Laumeier Sculpture Park


Last Sunday, I went with my roomie Katie to Laumeier Sculpture Park so that she could get some shots for her photography assignment. It’s been a few years since I’ve been there and they’ve added some things since then, so I took a few photos as well!

I didn’t remember this cat from the last time I went, so I was delighted to see it!

Then there was this thing off in the distance…





It’s a pretty neat place to visit and I would definitely recommend checking it out. Katie took a lot more (and better) photos, so go check out her blog!

Phantom Phriday Vol. 11


This week’s Phantom Phriday is cutting it a little close to being out of Friday, so here’s a quick post featuring Aya and Rio!

Aya is really starting to take after Rio. She copies Rio if she sees her doing something, like flopping over like this.


She’s also started to bring Rio toys that Rio loves playing with (milk rings and brightly coloured strings), which makes her look more like Rio’s servant. I’m sure Rio thinks of her as that anyway, haha.


I took some footage of the two playing around, so enjoy and happy Friday! (what’s left of it anyway..!)

Manchester Homecoming


This weekend in my town is Manchester Homecoming, a parade and fair-type festival. It’s not really my kind of thing and I’ve only been to it once or twice since I’ve lived here, but I’ve always liked walking or driving by to see the Ferris wheel at night.

This year, since we were close to the park it’s located in, the roomie and I decided to set up our cameras to take long exposures. Hers came out great, but mine were so-so. Of course, she’s using an app remote for hers (cheater!) and I’m using slightly unsteady and freezing hands. I think it turned out pretty neat anyway. I’ll link to Katie’s once she posts them.

Unrelated to the above, it’s freezing outside and I love it!

Phantom Phriday Vol. 10


Long time no Phantom, but better late than never! It’s taken me a while to get back into posting these, but I’ll do my best to have them ready each week.

This week has a special guest — Phantom’s new housemate, Aya!


Isn’t she cute? Aya is about 4 months old and she’s been living with us since last week. She settled in very quickly and gets along well with the other three, especially Rio.

Since I haven’t gotten around to taking a good picture of her, I’m going to link to Katie’s post of pictures she’s taken. Just click on Phantom at the bottom!

Happy Friday!
