I had a recent wander through downtown Cleveland (a birthday gift!). For some reason I posted them to my writing blog but not my travel/photography blog. Doobie pointed this out to me last night.
Cleveland is a great city to photograph. It has a little bit of everything. It has old buildings, new buildings, graffiti, history, long uninterrupted views and a bright future. Plus, this town is my town.
BEHOLD, THE ALL-AMERICAN CITY, CLEVELAND ON A COLD AND SNOWY JANUARY DAY.
Auto correct blues
It is time for a small gripe. I just don’t understand auto-correct. This week I was asked some questions about India and the caves I’ve visited. I put together a nice little pictorial of them and posted it to Tumblr. However, for some reason, as I was building the slides, Microsoft thought it should “fix” my wording. Thus, it changed the word “interred” to “interned”. It changed the word “basalt” to “Baltic”. It made some other minor changes.
On some level I don’t mind that Microsoft is trying to give me an assist. That’s generally welcomed. But, it changed legitimate words, being used in the proper context, to words that made no sense. C’mon auto-correct, use your head! I posted this stuff and then later read it. Thanks, Microsoft, for making me look like a fool.
I do enjoy the graffiti in Bloomington. I didn’t have much time to wander around this weekend while on campus (too many things to take care of). But, I did have time to snap this wall after some finepizza at Mother Bear’s Pizza.
I had enough time for a VERY short walk through Paris. I was hoping to go to Saint Chapelle but poor planning nixed that trip (please feel free to make your snide remarks now). However, I was able to go to a winter festival, wander around Notre Dame and get caught in a downpour. Fortunately, I was rewarded with a rainbow on the way back to the hotel.
