Took a trip to visit the print studio at Miami University to snap a few photos for a piece Tom was working on.
(More on that later)
Erin gave me a little tour as Tom did his thing. Upon Google-stalking I found not only her shop of letterpress goods,
but also that we probably crossed paths at the OTR Gateway Celebration in ’09.
Small, neat world this is.
It’s like a wooden loaf of bread.
I’ve modified Rule #1 of this here photo album.
It used to be “Take (at least) one picture every day.”
And for the most part? I do. Really.
But some days I keep close and some days I don’t feel inclined.
So I’ve decided to change the rule to:
#1. Take a photo to represent each day.
That gives me some play.
Because sometimes you just don’t want to break the moment with a shutter click.
And sometimes you just want to linger with some coffee and read the internet, and eat,
and just make it through the day without doing one damn thing other than
being the bare minimum of worthwhile.
Which, coffee and reading and taking in calories is completely worthwhile. Seriously.
The other thing I’ve come to grips with, is posting when I can, even if I’m always
a week behind. (Hence Rule #2)
The Wildcats lost to the Commodores, but only in score.
UK is still walking away with the less ridiculous team name.
Now I’m a pretty laid back guy, but some things get me really riled up. For example:
– Inconsiderate driving (Tailgating, passing on the right, no signals, text drifting)
– The lack of healthy food in drive-thrus
– Phrases like “Take our country back!” (From what, Democracy?)
– Pennies (Yup, one cent pieces, can’t stand ’em!)
– Health care costs and paperwork
Now if I could just apply my lack of interest in sports to these matters, I’d be totally and completely mellow.
It’s going to be a shame if we don’t meticulously document our rapidly evolving language.
Because I really need to know the entomology of getting one’s “wig busted.”
In other news, I got a haircut at Tiny Tina’s today.
One of those days when the weather was so nice I decided to get some
outside time, do chores done during the day, and use the evening to work.
This meant I’d stay in on a Friday night, but it was well worth the trade-off.
I pass by this truck every day I drive to the studio.
And one o’ these days, I’m going to take this exact photo again, but with a blue sky and green trees.
In somewhat related news, we had a taste of spring today (as I write this).
With temperatures in the 50’s, it felt like spring and it was nice.
