Presented below is a slice of Toledo downtown. And as the saying goes…”You will do better in Toledo“.
Last evening I got a chance to be over the Maumee river at sunset and luckily I had my camera over my person. So here is the proof that I was there. 🙂
The blue and white vessel at the pier in the foreground is the Sandpiper which is a passenger vessel which has been plying over the Maumee since 1984.
Adorning the middle ground is the Cherry Street Bridge (officially called Martin Luther King, Jr. Bridge). Built in 1914 it is actually a draw bridge; the blue part of the bridge, in the middle left of the photograph, opens up to allow big vessels to pass through.
And finally standing tall (pun intended) in the background is the cable-stayed Veterans’ Glass City Skyway.
Saturday morning I and Samarth were playing in the living room. Suddenly I descried a bird, probably a Brown Thrasher, outside in the yard. A peculiar thing about it was that it was dead still. This piqued my curiosity. I thought probably it is about to peck out an insect or something. So holding my breath I awaited there anticipating action.
Forget about action, there was not even any movement for long time. Suspecting something was amiss I decided to have a “closer look”. I pulled out my camera and zoomed all the way. To my utter dismay I found out that it was not a bird afterall. It was just a bunch of withered leaves which looked like a bird from a distance. 😦
In the recent years there have been a slew of books and movies with titles which begin with ‘The Girl‘. For example, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo, The Girl Who Played With Fire, The Girl From The Train, The Girl On The Train, The Girl Who Farted In the Rat’s Face…(ok, I made up the last one). However, what is not made up is the photograph below. I captured this exposure during the summer of 2016 at one of Perrysburg downtown street festival.
