Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
LEXLIB_041231_03.JPG: Located in the Lexington Public Library, this is the "world's largest ceiling clock," which graces the five-story rotunda. There are big Roman numerals for the minutes and hours and little horses indicating the seconds. The horses are based on photographs taken in 1872 by Eadweard Muybridge. He took sequential pictures of a horse running to prove that, yes, in fact all of his feet were in the air at the same time.
LEXLIB_041231_06.JPG: And on the floor is a Foucault Pendulum.
LEXLIB_041231_54.JPG: The frieze depicts the history of the horse in the state. It features various breeds of horses as well as eight Lexington-area jockeys who won the Kentucky Derby.
Wikipedia Description: Lexington Public Library
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
The main location of the Lexington Public Library system is Central Library along East Main Street connected to Park Plaza Apartments in Lexington, Kentucky. Its facade includes rose-colored granite, with large spacious windows facing the street and Phoenix Park. A rotunda in the lobby, the focal point of the building, spans all five floors. Included within the complex is a 144-seat auditorium, meeting rooms and an atrium reading lounge. A cafe and an art gallery are located on the ground floor, and the Friends of the Library book seller is in the basement.
The library currently helps its patrons in many ways. There is a book van to help reach homebound citizens, as well as a Book Buddy program that pairs a homebound adult with another adult willing to pick up library materials for them. Materials are available in multiple languages and multiple formats. The library also subscribes to several databases in a wide subject range. One of the more popular areas for researchers is the Kentucky Room on the reference floor, which houses records of Kentucky census information and Kentucky history, which often aids researchers. It also contains microfilm of the Lexington Herald-Leader, as well as its forerunners, the Lexington Herald and the Lexington Leader, along with some other Kentucky newspapers.
Central Library is complemented by five branches. The largest branch, at 22,000 square feet (2,000 m2), is the Tates Creek branch, located on Walden Drive, just off Tates Creek Rd. It replaced the Lansdowne branch in 2001. The Eagle Creek branch is on North Eagle Creek Dr, near Richmond Rd, and this branch replaced the Eastland branch in 1992. The Beaumont branch on Harrodsburg Rd. replaced the Southside branch in 1997. The oldest existing branch, Northside, was built on Russell Cave Road in 1984, and its opening was further distinguished by the presence of Barbara Bush, then the wife of Vice President Geor ...More...

2004 photos: Equipment this year: I bought two Fujifilm S7000 digital cameras. While they produced excellent images, I found all of the retractable-lens Fuji models had a disturbing tendency to get dust inside the lens. Dark blurs would show up on the images and the camera had to be sent back to the shop in order to get it fixed. I returned one of the cameras when the blurs showed up in the first month. I found myself buying extended warranties on cameras.
Trips this year: (1) Margot and I went off to Scotland for a few days, my first time overseas. (2) I went to Hawaii on business (such a deal!) and extended it, spending a week in Hawaii and another in California. (3) I went to Tennessee to man a booth and extended it to go to my third Fan Fair country music festival.
Number of photos taken this year: 110,000.
