I went into this weekend thinking my schedule was totally open.
Nothing planned on the books.

Turned out my calendars weren’t syncing right and I ended up with a ton on the plate:
Crafty Supermarket, Record Store Day, tasty food, Mary Poppins, Kick Ass and a happy hour.

screech owl

Got up early to catch the last burst of color from all the flowers at the Cincinnati Zoo.

This little critter was hard to get looking directly at the camera.
He kept rotating his head all around.

Lastly, note his pupils. I wonder if that is an effect of the shadow and sun.

a ton of tulips

90,000 tulips at the Zoo, with over 40 varieties.
I figure I was about a week or so late, as many were dropping petals – but it was still a lovely sight.

wall art

Long day at work, but good.
Ended up staying in on a Friday night wandering my apartment trying to fire off a shot to capture the day.
This photo of a photo printed on canvas will have to do.
It’s some unidentified wall art that was super reasonable so I don’t feel too bad by sun fading.

Testing the camera

Thursday, April 15, 2010

Sometimes I think my camera is bonkers (images are too soft, metering is whacky), but I’ve
found that just shutting it down and starting over seems to work.

Here I was testing to make sure things stuck in focus with a few items sitting on my desk.
I’ve taken pictures of these things more than once, but I’m still not bored with ‘em.

In other news, I filed my taxes.

Transit Connect

Wednesday, April 14, 2010

The Ford Transit Connect has an unfortunate name, but it’s one of my favorite new vehicles
on the road these days.

Ford has been cookin’ with oil of late. Their upcoming Focus and Fiestas look to be competitive
offerings, and the updates to the Fusion, Taurus and F-series trucks have all been solid.

But this car/truck thing is the closest I’ve seen to a modern and economical road trip hauler.

You could pack a lot of t-shirts in this sucker.

A hat tip to the delivery man that let me give it a once over and ask about fuel economy.
(27 MPG on a good day, he said.)

Also known as Dandelions but not usually “wildflowers.”

the quartet that wasn’t a quartet

Monday, April 12, 2010

Caught wind of old friends playing jazz out at the Northside Tavern on a school night.
Though I worked super late, I wrapped up in time to catch their last set.

Good times, great music.

Oh, and these guys are called simply The Quartet, even though there might be six folks playin’.
Just thought I’d clear that up.
