From 2010 Blog
- More from my trip to the Rock n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland, Ohio last month. These neon signs are just to the left of the performance stage on the entry level. A late afternoon thunderstorm helped by darkening the skies over Lake Erie seen through the glass in the background. Canon G11, 1/8 sec @ f/8.0, ISO 400.

Trash Rock

From Rock n Roll HOF
- A self portrait taken last week at the Rock 'n Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland. That's me to left with the Hall's ceiling and gift shop reflected in the chrome dome trash can cover. Canon G11, 1/800 sec @ f/4.5, ISO 400. The Hall's no photography policy in the exhibits left me a little cold.

From Cleveland
- A giant rubber stamp at Cleveland's Willard Park. When I first started my career in government many years ago rubber stamps were commonplace. Massive multi-tiered rubber stamp trees held the tools of bureaucracy on any self respecting bureaucrat's disk. I suspect most kids today have never seen one. It is appropriate that this massive stamp is right next door to Cleveland's City Hall. Canon G11, 1/400 sec @ f/4.0, ISO 200.
