Shadow of Carter Road Bridge on Cuyahoga

Shadow of Carter Road Bridge on CuyahogaLast year, I had part of a tree fall on my garage during a wicked wind storm that took out some other trees in the neighborhood. So this morning, I had to take photos of my repaired garage and send them to the insurance company.

While I was downloading the pictures, I realized I had forgotten that I had taken this photo from the Carter Road bridge when I was walking home last Friday. The impression of the bridge shadow was really strong on the river. I had never really seen it like that before. It kind of took me by surprise.

Luckily, I had my camera and was able to get this shot. I love how the Cuyahoga water actually looks blue in some spots because of the shadows.

Panoramic View of Friedlander

Panoramic Photo of the Friedlander Photo Exhibit

In my opinion, there are two great things to do on a rainy Sunday afternoon: 1) sit around with your friend and drink beer or 2) go to the museum.

Since I am currently in a dry spell, I decided to go to Friedlander photo exhibit at the Cleveland Museum of Art.

It was a great exhibit and it was Free. Definitely factors that contributed to my enjoyment. I have to give credit to the curator of the exhibit because the layout of the exhibit was very compelling. I felt like I wanted to soon from sensory impact as soon as I walked into the exhibit.

Even better was this incredible wave of photos that was along the back wall of the exhibit. It was a style that I had never seen before in a museum. I was very excited that my cell phone has a panoramic setting to take photos.

I would highly recommend this exhibit not only because Friedlander is a great photographer or that it is massive, he is a very approachable photographer and exhibits that 'perfection' is not always the most interesting way to make a photograph.

April Showers in Cleveland

I thought the saying went "April Showers bring May Flowers" - but I don't think they were talking about snow showers.

It is enough to make you stay inside and drink another pint of Guinness.

Dick's Hamburgers - A Seattle Institution

During my trip to Seattle, I had spotted this joint right away as we were driving through the neighborhood where we were staying. On the way back to the hotel after the wedding we attended, my dad and cousin and I stopped for some hamburgers.

Apparently, Dick's is a Seattle institution. Known for its milk shakes and quick service. It was super speedy and hit the spot at the end of the night.
