11.30.10 sharp shooter

-The casing of a bullet I shot from thirty feet to hit a walnut perched on top of a bottle.  If anyone doubts this claim I have witnesses.

11.29.10 growth chart

-I think my mower's blade is crooked.

11.28.10 watch your head

-Even though this bridge is very low it's still hard to believe when the river flooded a few years ago that this sign was almost at the flood level.

11.27.10 urban canyon

-While living in Chicago I took this photo of the Rookery which is considered to be
the oldest standing high-rise in the city.  What once dominated the skyline of 1888 
is now dwarfed by its modern day architectural counterparts.

11.26.10 morning oasis

-I’m standing at the tip of Sandy Cay off the coast of Honduras at 6:00 in the morning.  This is the only place I’ve ever been where I could easily convince myself that I was the only person on the face of the earth.

11.25.10 here comes the sun

-The sun took all morning to finally peek through the trees.

11.24.10 buckyball birthday

-After receiving these seemingly mundane magnetic balls as a gift from Rachel I proceeded to spend the next two hours discovering endless possibilities

11.23.10 borrowed inspiration

-This woodblock painting hangs in our house above my favorite chair, here it is for everyone else to enjoy. 

11.22.10 giant grass

-Every spring we cut this grass down to a stub and I'm always amazed when fall comes
around and it's taller than Rachel and I put together.

11.21.10 morning web

-Rachel snapped this photo with a little point and shoot she carries around in her purse on Friday morning before her kindergarten class arrived.

11.20.10 foggy walk

-Our morning walk on the bike trail was very cool (the scenery and the temperature).  
You can see Rachel leaving me in her dust.

11.19.10 remnant of 1915

-One of the last original surfaces in our house is the hand painted floor in the attic crawl space.  Perhaps at one time this was the playroom or bedroom for very small children who didn't mind cramped quarters.

11.18.10 mark of freedom

-The Freedom Center is certainly a building that gives the riverfront some interest, too bad it will soon have to compete with the rest of the development that's creeping its direction.

11.17.10 moon second take

-With one photo already at night it was only fitting that it should be accompanied by a shot during the day as well.

11.16.10 crazy freezing

-I took this at Washington Park (with Music Hall to my back) two years ago when it was a sweltering minus two degrees.  This was for an architecture proposal otherwise I would have been inside along with every other sane person that day.  

11.15.10 self portrait

-Rachel gave me both cameras involved in this photo  They are essentially the same 
except for seventy years and the lingering question of which lens do you look into?

11.14.10 rewind

-As the days get colder I find myself searching for the seasonal rewind button.  Perhaps this doesn't really apply given our recent weather so revisit this post in about three weeks.

11.13.10 turtle train

My dirty windshield only helped to illustrate that the part of town where Rachel's school is located is gritty... to say the least.

11.12.10 so 1951

-I think our next door neighbor is the only house in Loveland that still boasts an antenna.  Admittedly there are probably others but this is the one I see when I walk outside every day. 

11.11.10 un-unpack the winter clothes

-Even though Apple's weather app can be flaky at times I think it was right on today.

11.10.10 staring contest

-I will admit that this image is creepy but it's also the first time I've gotten a really good look at my own eyeball.  I think I'll take a photo looking up my nose next.

11.09.10 lets go greenish

-So Duke Energy sent me my free pack of fifteen compact fluorescents and told me to immediately pitch all of my incandescents.  When I'm ready for the house to take on the coloring of a walk-in freezer I guess I'll make the switch.  

11.07.10 crisscross

-Somehow all of these trees happened to fall into one another.

11.06.10 mike the plumber

-It may not be pretty but at least water isn't shooting everywhere.  We may actually 
have an up and running water softener if I'm not careful.

11.05.10 calm before the storm

-I ran out into the back yard and snapped this right before the sun disappeared and the sky opened up.

11.04.10 green on green

-What is better than a green lamp to match a green room?...  a green lamp to match a green room for seven dollars at Goodwill.

11.03.10 memory

-Roses from Sharon as we approach three months without our son Ethan.

11.02.10 ball

-It took three years but the Ball jar collection is finally complete.  I have at least one for every fleamarket, antique shop, or thrift store we've been to.

11.01.10 magnificent view

-Without a doubt the best spot to take in the enormity of the Biltmore and the 
grounds.  Notice the ant-sized people.
