I was sick today. After dinner last night I felt nauseous. I went to bed but didn’t sleep. I tossed and turned until around 1AM when I rushed to the bathroom and lost my dinner to the toilet bowl. I felt better after throwing up but I didn’t sleep much. I took the day off from work to rest. Bhavana thinks it was a 24 hours stomach virus.

I drove through Princeton earlier this week and saw the beautiful pink flowers near the Princeton Battle Monument on Stockton Road. The morning sun looked beautiful and I imagined what it would look like with an evening sun.

It rained yesterday and this morning but when the sun came out later this afternoon I knew I would have an opportunity to try.

I didn’t get the shot I wanted;  a shot straight down the middle of the walkway. But I got something I liked. If the blossoms stay for a while, I’ll try again.

It rained today. The rain washed the pollen from the air and the land , offering me a reprieve from the sneezing, sniffling, watery torture of allergies. At first I was upset. On my way to work I noticed the fullness of the blossoms on the trees. Pink and white. I really wished I had the sun.

In the afternoon the rain stopped.  The sun came out.  I looked outside of my boss’s window and noticed the weather had changed. I went outside for a short walk.  I noticed the light coming through the trees and grabbed my camera and fired off a few shots.  Then I stood under the tree and enjoyed the cool afternoon air.

I needed only one for the 100 Day Project. Bhavana sat with me to help me choose. This was her favorite.
