What I Saw Today (August 8, 2010)

(Click on each pic.)

I thought this balloon was descending
a few blocks beyond this house.

But I found it hovering over the river.
That's it for the balloon pictures,
at least for this one,
unless it lands in my backyard.
I see this thing everywhere.

White cat (3rd & Poplar)

This might be it for the bird pics, too,
unless I can get a close-up of that hawk
I see now and again.  Anyway,
these are mourning doves I saw 
near the CHS stadium.

Pole dance

Protest against corporate personhood.
The guy facing the camera told me
the group was planning a 20-mile walk,
a leg at a time.  (No pun intended.)

Incident on the 400 block of 
Union Street (about 4:20 p.m.)

Incident over - I have no idea
what it was about, but there were
four police cars at the scene.
The cops didn't seem too upset.

The following four photos are of
the baptism that took place at 
River Park this afternoon . . .

Someone didn't get the message.
The ramp was CLOSED, but
this kayaker came ashore there

Next . . .

About to take the plunge


I guess I had another bird picture after all.


Lightning rod atop a house
across from Rotary Park.

Where the ceiling meets the floor

The Daily Grind before the start of
the daily grind

The State Theater

Ionic column

Time to call the carpenter

Distress - or is it another type of message?

It was so early even Saint Francis
wasn't awake yet.

There's no such thing as a free lunch,
but there is a free breakfast.

Signs of the times

Morning reverie


On the line

It doesn't look as good in the naked light
of day.

Looking up Locust Street

This used to be Penney's.
Before that, Watt & Shand.

The old Philadelphia Shoe Store

See?  I told you.

Brazen beer bottle breaking - 
Right outside police headquarters

He must be pretty tall.
