UCR California Museum of Photography

I had a chance to visit the new California Museum of Photography today. What a beautiful place!

This particular room is dedicated to “the masters”.
Works from Ansel Adam, and an amazing collection of camera history fill the place.

As part of the University of California, Riverside, the museum is more than just a showcase of photo history.
An ongoing array of classes, workshops, events, and a state of the are computer lab are available to both students and public.

Riverside Aquatic Center

RCC will soon be home to a state of the art Aquatic Complex.

It will feature a 65-meter pool, which can be sectioned off to run several activities at the same time; 10-, 7-, 5-, 3- and 1-meter diving boards; and seating for 800. It will be built near the college’s two existing pools, which will continue to be used for training and recreation.

The center will host competitions and serve as a training facility for aquatic teams, whose members will no longer have to drive to Orange County to use a similar facility.

I have been told that one of the center’s biggest boasts will be the construction of a “fast” pool.

So what is a “fast” pool?
Now personally, I don’t know what makes a pool fast, nor did many of the people of whom I have questioned concerning the matter.

If you find yourself losing sleep over this matter, feel free to let me know, and I am sure that I can make up some believable information to sooth your restless nights!

Day95 They Grow So Fast!

Graduation

It seems like only yesterday that I was taking my daughter to her first day of kindergarten.

Has it really been 13 years?

It is that time of year again.
The robes are being donned, as our seniors are filled with a sense of accomplishment (and relief).

For many, this is just the first step in reaching their goals and realizing their futures.

Lucky for me, my daughter won’t be traveling far to further her education (all the way to UCR).

But it still brings tears to the eyes to see “my baby” growing so quickly.
