When my friend Heather saw that local restauranteur Jeff Ruby was going to have a big birthday bash if he could break 5,000 followers on Twitter, she was suspect. Very suspect.
So when it actually came to fruition and was scheduled to take place at the Convention Center, she told me I should tag along because there’d be free food and drinks. We got there way too early, but stopped back as the place filled up and we caught the last few songs from Kool and the Gang, which is essentially Menudo at this point.
A few more snapshots, including one of yours truly
If you’re like me and you like beautiful illustrations and maps, get this book. It’s seriously fantastic.
A bit more about it on the publishers website. (A big tip of the hat to Raul of TinyBop for the heads up)
First time trying out the new (our third!) taqueria to open up in Northside: Barrio.
Try the elote, caesar salad with deep fried cornbread croutons, and if you’ve room? Churros with chocolate for dessert.
Also? Fantastic patio.
Tom’s VERY LARGE TV project comes together. A set piece for the production of School House Rock at his kids’ school.
I’ve no idea what Tom was making when I got to the studio, but it involved lots of drilled holes and biscuit joiners, which simply typing makes me smile for some reason.
Rain came later in the day…
Two subjects that I’ve photographed many times before, but warranted capture again this brilliant day.
This marked a particularly heavy week, workwise. Juggling many projects, finding success and failure, coming to grips at what I can do, what I’m good at, and where there’s room for improvement.
As part of the MusicNOW Festival, two Cincinnati raised artists—Nathlie Provosty and Jessie Henson, created an installation for the Emery Theatre titled, Atlas Points: Between Cincinnati and Brooklyn. Bryce Dessner, founder of the festival, performed a solo piece to welcome the artists and their work. A thorough look at the exhibit is available at ÆQAI.

My yearly tour through the cemetery for the blooms.
Chalked up a good chunk on the pedometer, but didn’t quite hit my goal of 10k.
This lawnmower for sale has nothing to do with the error I made with my online tax form. Luckily the local tax place was able to figure it all out and I ended up back in the black.
