Summer around town

I had to run errands after I dropped the girls at Art Camp, and I kept my camera out because I wanted some pictures on a beautiful summer afternoon.

These are categorical, not chronological.  Fortunately, I only cross the main street going to the Art Academy.  There are more bicycles, tourists and cars than roads and sidewalks to contain them.

I went to a gallery in town, Elements Gallery.  It's Steve and Deb Bures' gallery, widely known porcelain artists.


I like the lamp standard in the lot behind the gallery.

I had to drop books at the library, and knew I wanted a picture of their sidewalk lamps.  This is the only straight one.  I hope they can fund repairs on the rest.

Then, I wanted the lamps at the Village Hall on the way home.  Every Christmas the clerks put red cellophane in one and green in the other.

    1. It still is; it's a stop for the Cuyahoga Valley Railroad the hauls people and bicycles around the park all summer. Then it's the Polar Express at Christmas. And Thomas the Tank. It's even been a stop for The Little Train that Could.

  2. Joanne, I love the lamp on the stump. I like to see lamps or house lights...to see all the different types. Enjoy your weekend, Susie

  3. I really like the squashed-in white building and the steps leading up to it. If you could spare some sunshine we'd be grateful..

    1. We certainly have a lot lately. Well, it should be drifting across the Atlantic any time, now.

  4. Just catching up a little... love the lady you photographed with the sunflower. You are inspiring me to take some shots of my little town. It looks so pretty where you are.

    And glad you found a good chair. I know how important that is with a bad neck/spine.

    By the way, Joanne, you had me in near tears today at work when I saw your donation. You are a darling, you really, really are. Thanks so much.
