Another busy weekend, although it certainly had fewer subplots than the last one.
Friday, instead of our usual trip to the grocery store to taste wine, a group of us went downtown to Fountain Square for the kick-off of Midpoint Music Festival's indie concert series. The main act? Camera Obscura! The rain held off, and the weather was beautiful - perfect for
this lively and quiet band from Scotland.
The concert ended with an encore of one of my favorites of theirs, "Let's Get Out of This Country." Below is the video I took with my phone - you can find some great footage of their music with far better sound quality, but it wouldn't be nearly as authentic, eh?
Last night, a good friend of mine visited the city. I always enjoy showing off the best parts of Cincinnati (which, ironically, often include trips across the river to Northern Kentucky).
I hate posing for pictures, but my awesome red peep-toe wedges don't mind at all.
This one is called "Cincy's Arches"
Here, my foot is posing alongside one of Shepard Fairey's murals (he of the Obama "Hope" poster fame).
