198/365 conflict

198/365 conflict, originally uploaded by ajbrusteinthreesixfive.

we have one for the USA and one for Japan. But what if you are split between the two, half Japanese and half American?? What do you do? Given that we are in the US, it was only fair to give Nyla the Japan jersey (although she got a flag on each cheek). Turns out she was more interested in the Braves game on one of the other screens in Taco Mac…
And what a game!!! Horrible to see it end in penalty kicks, but US couldn’t put the ball in the net during the game and to be expected that this inability to score carried into the penalty kicks. Anyway, congrats to Japan – they didn’t play well, but the country deserves the win!

so that is the secret formula!! The secret ingredient comes from the rare and never before photographed Coca-Cola flower. The news is out!

weird. What are all these Coke Japan people doing here? It’s like its 2008 again, only for some reason the backdrop is midtown Atlanta instead of Shibuya Tokyo. Anyway, round two of the trips to Atlanta from CCJC and this time I was around to meet up and take them out. Great to see some old faces and some new ones for me too – hope one of these trips some brand people get to make it out too.

we have bird’s eye view. Well what about rocking horse’s eye view. Or even btter, what does Nyla see when she is rocking on her rocking horse? Probably something like this.
I had wanted to take a similar shot on my bike but when I got on it and rode for 10 second I got a flat… So that shot turned into this one. Either way, it was partially inspired by odc – “have a seat”

brought my camera to the office for the first time in a couple of months. Nice for some new stimulus. Today a rack of empties caught my eye.

193/365 farewell

today was the farewell party for my boss – he was around for 6 years or so in ATL which is super long for our position, but he got a fantastic job in Canada and will be moving up there in a couple of days. He will be missed and finding someone who can fill his shoes will be pretty near impossible. We are all really happy for him and wish him and his wife (and dog) tons of success and happiness in his new role and new city.

I have been a member of our daily challenge group for a while but never remembered to check it out. Finally totally I mistakenly stumbled into it and wish I had of done so a long time ago – it is amazing how helpful a simple word can be in deciding what to take a photo of. Now I admit, this picture sucks – and spent all of 7 minutes on making it, but the challenge was “floating” and I immediately knew what and where I wanted to take this shot. To be fair though, she actually was floating exactly where she is now, so at least the set up was pretty good.
