September 2009: 12 0f 12

Well, it is the 12th, so time again for my participation in Chad Darnell's 12 of 12 project. 12 photos on the 12th of the month to document my day. You can see the other participants here.

I began doing Chad's 12 of 12 years ago, and later discovered that there was a pocket of Geocachers who also participated, mostly through the Podcacher message boards. That community has grown a bit, and is doing a special project this month. Since the 12th fall son a Saturday this month Podcacher and several other podcasts encouraged geocachers to make sure to participatein the project, and to be sure to post some geocaching pictures. They are cross posting their photos here.

I wasn't sure at first that I would be able to participate in the Geocaching 12 of 12, since I had meetings in Connecticut today related to a production of Miracle Worker that I am designing there. I headed out to the train station pretty early this morning, earlier than I get up most weekdays even, but I had 3 hours of train time in front of me to get to my meetings.

My track at Grand Central Terminal, one of my favorite places in the city.

In CT the first order of business was to check on the progress of the set. They seems a bit behind frankly, but they have a bout a week before tech starts, so they should be able to pull it out.

Besides meetings I was also raidning all the prop storage and furniture storage for the theatre today, choosing furniture, and set pieces.

Lunch time! This handyman repair service truck was parked outside the resteraunt. I don't know if he was eating there or working on something. I just loved the graphic.

Prop warehouse #3 for today, the Yale Theatre Art's props storage. This one was fun. I love seeing all the old random props and trying to guess what show they may have been for.

The holy grail of props for this show, the water pump! I sort of love that the set is very stark and geometric, but the pump, the one thinsg that Helen interacts with the most in the show, is ornate and flowery.

At the reception desk for the prop storage. Trust me, I needed them. Do you see the dust on that water pump?

At the Metro North stop in New Haven, on the way home. I do enjoy the convenience of Metro North.

The vaulted ceiling outside the Oyster Bar in Grand Central. I had frankly never really paid attention to this area before. Now I want to eat there. Is it an over priced tourist trap? Does anyone know?

Between the subway and Grand Central I did manage to catch one cache! GC1WQC9. A year and a half ago I had Manhattan down to a single cache that I hadn't found. After a long winter, and 10 weeks away this summer it is up to over 60 unfound caches on Manhattan... I need to get busy again!

Just before I stepped onto the subway to head home. An over cast and foggy night in the city is a great time to photograph! And that was my day. Two states, three prop houses, two meetings, one geocache... and it is bedtime. See you next month!

Side joke/bonus shot for anyone visiting from the Geocaching website... I may not have been caching, but I managed to find two of the largest ammo cans I have ever seen today!!
