Font Squirrel

This isn’t really photography related but a few weeks ago I stumbled across Font Squirrel.  They’ve aggregated tons of fonts that are available free for commercial use.  Most of the fonts I’ve looked at are available directly from the Font Squirrel site but there are a few that were only available from a vendor site.  I’ve only snagged four fonts so far but found one that I really like.  I’ve been using Windsong to “sign” my photos.

One of the things I really appreciate about Font Squirrel is the Test Drive feature.  Test Drive allows you to try out a font in your browser before you download and install it only to discover that it doesn’t look quite like you thought it would in practice.

If you’re looking for some new fonts definitely check out this site.

At Least One of Us Still Drives a MINI

When we were browsing Babies “R” Us for our baby registry what seems forever ago this bouncer really caught my eye because it looked just like my MINI. We added it to the registry and were fortunate enough to have someone buy it for Nadia.

Shortly after she was born we realized that the Prius was too small to haul the stroller and well, anything else. That meant that if we wanted to go anywhere we were going to need a bigger vehicle. A few days later I was trading in the MINI for a Hyundai Santa Fe.

Esther and I eventually traded vehicles. The Prius is a great car with all of the amenities but it’s nothing like the MINI. I get envious every time I see one on the road and there are plenty of them around here so it’s pretty much a daily occurrence. I guess for now I’ll just have to live vicariously through her for a while.
