Another Color Photo Appears Black and White

When the outdoor world seems black and white and gray but your photograph is in color. Everyone has had enough of the cold, snow, ice and dark. They’re ready for crocuses and daffodils bursting through the earth, looking for light.

I’ve photographed this tree before. I always like how the snow defines the branches.

light and heavy. Two red balls in Ohio.

The snow has melted now and I’m back in the Burgh but thought these two pics illustrated light and heavy.

A Bunch of Bananas Along the Road

Yes, an unexpected bunch of bananas. We were driving down to the swim meet to watch Jack and Maura and my grandson Michael spotted a bunch of bananas in the grass. I said “quick, take a picture of them” and he did.

So Michael is the guest blogger today with the bunch of bananas he spotted and captured with the phone.

The Towers at Ohio State University

The towers.  Abraham Lincoln Tower and Justin S. Morrill Tower, Completed in 1967

When we were driving past the Ohio State U  dorms this morning, on way to the swim meet, Jack asked which one did Steve live in when he was a student? We’re talking decades ago. They are still standing.   I had to ask Steve later.   The answer was freshman year he lived in Morrill Tower.  Now ask me which tower is which. I tried to figure out with the help of a campus map online. But I got pretty turned around. They look identical to me.  Here we are driving by (I was the passenger) after the swim meet. Still undergraduate housing from what I can find online  Steve lived there in the late seventies. A color photo that looks black and white.

 

 

 

Purdue University Choir Sang National Anthem

My six word Saturday. Purdue University Choir Sang National Anthem

My grandson Michael and his teammates got the opportunity to play on the professional basketball court on Friday afternoon. We took a bus from Columbus Ohio to Indianapolis Indiana and the Indiana Pacers and Bankers Life Fieldhouse staff were most welcoming.  Since I don’t have permission to post the Middle and High Schoolers photos online, I am showing the Purdue University Choir singing of the National Anthem before tip-off of the Pro game we watched Friday evening. The Pacers played the Pelicans. (click the bold for game recap)  Marquette grad Wesley Matthews scored 15 of his 24 points in the third quarter.  Very exciting to watch him tie it up and then go ahead after the Pacers lagged behind for the entire first half of the game. Pacers won 126-111.

We got back to Michael’s school about 12:50 AM and it’s almost 2 AM now so I will sign off.
