't even know what the future was to hold.
