A few of my fellow photographers have challenged themselves to a year long project called “Photo of the Day” challenge. The purpose of this is to push yourself to create something new every day for an entire year. Not only do you have to take a photograph, but you have to publish it and write something about the experience.
I really wanted to push myself so I actually got a new camera just for this challenge. It’s a FUJIFILM FinePix X100. For those who are interested in the camera, it’s a cool little retro camera that has exceptional image quality and is easy to carry. Here is a link to check it out.
Well, here is my very 1st POTD!
During my drive home today I passed this historical drive-in movie theater. With the leaves starting to change, I decided that this would be fitting for my 1st POTD post. The Mountain Drive-in, closed for many years now, brings back memories of the few times I actually saw a movie while sitting in the car. I can remember the big silver speaker that you would put in your window so you could hear the audio track. I also remember the funny snack bar animation that played on the large screen during intermission. Remembering a movie title or even an actor from this time period is impossible.
Searching on the internet I found this quote, “One of the oldest New York Drive-ins, outdoor cinemas, a vintage 1948 Drive-in Movie Theatre, located in the Catskill Mountains (Greene County Catskills), on Route 296, between Hunter and Windham, NY.”
