I’ve been super busy trying to keep up with midterms and paper grading this week while also mourning the death of my sister-in-law, so obviously no blog posts lately. But I took a few photos yesterday of things encountered as I moved through my Friday, so here they are.
The birds on the rooftop caught my eye because I liked the colors. Plus I thought it was kind of odd that so many gulls were flocking to that railing and facing in the same direction.
The giant snowball in the ice rink at Red Arrow Park is a leftover from a snowstorm Wednesday. On Thursday morning there were a couple inches of snow inside the rink, and it looked as though someone had started to build a snowman before abandoning it. By Friday that snowball just sat there looking rather lonely in a pool of water under the sun. (“I’ll be back again someday” 🙂 )
And the patchwork of filters below happened because I was trying to capture an image of the Grohmann Museum’s atrium staircase in the glass of the elevator shaft, and that reflection just wouldn’t show up on my phone. I tried out several filters, thinking one of them might help, which a few did, but not enough. So I gave up and walked away to go get my stuff from the printer in our main office, which is where I’d been headed in the first place. Then I noticed this image in my hand and realized I’d accidentally left the filter options up and camera on. Liking what I saw, I kept my hand in place to hold onto that oblique angle and took a screenshot.
