It was a two hour wait to get into the Shedd Aquarium yesterday with William so I bought a one year pass as the line was much shorter. The result? This blog is going to get some fishy pictures. Focus is tough in these low light conditions but I kinda like the lucky pose I got from these three Seahorses.
Can't help myself but to post a shot of our Valedictorian of Columbia College, Chicago for the class of 2013. She did it without skipping a beat. Straight A's since, well birth. Clio has a lot to live up to, but I am sure they both have great things ahead of them. Congrats, Stephi. This shot is from last fall, but I love both of their expressions.
Cherry Trees are supposed to be starting to bloom in Washington DC but with the snow this week, the weather isn't ready yet. This is a shot of some white colored cherry blossoms from a few years ago in Dallas.
Running out of flower shots but it is supposed to be more seasonally warmer this week with temps in the high 40's at least. These are Black-Eyed Susan's from my trip to Mount Washington, New Hampshire back in the fall of 2011.
I had to do a double take when I stepped out of the car in Fort Worth as this building is a carbon copy of the Nuveen building in Chicago. Either way, nice reflections of the surrounding buildings just outside the business district in Fort Worth.
Some beautiful buildings in the Century City area of LA. This shot is from outside and through an office building to the distant hills beyond other buildings across the courtyard. Confusing view--which is why I like it.
A wonderful strange look to this picture, almost a cartoon feel to it. Hard to get a good shot of a downtown view of most cities. This is from an office building outside the downtown area. Mostly, these nice downtown shots are found on expressways coming into a city. Lucky to get a view like this from a stable, safe platform.
Normally, this is a walking path through the trees near my home in Naperville. The melting snow, warmer weather and rain all combined for a spooky/foggy and soggy path, overrun by the nearby creek. Great for pictures. Not so great for walking.
Since Pope voting begins next week, I thought I would post this shot from 2006 of the Pope's bedroom window, which I was told is the second from the right on the top floor. I think he (and, of course, it has to be a "he" in an ossified community like the Catholic Church) will first be seen waving out of that window. A pope can do lots of good, even for us non-believers. Let's hope they pick a good one.
One of my photography websites gives a daily suggestion for those doing a 365, or one shot per day for a full year. Today's suggestion is for titled "Something I love", so I figured that I would take a shot of my Bloomberg screens at work as the markets both drive me crazy and keep me sane, at the same time. Gotta love it.
