Finding Kenyon Barr

I went to a panel discussion about the photography of Kenyon Barr, where curator Anne Delano Steinert discussed her rationale and intent of the exhibit, Jim Damico from the Cincinnati Museum Center gave insight to the entire collection and Nick Swartsell presented some personal works that brought together the collection in a modern context. From […]

Intrigued

I was going to title this post “Weird” but frankly? This is totally more intriguing than weird—a word that gets overused as much as awesome. (Guilty.) Anyway, someone arranged all these flags around piles of leaves and trees in a tiny park in Northside. I think they’re fun. UPDATE: These are part of an installation […]

Kroger sign

The days are busy, cramming in as many projects as possible to close out the year and make room for the holidays. Took a long lunch to pick up a few items at the grocery. Always dug this cube sign of Kroger. And the Amigo logo on this electric scooter cart thing: Also? Magazine sections […]

The Depot

On January 4 of this year, I moved into that building there with all the garage doors in the middle of the photo. We call it The Depot. (Previously, way previously) My friend Tom has been working on its restoration for over two years, and everyday it feels more and more like home and a […]

Joel, soon to be a day older

Joel, far left (in photo, maybe also in spirit), is getting older. So a surprise birthday brunch happened and it was good to give him a hug and snack on coffee cake. In hindsight, I really should have stuffed my pockets with that coffee cake because it was delicious.

Coco and the retail apocalypse

I do worry about the retail apocalypse, though I’m not sure why. I’m all for efficiency, so if we replace these structures with gardens […]

Game day

Friends that used to hang out at the neighborhood bar don’t get out as much because they’re building families and moving just a little farther out of the city to have a yard. But every once in a great while, we gather and break bread, open bottles of wine, and play games and generally laugh […]

Dolls

Avoided “Black Friday” for the most part, which now has no beginning or end—it is simply, All The Time. Stopped in Walmart after dinner to pick up some decongestant and see how the mayhem may have left the store. It was largely in tact, with a few raided bins of devoid merchandise and many more […]
