Sepia Scenes



Brought to you by Sepia Scenes.

Ah New Haven. Not the New Haven you think, but the New Haven I called home for two years while living in North East Indiana. It actually was an area of Ft. Wayne, a Rail Road town that given time will grow on you. It is not uncommon for Joe to say "I wish we had never left" and I nod in agreement.

Retrospect is everything, isn't it? I would still be employed by the Beverage Co (and would have received my 10 year award!!dang!) and he would not have gone through the terrible year in Lou. working for a supervisor that nearly killed him...oh well,it is all in the past now. We have moved on.

I have found a job with a major restaurant chain in their Retail area. The orientation began yesterday. Four of us were being inducted into the Corporation and having the Employee Handbook read to us in between watching videos from the 1980's and eating our one free meal.

I am the oldest of the group of four. Out of the group of four, two are college students, three are women, one is a musician, and three are from Indiana.

Coincidence?

I think not. Hoosiers are taking over the world.

I continue to look another job that does not require me to work week-ends but I am relieved all the same.

Oh, I love this!
The peeling paint, the broken windows, the mist, the graininess -a perfect sepia package.

I love it too, since old buildings are always a little bit of a mystery. You just know they have a story to tell. And the mist envelopes it adding to its mystery. My favorite picture of the day.

Congratulations on the job. Sometimes having one job leads to another one. You will meet people and make connections. How was your meal?

Lovely shots and it works well in sepia.

Very nice. I got some similar shots today and I'll be posting them on the photo blog as I play around with them. Don't you love digital photography?

Beautiful shot.
Jobs: sometimes we can only scratch our heads and hrmph at the absurdity of it. Best of luck!
(And sometimes, it is easier to get another job while you still have one.)
