Street Construction - Summer 2008

It's Summer and the street construction crews have come out of hibernation. It seems like most of the major roads are under construction.

The traffic slowdowns can be annoying, but they also give you time to enjoy the beautiful Summer skies.

Giant Olympic Swimmer at Mutual of Omaha

Mutual of Omaha installed this 14-story banner to promote the 2008 Olympic Swim Trials and the four-day Swimvitational event. According to a story in the Omaha World-Herald, the banner is 245 feet high and 60 feet wide. So – how many megapixels do you need to make a print that big?

The Olympic trials will be in the 5-year-old, 17,000 seat, Qwest Center Omaha. The Mutual of Omaha Swimvitational is both a shakedown event for the trials and a qualifier and warm-up event for the swimmers.

Sorry about all the clutter in the foreground of the photo. Mutual of Omaha is located on one of the busiest streets in town. I pulled over for a quick shot through the car window.
