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.

Update 2: As documented above, Alan took some pictures too. And this included a picture Alan took of Katie taking a picture of me taking a picture of the thisle and bumblebee. a few pictures from another activity. So I have added Yet Another Section titled The Making Of The Making Of which contains just one newly unearthed picture.
As far as I know, Simon the dog did not have a camera nor did he take any pictures. At least none that he admits.

This section includes the pictures I took while we were walking around IC.
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...
Yes, a picture of a picture of a picture, I think... So for the pedantic, this is the making of 013, which itself is the making of 005 and 006.
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
I hit the ball a few times and even got on base my last time.
