During the late afternoon I spent an hour or so walking around town with the T2i (mounted with my trusty Canon EF-S 15-85mm lens). Because I’m usually so busy with the day to day I don’t often take the time to just go out and take pictures as a leisure activity. I should definitely do it more often because I had a lot of fun, and got some decent shots. I’ll be posting more from today’s batch, but for now here’s a couple of “impressionistic” images of reflections on the river.
Except for resizing and the usual tiny bit of sharpening, both of these shots are straight from the camera.

It’s my Friday off so in the late afternoon after running some errands I took a detour out into the hills looking for photo ops. At the very top of a ridge I spied this pair of crows basking in the sunlight on a wooden fence. My camera was still bagged up so I had to quickly get it together before the birds took off. Fortunately, they stuck around long enough for me to take a few shots.

It’s Friday, I’m beat and about to head out to a band gig–meaning, I don’t have time to explain why I like this shot. I’m just posting it, so you tell me.

Last night Mags and I hoofed it downtown to see a movie (the Coen brothers “True Grit”–great flick!). I brought my G11 just for some added fun. After the movie we stopped in at the local watering hole and had a pint then walked around town with me click click clicking before hoofing it back to the homestead.
This is the corner of Western and Kentucky on a sleepy Thursday night:
And this one is on the riverfront:

Being in a band means rehearsing in a shared place. Besides sharing a sonic space, there also tends to be props used for shows strewn about the hallway. This was the scene today–a mannequin girl band. Mannequins aren’t really my thing, but I had to take a shot.
