Walking Around the Deserted Ithaca College

I went on a lunchtime walk with two friends, Katie and Alan, plus their dog Simon. We met at upper Buttermilk Falls, but were kind of horrified to see how many people were there (and who could tell who were the zombies among them). So we escaped to Ithaca College which was near by and almost completely deserted. Very easy to spot the zombies. We walked around a bit and I took a few pictures. All I had was my wide angle lens, which was good for most things except for pictures of the lake in the distance. Note that all of us were masked, except for Simon.

Update: As documented above, Katie took some pictures too. Some were the same things I was taking a picture of, some were me taking pictures of those things, and some were of other stuff. She let me include a few of her pictures here at the end. Plus, a few pictures from another activity. They're the bottom 2 sections.

The Making Of...

These are picture Katie took. I was using my 8 year old Nikon D-7000 DSLR camera with a decent wide angle lens. She was using her fairly recent cell phone. I think in terms of colors, resolution, sharpness, depth of field range, my camera is decent and approaches hers sometimes, but hers is technically better. As far as arstistic quality, I'll be generous (to me) and say sometimes mine approach hers. I won't claim she's cheating because she is an artist...

Plus Softball

On Sunday June 28th, a few of the frisbee people played a game of socially-distant softball. It's the first time I've played softwball in at least 30-35 years and I always sucked. Also, it was the first significant running I did in 3.5 months (the same with all of us). And it's a different kind of running that ulimate. Everyone was sore afterwards. It was low-key and actually kind of fun. Lots of hand sanitizing.

I hit the ball a few times and even got on base my last time.
