These two shots were taken within minutes of each other. Isn’t it amazing how quickly the light transforms?

And here’s how the sky looked just minutes before the two jumps. (Taken with an iPhone)

Sun dips into the Pacific Ocean

The end of today

AM jumps at an abandoned gas station.

Something new, somewhere old

What ever caused the demise of the full service gas station? Apparently, the oil crisis of the 1970s marked the beginning of the end of full service gas stations. Oil companies figured that people wanted to pump their own gas to save a few pennies. Soon the attendants, who would walk up to your rolled-down window and ask, “leaded or unleaded?” then wash your windows and check your oil while your gas was getting pumped, were no longer needed. Feeling nostalgic? It’s illegal to pump your own gas in Oregon or New Jersey so you can experience the luxury of full service in both of those states.

Flashback: When I was eight years old, I used to think the word “motor” meant addiction. I clearly recall sitting in a passenger seat when my dad drove to the gas station and seeing signs that read “No Smoking. Stop your motor.”

It is acceptable to take a seat when the host/hostess is not present so long as you do not touch anything.

Reprogramming

Thursday, January 20th, 2011
First steps after gravity shifted.

First steps after gravity shifted.

It’s been three weeks since I last posted. I thought I would need a lot more time to recover from 2010 and my 52 Project, but already I’ve been in withdrawal, which I take as a very good sign.

So, yes, I am reprogramming in 2011. There will be different ways to defy gravity, experiments with lighting, and a haphazard posting schedule. I’m also learning how to get by with just one fully functioning hand because I broke my middle finger on my left hand over the weekend.

AM in the rain on Christmas Tree Lane

51/52

Every December for the past 60 years, 52 homeowners on Thompson Street in Alameda string thousands of lights and display other holiday decorations for Christmas. Every home on Christmas Tree Lane is aglow with lights and even the center median is decorated.

Week 49: One jump froggy

AM's signature froggy jump in black and white

49/52

No motion-based 52 Project of mine would be quite right without including my signature froggy jump. For the last 10 years, anytime I had the opportunity to jump on demand, it looked a lot like this. The evidence is below.

This is my first in what hopefully will be a series of in-air closeups. I posted a few different crops of this image on my Facebook page for people to vote on. This was the winner. Thanks for the feedback, voters!
