Zsuzsie's Nap Time

Little Zsuzsie spent the weekend hanging out with her much bigger and older cousins for the time. When there is so much going on for a young pup it's hard to get a good nap in.

This is another shot of Silver Yin Zhen Pearls White Tea. This is some good stuff, full of antioxidants and hardly any caffeine.

These hand rolled tea buds are hand rolled and used to be reserved only for Chinese Aristocrats. Now any average joe with a little extra money can purchase these pearl like tea buds at any Tevana  Tea Shop.

Old Barn in Angola, Indiana

We spent the weekend in Angola, Indiana with family. I didn't get much of a chance to shoot since it rained all day Monday but I did get this from Saturday when we walked the dogs up to Zesto's for ice cream.

Japhy Ball 2013

Japhy loves playing ball. It probably ranks up there on his favorites list... probably number 2-right behind sleeping with his Mom. This was taken last Sunday when it was nice and warm out unlike this holiday weekend.

Morning in Ottawa Park #2

This photograph is a few weeks old. It was shot when I was exploring the trails in Ottawa Park. Sometimes all you need is to walk through the woods at daybreak to realign yourself.

Eston's #2

This is another shot from this past Wednesday of Eston's on Monroe Street. 
Abandoned building project. 

Thursday, May 23, 2013


I have started a new photo series that focuses on abandoned buildings in Toledo, which will probably transfer over to Columbus when we move there in a few months. The first of this series was shown a few weeks ago with the photographs of the old cinema on Monroe St. 

This new one was taken yesterday when I finally decided that the rain would probably not come like expected, and I rode my bike down to Rhodes Market for broccoli and carrots for dinner, with intentions of capturing the old Eston's building. The bicycle in the front is great. When I went into the market there were 3 kids out front of Eston's smoking cigarettes on their bikes. When I came out of the market, the kids were gone but a bike was left behind, adding to the feel of abandonment.

Buildings and Clouds

I couldn't resist this shot from Ann Arbor last Wednesday. Perfect day to capture the clouds over top architecture.

Dandelion #2 2013

Every year on a lazy day I end up shooting dandelions. Yesterday was that day and this is one of the images that I got from crawling around and my hands and knees in my back yard with my dog looking at my very strangely.

I found this tree alone up on a hill in a metro park in Ann Arbor. It reminded me of the Beatles song "Fool on a Hill." I am not calling this tree a fool...but the second line is "Alone on a hill. Anyway who knows where thoughts come from....they just appear..especially very early in the morning.

Old Blue Schwinn

Anyone that knows me knows that I love bicycles. Especially well used ones. I found this classic up in Ann Arbor last week.

I finally got the shot I wanted from this Greek Restaurant in Ann Arbor Michigan. For the past year every time I see it it calls out to me to photograph it. I finally did yesterday.

Lake Erie Catawba Island

We met in Port Clinton this year for a lunch of fresh Lake Erie Perch and spaghetti at Phil's Inn for Mother's Day yesterday. Then we drove around reminiscing. It was a little too cold and windy to stay outside for long periods but we made the best of it.

Wildwood Afternoon

This is one of my favorite spots in Wildwood Park. I meditate here sometimes after a long bike ride on longboard ride. Wednesday I chose instead to capture it in an image.

Abandoned Cinemas Part 2

This is another shot of the same cinema from yesterday. Too bad they don't use this building for anything. 

Abandoned Cinemas: Part 1

I have started to photograph these abandon buildings that have closed up and have been sitting unused for quite awhile. I think this one may have been closed for over 10 years. We used to go here to see movies when I was living in the University of Toledo dorms in 1996.

Morning in Ottawa Park #3

This is another shot of Ottawa Park. I am lucky to have so many parks so close to my house in the city. This one is about 5 minutes away.

Morning view of Ottawa Park

Morning view of Ottawa Park through the woods and on the trails. 

thich nhat hanh

I spent 7 hours today riding around town on my bike. I shot this in the afternoon at WildWood Park. The quote is from Thich Nhat Hanh...the great Vietnamese Zen Master.

We got to meet Suzie today for the first time. Japhy's new cousin!
