Projects update
« on: January 11, 2018, 05:33:09 PM »
Even with 14-degree temperatures and single-digit wind chill, I got a little cabin fever last Sunday and decided to go out and catch up on the progress of a couple projects.

I figured that since it's been months since I shot whatever was going on at the Midtown Bridge, its replacement must be up by now, but as I approached on the Approach, it was obvious that there was nothing to see, so I made the mandatory U-turn at the Ice House and headed up to Moore Street.

Lots of stuff going on in that neighborhood. But first..............

1,2. I walked over to the old Oritani FC site and took a shot through the fence at the corner of E. Camden and River and did a 3-pic stitch closer to Moore St (and over the fence).

3. Back up on Moore, I shot this 2-pic stitch from the parking lot behind Main St businesses and just south of the library.

4. Since this project wraps around to Main St, I walked toward E. Salem and took this shot on Moore to include the Wells Fargo Bank.

5. I took this crappy 2-pic stitch at Main and Salem. My shooting hand was frozen and it came out a bit lopsided (the stitch - not my hand). Straightening it out in post production chopped off the very top and most of the street. Better that than my finger.

6,7. Continuing with the wrap-around shoot, I made a 2-pic stitch from Moore and E. Salem and a 3-pic stitch from Moore, between E. Salem and E. Camden.

Enough! The cabin fever has been chilled from my body. I need to go home, warm up and take.........

8. ..........a crappy shot of what the Main and E. Salem part looks like from my living room WITHOUT cutting part of the top off.

I went for a nice, long walk on Main St yesterday and decided to check up on a bunch of projects, starting at 76 Main and working my way north:


76 Main

1. I took a 2-pic stitch through the back fence and it looks pretty much like it did a year ago, except there's a hole on the Main St side of the mural (you can see a parked car's sunlit taillight through it) and a couple of panels are off the Bridge St side and thrown on some debris.

2. A closeup stitch of those panels

3. The credits panel - has this been here all along? I've never seen it before.............it looks like it could be displayed better.


The hole at Main & Mercer

1,2. Also looks the same as last year


210 Main

1,2. Not much change to see on the outside. I'm sure it's a different story on the inside.


Main/Salem/Moore

1-4. Front, back, inside and in-between all look quite different from my earlier post of two weeks ago.

1-5. The Current here also seems to be flowing fairly rapidly from two weeks ago.
