Newseum

Over the weekend, I went to the Newseum here in Washington, DC.  We bought the Groupon ages ago and it was the last weekend to use it.  The Groupon line was impressively long, all day.  But my fascination with “social buying” is best espoused elsewhere.  In any case, the museum was great.  My two favorite exhibits were the temporary Katrina one – obviously a subject close to my heart – and the 9/11 exhibit.  Black and white photos below are reflections from the 9/11 one.  But first, two of my favorite guys:

Stuff I Love: Typography

Okay, first of all – congratulations to Egyptians!!  What an exciting, amazing day!

Now then, typography.  I love typography.  I don’t know what exactly it is, but something about the beautiful combination of words and decoration.  I’ve always been a bit obsessed with typography – ever since I started designing websites in middle school (oh yes, I was that girl).  Dafont continues to be the place to get free fonts for use in your personal projects.  I’m sure I walk on a less-than-personal line here with a business blog and all, but I throw enough worthless personal crap on here that I think I’m still okay.  I’ve got some examples of the awesomeness that is typography below.  Click the text to go that font on Dafont.  Most of them are free for personal use.

Man, I love typography!  And now, back to your scheduled programming.

Florida, the rest

I thought I might do a lot more beach/boardwalk photography while I was at the Naples Grande, but shortly after I finished taking the pictures below, I came down with something of a head cold.  Add this to food poisoning early in January and this horrible tooth that is causing me troubles to seemingly no end, and I have to say it’s been a bad year so far for me, health-wise.  I look forward to my body getting back to normal and acting like I am young because I am!

In the meantime, here are some images from the Ft. Myers’ ArtFest over the weekend.  This is my stepfather with a group of ladies called the Calendar Girls.  They were fun.

Of course I can’t pass up the happy doggy photos.  Check out this awesome little guy in this dude’s arms.
