    Just before sundown, the sky over Columbus was so colorful, I had to snap a few photos.

    That's My World Tuesday; Vintage on High Street

    If you walk High Street in Columbus, you will come across many eclectic shops and stores. One such store is Flower Child. They carry items from the 30's thru the 70's. Since vintage clothing seems to be very popular lately, I guess I should have kept my bell-bottom jeans....

    This is a maple tree in our backyard. As you can see the leaves are turning a beautiful yellow/ red/orange color. Fall has arrived in central Ohio.

    And yes, they're Italian. (From left to right, my husband Nick, Joe and Anthony)

    SkyWatch Friday; More Columbus Moon Shots

    This past Tuesday found me and my Olympus on the deck snapping photos of the moon. I adjusted the metering while shooting in action mode with the flash turned off. The first picture is unaltered. Using the Olympus Master 2 program I adjusted the brightness/contrast on the second shot. The third picture is also unaltered and I manipulated the brightness/contrast on the forth picture.

    My World Tuesday; Buckeye Country!

    Being the only girl in a household full of testosterone, forced my interest in sports. My husband played football, hockey and was a cyclist. Our son participated in little league, wrestling, 14 years of soccer and still plays hockey. Hailing from Cleveland, we’re die-hard Browns, Indians and Cavs fans. Since moving to the Columbus area we’ve found ourselves surrounded by OSU fanatics. And I mean it literally. This town is absolutely crazy for all things Buckeye.
    Even the “Best damn band in the land”…..

    UPDATE: Commenter Barb asked what sports I liked to play. I actually played basketball and softball in high school and until my 2001 back surgery played spring, summer and fall softball for various leagues in our city. And I was a "band geek". Playing the clarinet, french horn and trumpet in the marching and jazz bands in junior and senior high school.
