Picture Perfect Day
Monday, Mar. 14, 2005, 11:33 p.m.

QUESTION: Ordinary day?

WHAT I LEARNED: Every day can be a little extraordinary if you pay attention.

One of the things I love about my job is the way that ordinary moments of the day can turn into moments of sudden beauty between the raindrops and traffic, between a walk down a cold street and a cup of coffee. Take for example these views all shot on average workdays recently.

Driving in to work on a cold, wet morning.

Finding a little grandeur between road construction and rush hour traffic on the way home.

It's easy to run on auto-pilot. I confess to doing it regularly. However, how many picture-perfect moments lurk in town and country and everyplace in between? I believe the answer is - quite a few - as these just-an-ordinary-day pictures demonstrate.
