What did you film on 12.12.12?
People exercising, pets and their owners, families, open to anything.

11-11-11 The photographs are from three towns, East Rockawy, Lynbrook, and Malverne, NY from 8 am to 11 pm. People exercising, graves of soldiers, dogs, fall leaves, a porch, and a family expecting a child. The sky was blue with a cold wind and mostly sun. 9-11 10th anniversary events on top of 11-11-11.

This was a good exercise in appreciating each hour of the day and because of the finite nature of this assignment, 24 hours to shoot, no more. The minutes felt like water that kept flowing downsteam with no stopping. The newspaper, a dog on a couch, and a kid on a computer.

The cemetery in Lynbrook was empty except for the American flags waving hello and goodbye in the brisk wind on the graves of soldiers. Something about The Luis Massa grave (1947-1969) , a 22 year old dead in Vietnam, same age as as one of my kids, made me stop and slow down for a few minutes. Some graves still had Halloween decorations, more flags, and of course stones. Then to Lynbrooks's Veteran's Memorial near the train station. No one was there, but a man on the bench waiting for a ride or the next train.

Next stop was a house off a main street in Lynbrook. My thanks to the kindess of a family in Lynbrook with a pregnant Mom, whose baby arrived 5 days later on the 16th, I was able to step inside of a piece of their life. We were hoping to have an 11-11-11 baby, but he wasn't ready for that. Malverne came after that, a small town that hosts the ground hog Malverne Mel.

Home after that and one more dog on a porch with a leaf.
