David Mathre Photography

Welcome to my Images of the Day Photo blog. My goal is to post images from each day of the year going back to 2006 when I got my first DSLR camera. Images I post on Google+ are also forwarded to this Photo blog. I am a retired chemist that worked nearly thirty years in the Pharmaceutical industry. I took my first DSLR camera on a road trip across the United States, and became hooked, with my new passion becoming a photographer. I now spend all my time traveling and taking pictures. Since then I have visited over 50 countries, many on Semester at Sea voyages. My photographic interests include travel, the natural world, landscapes, and photographic techniques. I always want to learn something new and the only way to become better is to learn from mistakes.

A friend took me on a flight in his single-engine Scout airplane. We took off at the nearby Princeton Airfield. I was able to see the local highschool, the J&J site, my backyard, and the local mine. The mine used to be owned by 3M, but is now owned by Gibralter Rock. We also saw the Merck Corporate headquarters at Whitehouse station (large hexagon building).  During the flight I took images with my new Nikon 1 V1 camera using the 10-100 mm VR lens. I also took video images of take-off and landings as viewed from the back seat. I made a movie using both time-lapsed images and the video clips. It still needs to be edited (currently 10 minutes, and no background music).
