Taste of Cleveland

Two down, two to go. I work doing ticket sales at a some summer events, this one being the last of the season. 4 days of styley food, ethnic dancers, and rock and roll on the Cuyahoga River. Oh yeah... and 12-14 hour workdays. Some of us have been doing this for 10-15 years and it's always fun to see each other. So here's what I'm up to/into and I'll answer mail on Tuesday...

This is right across from my ticket tent. Where's my fabric and vinegar?? That's one big rusty something-or-other! How many bolts do you suppose it would take...?

These lovely young ladies were performing traditional Japanese dances. So graceful!

The Airshow is also going on, so we get to see a lot of the Blue Angels.

Maybe a thread painting of this scene?

Sunset on the river

I didn't mean to use the flash, but I love the way it turned out...

I am one of those un-enlightened people that ask totally stupid questions, because I can't help myself: Taste of Cleveland? Have you ever met Michael Ruhlman, my secret crush? beautiful and talented. Sorry hormones at work.
Your pictures are amazing! The sunset progress makes me want to visit Cleveland, before winter, of course. And how cool to have dyed water tower textiles to use with your sunset thread paintings...

It's an outdoor music and food fest we have every Labor Day weekend.
I don't know him, but I do know Michael Symon of Lola/Iron chef fame -- does that count? :)

Thank you -- glad you like the pics!
