I'm leaving town for a couple of days, going to visit my Mom for Thanksgiving. I'll resume posting when I return to Chicago. Speaking of thanks, I'd like to thank you all for reading my blogs. I know there's not a lot of you, but it's fun doing this for knowing that a few people enjoy it.
Here's a couple more photos. All of the photos in today's post were shot in digital infrared last summer in San Francisco's Golden Gate Park.

The contest to help me find inspiration for this blog has now concluded. Congratulations to Pam for her theme "Noise", and Jackie for her theme "Pop culture". These two tied for first place. I'll do a week of posts with each of those themes. Not sure when, but soon.
I liked all of the entries, to be honest. They all seemed interesting. These two seemed to spark ideas the most for me, however.
Jackie and Pam, you each will get a print. I originally said it would be one of the images I post in your theme, but if you want to pick anything I've posted here, go ahead. Let me know when you've chosen, and I'll make your print.

Shot with my toy Holga camera a couple of years ago. At one point this was going to be part of a larger series of Holga photos of playground equipment, but I lost interest.
Keep the ideas coming! After yesterday's post, I've received some good suggestions. Post more if you have them.

A month ago, I posted a photo along with some comments about how I was feeling a little uninspired with this blog. A month has passed, and while somewhat better (helped by avoiding 'pretty' photos), I still feel I need some inspiration. So, I'm asking for help by having a little contest.
Readers of this blog (I know there are several out there) are invited to suggest a theme for me to follow for about a week's worth of posts. The theme can be anything: particular subject matter, locations, photographic techniques, etc. They can be concrete, abstract or metaphorical themes, vague or specific. You can suggest as many different themes as you want. Post them as a comment to this post, or send me an email (look at my profile to send an email).
I'll pick the winning theme or themes. My criteria for judging will be how much I like and am inspired by the theme, and how well I think I can work with it. If I pick your theme, I'll send you a print of your choice from the images I post around it.
Deadline for entering is one week from today, November 14. Send me your theme ideas!
