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.


Four-Years Ago Today — New Jersey

Hurricane Sandy aftermath. These were taken a short distance from my front yard. The power was out for more than a week. I took advantage of the generator in my RV to charge neighbors cell phones. Image taken with a Leica X2 camera.

  1. Where i growed up in a not really isolated house (five minutes walk to the Autobahn A43, fiveteen minutes walk to ground school) we had also overland posts and lines. But only for telephone, mostly energy (electricy and gas) was underground.

    +Dieter Fröhling Many places in Florida have the utility lines underground, but they need to be pressurized with nitrogen to keep the water out. Here they just put up taller utility poles so branches from trees can't take out the power-lines…

  3. That translates in 30m poles or so 😉
