Fotoeins Friday: The way out, the way in

The way out of 2015 was a way in to 2016.
The year out (of 2016) is a year in (to 2017).

I made the photo in foggy dawn minutes before scheduled sunrise on 1 January 2016. This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-9g0.

Fotoeins Friday: “Green park, 2016.001”

•   Foggy start to New Year’s Day 2016 in Vancouver.
•   Photo on 8am PST, 1 January 2016, at 696 West Cordova Street.
•   With 2016 as leap year, 8am on the first day of the year is expressed as 2016.001 in 3 decimal places; see details below.
•   The question this picture asks is: what will emerge from my head fog under first light.

366 days in a leap year multiplied by 23.934 hours per day gives 8760.017 hours in the 2016 calendar year. For the 8th hour on the first day, this is expressed as 8/8760.017 = 0.0009. This means 8am on 1 January 2016 can be expressed as 2016.001 to three decimal places. I made the photo above; this post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7HT.

4 cities, 8 hours: New Year’s Day 2016 in Vancouver

I’ve photographed the greater Vancouver area in separate 16-hour “marathons” on Canada Day (1 July) over the last few years. With the length of a winter day halved to 8 hours, I made a similar photowalk on New Year’s Day 2015. For New Year’s Day 2016, conditions began with morning fog giving way to afternoon sun and a high temperature of +2C (upper-30s F). I traveled to four locations, covering 103 kilometres with public transport; see below.

8 hours, New Year’s Day 2015 in Vancouver

I’ve photographed the greater Vancouver area in separate 16-hour “marathons” on Canada Day (1 July) in the last couple of years. Similarly, one way to crack open a brand new year is a shorter photowalk on New Year’s Day, with the length of a winter day halved to 8 hours of daylight. Very good conditions were forecast for New Year’s Day 2015 in Vancouver with mostly clear skies and a high of +6C (42F). I made the following 10 photographs from sunrise to sunset.
