Took my friend Brown to pick up her car and drove by the original Holtman’s Donut Shop location and snapped this on the way back. This is an instance when there was a car behind me and what I should’ve done was pulled over and taken the time to frame things proper. And buy a donut.
Hiked through Parker’s Woods then grabbed a brew and some food at Mayday. Made for a solid Saturday.
Whenever a movie is filmed in Cincinnati, folks get excited—which is entirely warranted because this occurrence is rare. This go-round saw Todd Haynes bring Cate Blanchett, Rooney Mara and a host of others to bring Carol to life. The synopsis: “Set in 1950s New York, a department-store clerk who dreams of a better life falls for an older, married woman.”
I didn’t see any of the shooting, but I did snap these old cars outside the Phoenix. Looking forward to 2015 to watch the results of the production.
My friend Zan has a gratifying enthusiasm about things. This manifests itself in lots of ways: her (excellent) photography, love of baseball, cat chaperoning, music appreciation, all sorts of writing, and a love for the overlooked places in our lives.
She’d been working on an anthology and we talked about the possibility of me contributing over pints one day. I said designing the actual pages would be super fun and she took me up on it. So here we have the result of her keen editorial mind, and now I have a book to place on a shelf and in a portfolio.
I’d like to note, on this April day we got together for the last edit of the proof and Zan received word that the original printer backed out because of drawn male nudity. The scandal! Needless to say it made for an exciting and ridiculous scramble to find a different, less ridiculous printer.
