A Slow Sunday
Today was a work day around the house. I ran some errands to a local Home Depot to pick up a few tools to try and replace an air conditioner that is literally built into a lower wall of the back extension. An air conditioner that's completely busted. It's a project that's taking a lot longer than I anticipated. So much for a movie and some riding around photographing. In the end the oldest, my wife and I congregated at a local Olive Garden next to Millenia Mall for an early evening meal. We weren't up for anything special so we made a meal out of soup, salad and breadsticks.
On the way out I spotted the former Robb and Stucky store that had closed down March of last year. The property is prime real estate right on the corner of Conroy and Millenia Blvd, directly across from Millenia Mall. Whoever purchased the property is in the process of demolishing the store. I' not surprised, as the store was very specific to Robb and Stucky's method of displaying and selling expensive furniture for expensive homes. It would have been difficult reusing the layout. It will be interesting to see what rises over this site. It wouldn't surprise me if it isn't turned into a gas station.
I'm still playing with the E-PL1. Give it the right kind of lens and the E-PL1 can produce some richly detailed photographs. I still marvel over the price it dropped to. The Olympus E-PL1 is destined to become a classic along the same lines as the E-500.
