Okay, I'm back now, for good.

I took this photo from the Herald Times website... I actually saw this wreck happen... but didn't have a camera on hand. The roads were very slick and the truck lost control... Fortunately, no one on the bus was hurt! (Nor was the driver!)

With finals over and a whole summer ahead of me, I'll make sure to post daily... sorry about the lack of updates!

Little 500 Week!

Sorry for the lack of updates, but I had some major computer problems these past few days... :(

This week is the beginning of Little 500 week... a bicycle race featured in the film "Breaking Away" which was also filmed here. It's a big deal, and many teachers even cancel classes this week. It's basically a week filled with bikes and partying... and general craziness.

This is my friend Jamie... Joe and I shaved a mohawk for him, and we also shaved around a trace of a bicycle... this is the final result! Didn't turn out too bad!

Spring through the Windows

Snapped this shot while going downstairs and I thought it looked kinda neat. I love how the trees finally have leaves on them... and I love the feeling and brightness of spring through the windows.

Obligatory Sky Photo

Here's a sky shot I took yesterday... The photo doesn't do it justice, it looked much prettier in person! Off to go take some more photos!

I get overly excited by wildlife...

I promise I'll start posting actual famous buildings and whatnot soon so I can really show off the town, but I keep running into nice wildlife moments. This is a pretty in-town area... (Only a few blocks from Indiana University!) Seeing a deer just strolling down one of these fairly busy streets is always exciting for me. While the owner of this house has a fairly nice wooded yard, it's still no place for a deer to be! (Even though where my parents live, they're all over! You figure I'd be over the deer excitement by now...)

This is a gate that leads to a neighbor's sideyard. I think it's really pretty. I wish I had such a nice enclosed yard!

First Street House

This is a house a few blocks away from Indiana University. This is the older part of town, and this is one of my favorite little houses. The whole yard has really nice landscaping, but the bushes that curve up the hill along with the stairs are my favorite part! If you own this house and happen to stumble upon this site... I hope you're okay with this!

Flying Bird

Sometimes I like photographing wildlife out of my window before I leave for class.... It was a pretty day and I caught this bird JUST as it was taking off. I thought it was a neat shot. Robins are so common here. One of my favorite types of bird, the cardinal, is somewhat rare in the area despite being the Indiana state bird. However, there's a nest of them right outside of our office window, which makes me happy. I'll have to snap some shots of them sometime.

Spring! Yearly rebirth, and the birth of this blog.

Our garden has already started blooming! The weather has been incredible these past few days... if you ignore the tornadoes and whatnot...

I'm looking forward to joining the daily photo community!
