I don’t have this in my profile but I’m an “INTJ”. This is based on this Myers-Briggs personality test that is generally quite accurate. I can’t say I disagree with the analysis as I’ve taken the personality test every year over a decade and the results are always the same. People are often quite impressed with the little analysis at the end! Remember to answer honestly, even if you don’t like the answer (no one will see!)

I have chosen to share the private link to my test results.

I saw some of the beautiful early blog posts for this weekly challenge and I knew I’d not find anything like those. No historic cobblestone lined city streets with centuries old buildings. Up until recently, my town, Skillman, was rural. As the town grew in the last decade, the old roads widened just a bit while the amount of motor traffic increased. New roads were built for the homes of the new residents. While there are some beautiful country roads, the roads are narrow and there is no curbing to stop and park a car. Unless you like parking your car in a ditch. I don’t.

So … while photographing another event I walked down Nassau Street in Princeton. I stopped a few times to grab some shots. The weather was great, sunny and cool with few clouds in the sky. People were out enjoying shopping and dining al fresco in the restaurants.
