Bikers heading north on Highway 231 towards Bloomington. This is about three miles north of Loogootee where the previous post caught the two in town. For more weekend reflections, visit the Newtown Area Photo blog which hosts the Weekend Reflections meme.
A couple of bikers passing through Loogootee earlier this week. Caught them in town, in this photo, and then a bit later as they headed north towards Bloominton - see next post. For more remarkable b&w's from around the world, go here to the Weekend in Black and White hosted by Dragonstar..

The guy on the right has just dropped anchor in hopes of reeling in a big one, maybe two. Don't expect it will be too long before he'll be saying Anchor's Aweigh! Question for music lovers and old timers: Do you remember who was in the 1945 film Anchors Aweigh? I just saw a clip of it in one of Michael Feinstein's musical histories. Anchors Aweigh is also the fight song for the US Naval Academy and, of course, a part of the US Navy. More Weekend Reflections at Newtown Area Photo and the Weekend Reflections' meme.

Looks like a Scottish Terrier and a couple of her friends (Kanga and Roo?) maybe out looking for seashells. More b&w's from around the world at Dragonstar's blog here.
Just outside the entrance to the IU campus in Bloomington, these two graduate students, Joanne and Austin, are passing out free hugs every Friday. The young lady told me that the hugging falls off with the cooler weather. Seems to me it should pick up with the cooler weather - but then what do I know. And, if you're wondering, yes, I did get one of the advertized hugs and, yes, she's a very good hugger. So, you doing anything next Friday?
Remember the movie Bus Stop? With Marilyn Monroe? Don't think this young lady is an MM yet though she may be a Norma Jean Baker. Bloomington street scene earlier today. For more marvelous weekend reflections, visit Newtown Area Photo and the Weekend Reflections meme.
