I recently photographed the raising of the new 20 foot cross at St. Paul's new church in Westerville. It was an interesting event and seeing the turn out of parishners and the dedication of the Corna Kokosing Construction workers who installed the cross on a Sunday was great.
I've never seen a cross installed before but the event pretty much goes as you would probably expect. A blessing, a raising, setting in place and then everyone goes their own way.
The crowd clapped as the cross was set into place with workers turning it into its final position.
The new church will replace another church just east of it.
If only we could have smell-o-vision. The gardens smelled wonderful from the different fragrances of the roses in the Whetstone Park of Roses during the Stop and Smell the Roses event. I submitted most of these photos for publication for use at ThisWeekNews.com.
I enjoy taking photos of nature so getting a chance to take some photos of the gardens at the Park of Roses at Whestone Park for work was wonderful. The weather radar showed rain was going to be moving into the area a few hours after the event started but quite a few people still showed up. Thankfully the rain started out as a very light mist which gave the flowers a bit of wetness like you would see with the morning dew.
Here is a tip for taking photos of flowers. A cloudy day and a bit of mist can really help you see the flowers better and make the photographs more interesting to look at. Bright sunlight tends to increase the contrast of light on the flowers and it is harder to get detail in the areas that fall into shadow.
The volunteer gardeners really do a nice job in keeping the rose gardens at there best.

The RPCubes packaging felt more like something you'd find at any general big box merchandise store or maybe your local photo store. It didn't feel like it was a special item. It felt like an accesory instead of special item that allows you to do something special. A manual isn't even included but then again an RPCube is only going to be used by people with other RadioPopper items so maybe that isn't a neccesity.
