I saw a few scenes on Mercer Street that I wanted to capture. The Princeton Theological Seminary Library was lit with street lamps that gave it a warm wonderland feeling. There are a few colorful mansions with snow-covered trees that I wanted to capture.
But there was no easy way to just pull over on Mercer Street to snap a photo. It’s a busy road. Parking is on one side only. Near the residential part of the road. Residents had already occupied these spaces.
I continued my commute via Quaker Road.
This is the USGS Water Station 01460440 on the Delaware and Raritan Canal at Port Mercer in Lawrenceville, New Jersey. There is a parking area nearby, on the other side of the canal.

We ran out of coffee beans on Friday morning. Normally the subscription from Drift Away Coffee would arrive just around this time but for some reason is a bit late. Neither Bhavna nor I can start our day without a good cup of joe. When I woke up Saturday morning the first thing on my mind was aquiring coffee. Buy the Cup in Rocky Hill is the only coffee shop in my area open before 7AM on a Saturday morning. Every cup of coffee is $1, no matter what size — 12 oz, 16 oz or 20oz. It’s a real bargain and I have a choice of Rwanda, Columbia, Mexican and a few flavoured coffees that I refuse to acknowldge. Flavoured coffee is just plain stupid.
I know the owner, Vitaliy, so every trip is a conversation. This morning we chatted for a few minutes about hacking wi-fi networks. The shop is a local hangout for the early morning residents who jog or work in the area.
I drove away from the shop enjoying the colour display from the trees lining Washington Street. I circled back around headed toward home admiring the trees in the well kept yards. I drove down to Rocky Hill section of the Canal State Park. I could see that the light was just coming over the top of the Trap Rock Quarry.
I pulled out my tripod and grabbed a few shots in Slow Shutter Cam on my iPhone 6 before my battery quit. I would have prefered to capture the scene on my Nikon but I recently lost both my SD cards. Shit happens.
I applied the Fuji Astia 100F v.2 preset from the RNI Films iOS app.
I captured this image about a year ago around the same date while driving to work. My sister-in-law loved the imaged and wanted a large canvas wrap to hang in her new home. She has a lot of my prints displayed on her walls. When I went back to look for the image I realised that I had also captured the image on my Nikon. I used this image to order a 30″x40″ canvas wrap from Canvas Pop.
I released these two iPhone images as Creative Commons Zero (CC0) images via Unsplash. They were both shot at Rodanthe Beach on a tripod using the Slow Shutter app on my iPhone . I think a VSCO Cam filter was applied but I don’t remember.
