All the photos on this website were taken by me in the city of New Brunswick, NJ, USA. Hopefully, you will find them interesting.

in the way

Somtimes powerlines just get in the way of everything! Especially this picture of the Hilton Hotel peaking out behind the trees off Route 18.

"we be burnin' "

O.K. This has to be the most bizarre photo I have ever taken. Can you guess what it is? It's a common occurrence for a klutz like me. Again, the hint is in the title. I swear if anyone guesses what it is, I will take your address and mail you a nifty gift. Scouts honor, (and I was in the Girl Scouts so I really can honor it.) Oh, and be specific!

Drive by

A drive by shot of downtown New Brunswick. I was going to crop out the part of my door that got in the way, but somehow, it frames the picture. I think it looks better in than out. What do you think?

A close up night shot of Alexander library on College Ave. Many a late night freaking out have been spent here...I miss school.

"The healthcare city"?

I never noticed this moniker on the bridge by the train station before. Although New Brunswick does have two reputable hospitals, I don't quite think that qualifies them to be known as "the health care city". Actually right now, the nurses from one of the hospitals, (Robert Wood Johnson) are on strike because their hospital insurance does not cover them unless they are treated at RWJ, (which takes away any privacy since they'd be treated by their co-workers). As far as I know, this is the only sighting I have found of the moniker, but I'll keep my eyes open for it now.

academica nuts

An early morning shot of the dean's office on College Ave. The pillars and landscaping was done last year in an effort to spruce up the aging campus, which was established in 1771.

McDonalds off of Somerset Street. This is as American as it gets.

running out

Can anyone guess what this is a picture of? The hint is in the title.

I'll post an explanation up after I get some interesting guesses. So start guessing!

*Ok, time to explain what the heck this is a photo of and actually, the first poster was correct. It is in fact, a ham sandwich. Ha-ha, no, but he/she was correct about it being a person running. I was on the roof of the College Ave parking deck and looked straight down and saw this woman in all white. She was running down an alley between a large brick building (top) and the cement parking deck (bottom). The night setting on my camera gave this creepy ghostly effect. Thanks to everyone who guessed, I really enjoyed reading them!

last night

The building to the right is the train station photographed at night from the Ferren Parking deck. This train goes all over, but most people take it to New York City. Depending on what mood I'm in, passing by the train station elicits different reactions in me. Last night, it was a nostalgic feeling. I started missing all the times my friends and I would be stuck waiting for a train. It was usually freezing, too crowded and there'd be the faint smell of urine hanging in the air. At the time, it would be unbearable and we'd wish the train would just hurry up and get there. But it was in these moments that the best stories were in the making, the best jokes were made, and the best friends were solidified. Yeah, last night was a good night to pass by the train station.

table setting

The other day I went to a birthday party for a one-year-old boy. I was eating ice-cream and admiring the candy watch party favor when I took this high flash picture.
Of course, I can't remember what it was like to be one, but I wish I could. Because the birthday boy looked so happy, so loved, that I'd give anything to remember every single happy and loving moment of my life.

on the way home

Sometimes you just have to stop and photograph the roses.

market woes

In keeping with the primary color theme: C Town. One weird thing about New Brunswick is that it is almost devoid of supermarkets. C Town is a low quality supermarket located in the "bad" part of town and has virtually no competitors. Why doesn't anyone build better supermarkets? There's no need to because all the people that matter, ( i.e. higher income groups) can afford to drive miles to the market of their choice, while those without personal transport are left with C Town.

The thing is, today was such a beautiful day, that even C Town looked splendid.

no one brings flowers anymore

Today was a grim, dreary, drizzly day, but not the nice kind that makes you want to put on warm socks and read. Today was like when the hem of your jeans get all wet and it makes you feel cold and lonely.

This is a photo from St. Peters cemetery. I've never really gone into a cemtery before, but the daily photo was a good excuse to go poking around.

Well Hello

Welcome to NewBrunswickDailyPhoto!
I just started this site on an impulse, so for today only, I've had to dig into my archives to find a photo of New Brunswick. This is a shot of a graduation ceremony at Rutgers University's Douglass Campus. I like the man in the lower left corner. He looks like he's ordering peanuts at a baseball game.
