You have your Friday cat and squid bloggers out there, could I be a Friday photo blogger?
Update 17 Nov 2006: It may have been kind of a tease to advertise a stone arch bridge but not show more of the arches. I’ve added a few more of the bridge…
Out of curiosity, I checked Google:
- “friday cat blogging” = 286,000 results
- “friday squid blogging” = 28,300 results
- “friday photo blogging” = 102 results
Friday cat blogging is easy to understand once you’ve seen it in action, but let’s see what Wikipedia has to say:
(traditionally “Friday catblogging”) is the practice of posting pictures of cats, in typical cat postures and expressions, on a blog. Sometimes a comment on the cat or the situation shown is provided. Cats had been on web pages already, but “catblogging” as a distinct and defined practice originated on Calpundit.com, by Kevin Drum. He also established Friday as the canonical catblogging day.
“The canonical catblogging day.” I love it.
What’s the zeitgeist on the whole Friday [something] blogging thing? Still fun? Played out? Like, totally passé don’t-you-know? I have some concern if only that I don’t want to have a repeat of my parachute pants phase of seventh grade (early 80s) and latch on to a fad that doesn’t wear well. But really, I’m not that concerned, even if my thoughts regularly suggest otherwise.
Anyway. Here are a couple of pictures I took downtown a few weeks ago with my Olympus two-megapixel camera. The pictures link to 1600×1200 versions that you might enjoy as wallpaper or for other uses, and please feel free to make use of them under the Creative Commons Attribution-ShareAlike 2.5 license.
And here is a picture of the mill ruins, taken through one of the stone arches:
What do you think? Would you like to see more or less pictures on movingtofreedom.org? Or is the current picturousnous acceptable?
Updated 17 Nov 2006: Let’s see more of the arches!
In the first two, you can see the Pillsbury “A” Mill and grain elevators behind the bridge:
Here is Mill Ruins Park next to the bridge:
