I'm Back!

I returned home from my Mom's house this afternoon. Been busily cleaning my studio all evening, and haven't even looked at the photos I shot while I was there. Here's one taken in Toronto last summer with the pinhole attachment for my digital camera..

Happy, Happy

I'm off to spend the holidays with family. I'll return to this blog in a few days. Hope you have a good whatever it is you celebrate, even if you don't celebrate anything.

Winter In Chicago

I'm not a fan of winter, and I'm really not a fan of winter in Chicago. It's not the weather, which is pretty much the same as in Michigan where I grew up. Winter in Chicago is actually sunnier than in winter in Michigan, which is a good thing. What I don't like is that Chicago is at the eastern edge of the central time zone, so that during the winter, it's dark by 4:30 pm. I really hate that.
That said, the city can be really pretty this time of the year. I shot this photo yesterday (around 4:45 pm) while out holiday shopping.

Here's a plant. I think this was shot in Oregon, somewhere in the Mt. Hood area.

The End

Tomorrow, I'll teach my last class of the semester. Exams are next week, then I'm done until mid-January.  None of that has any relation to this photo of Toronto, taken from the turret of Casa Loma.

Cold Spell

A cold spell is supposedly headed to Chicago. I suppose it's inevitable.

Very busy, but the end of the semester is in sight. Plans for break include getting to work on the two winning themes I picked for the mini contest a couple of weeks ago. Watch for those soon.
