Well, I went down to the farmers market in Madison Saturday and had forgotten how big it was. Yea yea - USA Today says it's one of the best Farmers Markets in America. ANYWAY. I took a bunch of shots and this one is NOT one of my favorites. In fact it's the only one I have looked at so far.
Reason for THIS shot is that it's eleven shots total looking directly into the sun. So what it lacks in quality and wonderfulness just remember it's taken DIRECTLY into the sun.
Interesting how the deep shade has the green grass.
I'll have more hopefully in the future! or not - who knows!
Looking forward to next weekend. A ton of stuff going on in Columbus, I wish the newspaper would have had a schedule of when everything was happening. THAT would have been helpful for the citizens of Columbus.
I see that The Cage got their wrist slapped by the police chief and the City Council wrung their hands on what to do with The Cage and decided that it was just to much to consider so they put it off to another date. Maybe everybody will forget about the big fight.
DJ and Jenny walked past The Cage on the way to Hydro Street Brewing and were harassed by drunken knucklescrapers.
The National Night Out will be held August 7th at Firemans park but they SHOULD have it on the same street as The Cage. What the hell good does it do to show citizens how save it is if you are in Firemans Park with a whole bunch of police.
BTW - remember that computer dude that stole my computer (and $300). Yea - he's in jail! I don't have my computer though! I never get anything back from the police. Remember when I had my cell phone stolen from my car in the Department of Justice parking lot? I got a call from the police saying they had recovered it but needed it for evidence! So I call a couple months later and . . . it's gone. They could not find it. THANK YOU - JOB WELL DONE!!
Speaking of this weekend, here is a schedule of what "I" want to see and thank you to whoever created the website Columbus Horse and Carriage Festival
Saturday - All day - period encampments for the reenactors - behind Columbus High School adjacent to Fireman's Park - OH - be ready to have your picture taken.
Approximately 11 a.m. - "President Lincoln" arrives at the Amtrak Train station and will be escorted by "Governor Lewis" and the 21st Cavalry to the Fireman's Pavilion - I hear he always took Amtrak.
"President Lincoln" delivers a speech on the veranda of the Fireman's Pavilion - MAN - does anybody know where I can get a media pass for this??? Seriously - this is good photo stuff for Columbus . . . and future Hydro Street wall art.
11:00 a.m. - Debate and round table discussions with Civil War historians and "President Lincoln"- I believe The Cage will be on the docket - Lincoln pro closing The Cage, Lewis, a Republican says keep it open, we need the jobs. Woman should not be out at night anyway.
Approximately 2 p.m. – "President Lincoln" leaves by carriage to inspect the troops
5:00 p.m. – Grand Parade of carriages and reenactors led by "President Lincoln" and "Governor Lewis" begins at the Fireman's Pavilion- Seriously - this is awesome stuff - I HOPE we can do this every year and with MORE reenactors (there are other huge reenactor events this weekend).
During all of this is one of Americas best Horse and Carriage competitions is running both days!
Something in Black and White.
And something totally different - here are some interesting signs from around the world.
OH before I forget - I like how the Republicans are laughing at
Walker when he thinks that a beer and brat party at the Governors
mansion will smooth things over. Sort of like Hitler telling the Jews
to stop thinking about the past, move on, let's look FORWARD, not to
thinking about the past. The past is the past, you can never learn
anything if you keep looking at history, right?
And a shout out to the Columbus Chamber of Commerce for their very very good website. Yea - I'm ticked off that when I buy stuff at a store that belongs to the Cbus Chamber that I'm funding the Republican party but their website is very nice. I guess it's OK for ME to fund the Republicans without a choice but not for the Democrats to be funded by unions. THAT is why walker crushed the unions.
