Even though I spent most of last weekend huddled over my computer working on the next issue of Style Sample and lamenting the neverending rain (it made me sleeeepyyy), I did manage to get out a bit on Friday evening.
My new Nikkor 55-200 lens was waiting for me when I got home on Friday (woohoo!), so I hit Final Friday with Friendboy and tested it out a bit.
Of course, my first subject was Beau the cat, who cooperated for approximately 12 seconds before going back to sleep. I also took a shot of the fragrant (lavender?) bush that makes the entire block smell lovely.
Beau-bear/Beau-bunny/Buns/etc., the bush that brightens my day
We were walking past the Over the Rhine Chamber of Commerce when chamber president Brian Tiffany invited us in for drinks and a tour. Who could say no to that?
Nice digs and good food at the new OTR Chamber
Colorful abstract art (my favorite kind) on display at the OTR Chamber
We continued on to Main Street to see what was happening there:
There was a neat art demo at Venue 222, where this gentleman showed how he acts as a sort of “medium” for artists with disabilities.
I really wanted to buy something, but I was, um…strongly discouraged.
I could spend hours searching through the records and movies at the new spot that just opened up next to “my office” aka Iris Bookcafe.
On Sunday, I managed to drag myself away from my computer to make a yummy barbecue chicken “pizza” (no pizza crust on hand, so I used flour tortillas) with fresh mozzarella, smoked gouda, and fresh basil.
How was your weekend?
