The Southern

I've driven past this building a few times and always loved the art-decoish look of it. Today I had my Rebel XT in the trunk and decided to stop and snap a shot. I'm not sure if this Grant Street bar is still open or not...

Coupling Up

Furnace Run
A few months ago I was reading on a photo blog(can't remember which one) about a photography contest The Science Museum of London was having called 'Coupling Up'. The photos are supposed to demonstrate the "science of attraction".
From their Flickr Group:
"50 photos from the 'Coupling up' group will be selected to be part of a permanent display in the 'Who am I?' gallery at the Science Museum.
The 50 images will be used to create a limited edition photo book for the 50 finalists, they will receive a copy of the photo book during a preview of the ‘Who am I?’ gallery."
To enter you just needed to add a photo to the flickr group so I searched my stream and selected this photo I took at Furnace Run holding the camera out and using some fill flash.
The photo was selected as one of the 50 finalists - I obviously can't take off for the London opening so hopefully I can get a copy of the book sent to me.

Indian Fever

Progressive Field
Last night I went to the Indians game with a few friends. I hadn't seen the Tribe in person for a few years now. It was amazing to see only 6,000 fans in the stadium that was sold out for a decade straight. They are bad. The bleacher seats we had were 20 bucks a piece. The last time I sat in the bleachers was in 1997 - the tickets were $8 and Cleveland won the pennant. No matter what I enjoy sitting outside on a nice evening with friends and watching baseball, but my how the mighty have fallen....

Gone Farmin'

Sweet Corn in the Morn.
Yesterday I started my Summer/Fall job down at Szalay's Sweet Corn Farm in the Cuyahoga Valley. Even though things don't really get cooking until we start picking in mid-July I have a feeling my posting frequency is going to drop off. I figured I should let my legions of readers know this now. Now that I have two cameras I hope to bring my older one with me to the farm and hopefully shoot a little more of what we do down there this year....

Country Time

On Sunday night Laura and I went with my parents to the horse boarding ranch that my Dad's friend Craig lives at. It was another great day/evening in an all-around great Memorial Day weekend. We had a few beers, cooked on the fire, and relaxed. All the cool stuff Craig has around makes for really cool photos. When the sun was setting I was shooting like crazy...
