I am currently on fall break, enjoying a bit of lovely time amongst the fall foliage of Bloomington. Because of this pleasant bout of free time, I have two blog posts planned (after one post the whole month of September! I know, right?).

This first post is simply a recap of the three assignments I did this weekend for the Star. Two of them (of the Key to the Cure event at Saks Fifth Avenue and Beer Games at GermanFest) appear below; the third, of a new art hub in Fountain Square that reminded me of a lot of small places in Bloomington, simply appears on the Star's website. (Bonus: Check out last year's Key to the Cure photos that I took. I'd argue I did much better this year, largely because I was on a 9 p.m. deadline then as opposed to an 11:30 p.m. deadline this year.)

Tomorrow: The International Space Station!

I rented a 70-200 from BorrowLenses.com for the Super Bowl before I got my own. I liked them; I think you will, too.
