We went for a walk in Spring Grove Cemetary yesterday. The afternoon was a little chilly and overcast, and we probably missed the height of the Spring display by about a week, but it was still beautiful. As it turned out, we parked our car, very much by accident, by the grave of Nancy Shapiro, whom I met when we worked together on the Gene McCarthy campaign and who became a much loved friend. She died far too young, and we miss her still.
Here’s a selection of photos from our walk:
Here are a few pix I’ve taken on my walk home from the Coffee Emporium the past few mornings. It’s been a particularly glorious Spring in Cincinnati. If you’d like one of these images for your desktop wallpaper, just click on it, and the image will load at original size from my Flickr site; you can then save it to your hard drive.
I’ve added a couple of photos to my Flickr Desktop Set. We went walking in Glenwood Gardens last weekend, and the thistles, illuminated by the afternoon sun, were quite wonderful. Here’s one of the photos. The other has fewer thistles, more green; probably better for a desktop with lots of icons. You can download any photo and use it freely.
I’ve posted a number of recent (and a few not-so-recent) photos on Flickr, in a set called “Desktops”. Feel free to browse the set and download anything that appeals to you; all of the photos are available full size, which should do an adequate job of displaying on a desktop on most systems.
To use any photo, click on the photo, or go directly to the photoset to see all of them. When you’re at a photo that you want to download, click the “All Sizes” button above the photo; then choose “Original Size” and download.
All of the photos are released under the Creative Commons “share-alike” license. You’re free to use them for any non-commercial purpose and to redistribute them at no charge, to make any changes you want to make and to redistribute the changed images, providing that you redistribute them under the same free license. Oh, and you should give me credit for creating the original.
If you use any of these and like them, please drop me a note.
