Demilio Number Seven

Look! I found another Demilio cover this week! In case you haven't spotted this artist before here on the blog, have a gander at these earlier posts. I went ahead and scanned in the whole cover for you, so you can see that you aren't really missing anything else when I only show you the bit by Demilio. They all look pretty much like this one. For the record (and the search engines), this is Edmundo Ros And His Orchestra-Samba! (Richmond B 20032).

Maybe I should put all of the covers up here that I've found, just so you don't have to go clicking through the archives to see these great bits of art. But if you don't follow the link above, you won't learn what little I know about this artist...

September Is Here, Part 1

Here it is the fourth day of September already, and I haven't put up any of the monthly calendar pages yet. I'm so lazy. The shot above is the Florida picture for the month, and shows you a windblown great blue heron. I shot this guy an hour or so before sunset in front of the St. Pete Pier. On the right side of that water you see is the Albert Whitted Airport, which really isn't an important part of the story, I just thought I'd mention it. The shot below, from the Ohio set, is the Peter B. Lewis Building on the campus of Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. It's quite the sight to behold in person. There's very few square corners in the whole thing. I've visited it twice, and I've always been nervous about going inside. The architect, in case it isn't obvious, was perhaps the only architect ever featured in an episode of The Simpsons, Frank Gehry. Well, I suppose they mentioned Frank Lloyd Wright once, but that was strictly a mention.

PS-I signed up for the mailing list they're forming for my 20th high school reunion. Boy, do I feel old.

The First Full Week Of September

Here we go, into September. Pretty soon it will be next year. Anyhow, this week you get a picture of a pelican on a bridge piling. I forget exactly where I shot this one, but it's one of the little Gulf islands down here somewhere. They all start to look the same after a while.
