The 12th of the month is a day that many bloggers take photos, make a collage and then post on their blogs and/or to add to their scrapbook or photo albums. Yesterday, conscious of the date and the fact that I was going to be posting here, today, about yesterday, I kept my trusty camera handy as I went about the day’s agenda:
Quilt Guild in the morning
Lunch with some of my quilting friends
Drive to and fro
As I drove, I decided that I’d focus on capturing green: signage; trees; vehicles; etc. The latter proved to be very interesting – I drive probably 25 miles one way to quilt guild so I thought, why not count all the green cars I see on my way. Literally, during that 30-35 minutes drive, I saw about a dozen cars that could count as green…guess it’s not a color of choice for most car owners ( a quick google search reveals that white, silver, grey and black remain the most popular colors). But I digress. On my way, I was surprised to see a lot of green business signage, more than I’d have thought since red is generally regarded as the top marketing color . Think: red = stop! But again I digress.
On my way home, I thought: Starbucks is on the route and soon it will be 3:12 pm and I have my iPad and wouldn’t it be cool to capture a screen shot of the iPad at 3:12 pm today and Starbucks is known for decorating its door with a monthly theme, I could also get a photo of my reflection at Starbucks and this would be perfect and, and… Yep! You guessed it; the rest is history.
So, here you have those two photos commemorating my brilliant idea. Lots of fun.

And that’s the way it was : 3:12 pm on Mon – 3/12/2012.
