Last fall, I went to the Gymnastics Allstars event held at the Quicken Arena in Cleveland. Most of the athletes that participated in the 2008 Summer Olympics performed some mediocre routines with crappy teen-rock playing in the background and strobe lights flashing. I wouldn’t recommend wasting your time or money on an event like this unless you’re a 10 year-old girl.
Anyway, the one cool part, I thought, was when a few little girls performed a floor routine. On the right, you can just make one out doing a blurry cartwheel.
The 420-ft of towering steel making up the Top Thrill Dragster across just a small portion of Lake Erie appears less massive than the aluminum of a 12-oz can of cola.
This is one of the first shots I took with my Canon PowerShot. It was exciting to see the vividness of the colors in this unedited photography when I first viewed it. The picture was taken of my house and grandfather’s barn across an alfalfa field in November. The flat terrain reminds me of Ohio, but I assure you, there’s a hill behind me.
Since I’m feeling somewhat destructive, I thought I’d post a sequence depicting what happens when a several hundred pound pumpkin is dropped onto a trailer from 90 ft in the air. You may have to look closely; this was a popular event and I was unable to get as close as I wanted…
