Oh, And Happy New Year!
In bed by 10 on New Year's Eve, up before the crack of dawn on New Year's Day, bundled up tight against the cold, cameras in hand. We've developed a New Year's ritual. We'd started a little tradition when we lived in New York that involved getting up really early on New Year's Day to take a long, quiet walk from our place in Queens over the Queensboro Bridge through Times Square and down to lower Manhattan. We continued the practice this year with a walk from our place in northwest Portland over the Burnside Bridge to the Doug Fir for coffee and J & M for breakfast. We took tons of photos along the way. It made me think I might need to get back to doing Original Intent posts. It's been a while.
