I realized the other day that I never finished editing photos from the 2017 Autumn Cruise held in Upper Sandusky, OH on September 23. Honestly, it was hot as Hell and I just didn’t want to remember that day. Nancy and I rode there form Cleveland, got sunburnt, walked for maybe an hour or two and then bailed. We ate some food (it was tasty), stuck to the shadows and I shot 54 photos—many of those being alternate angles of shots I post here. It was a beautiful day for the show, just not the best day for the show. Overall too hot and sunny to be standing under a clear sky on concrete. Regardless, we showed up, saw some cool shit and here is the proof.
I’m back with a few more photos from the recent Upper Sandusky Autumn Cruise that was held on September 24. There’s some good stuff in this collection. Shiny paint, bright chrome and colors abound. There’s even a bit of the Halloween spirit mixed in there. Check it out!
Vinyl Wednesday comes back at you without much commentary this week. The choice for this week: As I Lay Dying’s 2012 album “Awakened”. Artwork was handled by metastazis and Tiffanie Uldry. It’s got a real killer Art Nouveau look to it all. I very much dig this. Naners and I are both huge fans of Alphonse Mucha and the whole artistic movement so this is definitely an album I wanted in my collection.
As I said before, this week won’t have much commentary so hit the jump and dig deep into the images. Check out all the killer illustrations and amazing typography within this beast.
I took some time yesterday evening to create a new background image for my computer. I wanted to use the coyote skull that Nancy got me in a different way than my previous attempts. This time I placed it on a white background and hit it from both sides with flashes. Simple lighting, simple results. It’s not all that I hoped for but it’s close enough for what I need. Hit the jump to see two more samples.
While Ed was locked away in the bedroom, working hard (interruptions frowned upon), I ended up getting a lot done on my own. After a trip to the store, I pulled out the sewing machine to work on a project that was long overdue. Hopefully I’ll wrap that up next weekend. With my main project as far as it could get without another store visit, I also managed to fix a pair of awkwardly fitting jeans. Score!
I also desperately need to finish some knitting that Ed has been bugging me about for over a year, so I started that back up again. I’m a horrible girlfriend. Beyond that we managed to make lasagna for the first time, which made us feel like real adults. I’m super excited to have some hiding away in the freezer for another night on top of the large portions we ate Saturday and Sunday night. Sadly, even after a successful afternoon of weekday lunch cooking, I never feel prepared to go back to work Monday morning. I can still think of a dozen things to get done around here instead.
