WITW is Jason, Part 2: East Coast

A couple of days at home and I'm back at DIA and flying a red eye into Logan. I had timed it so that I could get a day of work done in the airport and then catch a bus down to Wood's Hole to catch the ferry to Martha's Vineyard. I was going to spend the next 4 days taking pictures of horse riding lessons and a clinic. To help get some nicer pictures I rented a very nice lens from rentglass.com. I was very happy with the quality of the lens and how the service worked. The only problem I had was making sure that I had one when I needed it. Over the course of the weekend I took close to 10,000 pictures. Not all of them turned out but I was very happy with many of them. The trip was a great experience for me. I got a much better idea of how much equipment I need (I didn't bring enough batteries or memory.) and how to manage what I did bring. I started to see the view finder in my dreams, it was pretty crazy. I had a great time and met some very neat people while I was there.

On Tuesday it was back to the mainland for me and back to work. I caught the ferry back to Wood's Hole and the bus back to Boston's South Station where I boarded the Acella train to New York City.

I spent two days in the city working and then flew back to Boulder unaware that only one week later we would have found a new house to rent and been preparing to move in. In a very quick 10 day period I had been to 8 states, been on 4 planes, 2 buses, 2 ferries, 1 very fast train and numerous subways. I had taken well over 10,000 pictures, spent time in 3 timezones, numerous unique climates from the desert to the ocean island to the city. Oh yea, I enjoyed myself immensely.
