Terminal Tower through a Skylight

Terminal town through a Skylight

It has been awhile since I went to Tower City for lunch. The food court makes it easy to select from several types of food. I have walked through there more times in the 2.25 years I have worked downtown.

In all of that time, I never realized that you could see the Terminal Tower through the skylight. I did realize there was a skylight. It makes a cold winter day not feel as brutal when there is a little bit of sun.

I thought it was a pretty incredible view.

Ironically, I posted a photo of a reflection of the Terminal Tower at about the same time last year.

The Beauty of Autumn

This weekend, I traveled to Oglebay Park in West Virginia for their annual OglebayFest. It is a craft fair, county fair and Oktoberfest all rolled into one.

The lodge itself is nestled in hills of West Virginia near Wheeling. The drive there was beautiful, but the location itself was incredible. It was the perfect time of year to enjoy the fall colors.

This tree was one of the first to really turn and leaped out of the landscape.

The Last Summer Sky in Ohio

The Last Summer Sky in Ohio

On the way to Oglebay in West Virginia, I was driving down US 77 through Ohio. The wind was really kicking up and the sky was so amazing, I snapped this photo with my cell phone.

Ironically, I thought this was the last time the trees would be green before the encroaching fall took over. When I sent this to TwitPic, I titled it the Last Summer Sky in Ohio.

Ironically, there is a construction sign in the bottom left corner - definitely a sign of summer in Ohio.
