So I might need to do some reading to increase my knowledge on how to properly identify art. The fabulous, bright yellow, metal sculpture that I photographed with excitement in Ohio was, apparently, a snow plow blade.
I really did not see that coming.
Perhaps I can blame the lack of glasses - I misplaced mine right before my trip. They might have allowed me to read the sign on the building that said 'maintenance'. But it also turned out that I actually had one contact in that I thought had fallen out - from my eye appointment also right before I left. It was supposed to be a daily contact, and I poked myself in the eye a bunch of times trying to get it out and since it was invisible I was just sure it fell out in the shower. But with the one contact in I was actually able to see quite well so possibly I really just wasn't thinking very hard the evening before I left Ohio and found the yellow wonder.
(Honestly I am not entirely sure even the word "maintenance" would have helped my brain solve the mystery.)
But thanks for helping me out.
Saturday I came down with a migraine, so slept much of the afternoon away. However, my kind husband agreed to take me out driving in the evening, and we pulled off at a small lake as we saw the sun setting.
There were pelicans and cranes, but none flew right where I wanted them at the right time. I still got a nice shot of the sunset, despite lack of cooperation from the wild birds.
Here was my first shot right at the start of sunset.
But I felt happy just for being outside and taking photos on such a pretty evening.
