Still waiting for those Eclipse film images to be developed.  So a “Throw Back” to Art Night out, which I never published because I thought I might do more shooting at a subsequent event.  As things go, I never got back to another Art Night; just a very busy summer……. Here are the most interesting…

Finishing up our walking tour of Ft Collins with the breweries:  Cooper Smith’s and Equinox……   We learned lots of brewing folklore….like copper kettles and tuns bringing good luck.  Of course you can’t see that this is copper, so you’ll have to take my word for it. Equinox had some interesting features. Like their unique…

A week ago we went on an AARP sponsored ‘pub crawl’ and behind the scenes tour in Ft Collins, CO.  We’ve been meaning to go to Ft Collins’ Old Town, but hadn’t made it, although we often drive through on our way to other places.  So when I got the email invitation I decided that…

Today I introduce you to a rather unusual ‘festival’ that we stumbled upon a few years ago:  HearseCon (not for the faint hearted).  We will begin with the Cars, and next week take a closer look at some of the symbols. I will warn you ahead of time that next week may be disturbing for…

It’s getting a little political in here, as we review the best of 3 rolls from the Earth Day March for Science.  As I scientist I was there to defend science, so that’s my perspective.  We need more science not less! The Marchers Remember that Louis Pasteur was not trying to preserve milk.  He was…

Colorado is quickly becoming know for Craft Beers.  There are almost too many breweries.  I just visited a new one yesterday.  But We’ve also discovered another Beer Festival:  Hops and Handrails: Over 65 Breweries and impossible to ample them all.  But we did our best.  Just a few of our favorites: I particularly liked the…

52 Rolls Week 6:52

This week we take a mid-winter walk along Boulder Creek near the Walden Ponds.    Now I need to qualify the use of ‘Walden Ponds” as this is not Thoreau’s famous location, but a series of flooded gravel pits.  Despite their ‘unromantic’ origins, these ponds provide a welcoming habitat for migrating birds.  We’ll visit the ponds…

There will almost surely be constant protesting, and many opportunities to further test the Fuji GA645Zi. I bought this camera to use for ‘on the go’ medium format street photography.  So we went out last weekend to the “Support our Muslim Neighbors” rally in Denver, now openly a Sanctuary City: And A few favorite Signs.…
