The Pantry

The Pantry

It's hard to learn on an empty stomach. Tunxis Community College in Farmington, CT has a foodshare program called The Pantry, where food donations are collected and distributed to students who should be more hungry for knowledge than for food.

Donated food and household supplies go from bins around the campus to an actual pantry where "insecure" students can get them to help them through the semester.

Double Vision

Double Vision

Rear view mirrors are really two mirrors in one. Unlike regular mirrors, the glass is a wedge with two reflecting surfaces. There's the normal-looking silvered surface at the back, and the anti-glare surface on the front that reduces light. You flip it when the lights of cars behind you are too bright. You can see both reflections in this photo.

A bonus effect that is worth experimenting with is the clarity of the mirror in contrast with the bokeh of the rest of the image around it, which can be used to enhance the depth of a photo.

Barbecue station

Barbecue station

At Tony Ringtail's 2011 Memorial Day barbecue in West Windsor, NJ.

This setup has everything. Grills, prep tables, coolers, hot pots, ingredients, salsa made on the spot, burgers, grilled veggies, grilled pineapple, shiny utensils and pans, a good arrangement... THIS is a barbecue.
