#321 Hair-Loom Ithaca

I like to take photos of storefronts. Here in Ithaca we have a few companies with interesting names and/or decorations. See for example yesterdays photo of Ithaca Stove Works or the nice windows of The Mate Factory in Ithaca Daily Picture #308. Today I have a shot of a side street business "store front" which I like for its creative name: Hairloom.

#320 Prison?

Is it a prison? No. It's just the pedestrion bridge over Six Mile Creek. Does anyone use this bridge? It surely cost quite a bit to build but whenever I am there, no one uses it.

#319 Ithaca Stove Works

I do find it funny that the stove and furnace company is right next to the bakery (and basically shares a parking lot with them). Who might have build the baking ovens in the bakery?

#318 505

No 505. Where is it? Hint: It's a big German supermarket chain which, in the US, has the reputation of being terribly cheap and low quality.

#317 Under the Bridge

Under the bridge. Taken while having a picnic on a hike all the way up (through the Bear Trail and around the reservoir) on Buttermilk Falls.

#315 Ithaca Police SWAT Team

Cut out of the local police report. I got really excited reading "The Ithaca Police SWAT Team ..." thinking the Ithaca Police did actually have something to do but then I read the rest. Haha.

#313 No Wading @ Buttermilk Falls

I'll buy you a beer if you manage to wade in/on/down this waterfall.

#312 Fab@Home

Fab@Home ist a pretty cool project born up in Cornell (disclaimer: in the lab I am working in). If you have never heard of 3D printing, better go to Wikipedia and do so before reading on. Fab@Home is a 3D printer which you can build for your own pleasures at home. As opposed to the very steep price tag on commercial printers (five to six digits, without any decimal point in between) this one will "only" set you back a mere $,1500. You download the instructions for free from the website, order all the parts and assemble it yourself. Thanks to Model 2 this should be fairly easy and involves hardly any wiring. And once you have it put together you can use it to print bricks, cheese sculptures, boring plastic parts, fully function telegraphs and also chocolate.

#310 Cornell Law School

Very impressive structure. One might overlook the tiny details... such as the gutter going down close to the lower window.

#309 Restaurant

Restaurant: Is it true that Ithaca is the city in the USA with the highest ratio of restaurants/population?

#308 The Mate Factor

Not been in there yet but the exterior of this place on the Ithaca Commons is pretty nice.

#306 Gladly Serving You

Chalkboards are ubiquos in Ithaca's restaurants. Not something we Europeans are used to.

#304 Stone Circles in Newman Arboreum

These stones are very neatly placed in a circle and on two of them a small plant is growing. Fascinating. And the symbolism is quite straight forward, even in the most sparse environment life is forcing its way.

The ensemble was donated in remembrance of Holocaust (and its survivors).

#303 Stream of opportunities

The final part of our little educational series about the Cornell Hydraulics Lab. Why three parts? Well, because there are only three of these information signs...

Part two point five in our little educational series about the Cornell Hydraulics Lab.

See here and here for previous parts.

#301 Hydraullic laboratory

Oops, I forgot that yesterday was supposed to mark the start of our little eductaional series about the Hydraulics Lab. So let this be number one of the three educational posts. Copyright of the plaque presumably lies with Cornell University.

#299 Cornell Hydraulic Lab

Let's do a little series of educational posts here on Ithaca Daily Photo. This is the Cornell Hydraulics Lab, most of which collapsed right into the little point below - the Cornell Sun reported. (The educational part comes over the next three days)

#298 Taughannock Falls from Above

So we are back to Ithaca from the little photo detour we took up to Sodus Point where we went for a day trip. This is a photo taken in the morning on our way up to Lake Ontario. These are Taughannock Falls just a few miles out of Ithaca. We wrote about them a few times before including here and here.

#296 Lighthouse Mailbox

A nice change from the Pennysaver Mailboxes that seem to be ubiquous up there in Wayne Country: A Lighthouse Mailbox. Due to peer pressure the Pennysaver box is still behind there.

I am still not sure if I get this joke in its entirity.

#293 Your name on a street sign

Maybe this is a common thing over here but it was new to me: Up in Sodus Point the street sign does not only state the name of the street but also who lives in this street (the family names are arranged in the order of the houses).

#292 Abe's Tackle Box

We did a day trip up to Lake Ontario today. Despite not strictly Ithaca-Photos we will show you some of them over the next few days.
