During a trip to Washington DC last summer we stopped at Martin's of Georgetown and sat at the booth where Jack Kennedy proposed to Jackie while a young senator. Not the sharpest focus but a nice shot of Cheryl and me from our waiter.
Patterns and colors always draw my eye. Saw these in downtown LA last week. Had to take a shot. Tough to get all the lines straight when you have the camera angled and while sitting in a car driving by as a passenger. But I like the patterns anyway.
As a Bears fan, you have to approach Green Bay Packer history very carefully. These statutes in downtown Green Bay are tributes to the long history of the team. Halfback Johnny Blood was a star of the game during the depression, cheered on by one of the team's biggest boosters, newspaper man George Calhoun, co-founder of the team with Curly Lambeau.
Stopped in the town square in Rensselaer, Indiana to walk around the Jasper County Fall Festival. As my eye swept the area, this is how the little trinkets actually looked to me. I knew I had to get that splash of color in just the way that I saw it.
I can say that this was an artistic take on a group of bikes parked at Davern's Tavern, my brother's bar. Or, you can this was an overexposed mistake. Either way, I like the look. Maybe it is an acquired taste.
Tough to get a super sharp shot out of an airplane window on a moving plan, but this is a frequent view if you travel a lot. Chicago is such a grid. Always interesting to see the well highlighted angle streets and expressway.
The daisy fields in Nebraska are just overwhelming in their brilliant yellow and green colors. I actually turned the yellow down in the software as it just didn't look real with all the yellow. Fields like this would go on for as far as you can see.
Walking back from the Last Fling last night caught a beautiful reflection of the sky while crossing the DuPage River which runs through downtown Naperville. Almost made spending all that money on carnival games worthwhile....
View of the state capital in Jackson, Mississippi. I have to say that I wasn't much impressed with Jackson. The capital building, which was modeled after the US Capital in Washington, DC was nice, however.
