Day 9: The Other Jay Peak

I've been told that the pointy peak in the distance is Jay Peak.

What: A view of farm fields and Jay Peak

Where: the intersection of Town Highway 8 and Rocking Rock Road in Greensboro, Vermont 

When: October 30, 2015

Why: East Coast skiers might know Jay Peak as fancy winter resort with great skiing, but that's not why I know it. To me, this photo reminds me what it feels like to achieve a really big, hairy, audacious goal. In 2010 I was hired to work at a software company and one of my first big projects was working on a product codenamed Jay Peak. 

Fast forward to 2015...when I found out I'd be able to see the other Jay Peak - the real one - from my window, I had to take a picture for posterity. 

Day 8: Independent Spirit

It was only a matter of time before I would post a photograph of my dog. When I took this picture, we were both practicing things very, very early on this Saturday morning: I was practicing photography and she was practicing her sit (or, as we call it, her hup. It's a hunting dog thing.) 

She's a year and a half old, so there's still a lot of puppy in her. Her name is Indie, which is short for her fancy name: Crosswinds Independent Spirit. I've had her since she was 8 weeks old. She is my first dog, my "Seize the Day!" puppy. And yes, she lives up to her name exactly as you'd expect she might.

Who: Indie. She also goes by "Puppychub." 

When: Saturday, October 31, 2015 at the crack of dawn (literally)

Where: Greensboro, Vermont

Why: At sunrise there were exactly three things to photograph: the dairy farm across the street, a view of Jay Peak (at least, I think it was Jay Peak) and my dog, the reason I was up at dawn in the first place.
