Train Station Manager's Office

A cluttered office impossibly tidy as a representation of a ticket taker's office shown in the Monon Train museum. Wish my office was as clean.

William the Soccer Player

William is sure getting taller. Fast too, as he runs back to his defensive position.

Monon Train Museum, Indiana

Who knew there were such things as train museums? A restaurant in Monon, Indiana had one and we did a tour. Very colorful which, hopefully, makes for a nice shot of the day.

The "Proposal Booth", Martin's of Georgetown

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.

Good job if you can get it

Hermosa Beach at 7 am. Nice work if you can get it.

Pretty in Naperville Pink

Sometimes you don't have to travel far to find color. From the deck in the backyard in Naperville.

LA Windows

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.

Wisconsin Yellow

Looks like the Soybeans are done. That's a lot of yellow.

Green Bay Johnny Blood

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.

Rensselaer Color Splash

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.

Lonely Volleyballs

The take their volleyballing very seriously in Hermosa Beach. You just don't come with one ball to hit around. You come with balls---and lots of them.

Hermosa Beach Sunwatchers

Hard not to stop what you are doing when there is a beautiful sunset to watch. That is what happens most evenings in Hermosa Beach.

Davern's Bikers

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.

Men Who Rock

These guitarists for the band Sin After Sin know how to rock. Amazing talent. The band frequently appears at Davern's Tavern, my brother's bar.

Chicago Landing

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.

Myrtle Ferris Wheel

All the resort cities have to have their own Ferris Wheel. Nothing wrong with that. This one is on Myrtle Beach.

Gettysburg Sunset

Heading back from the Gettysburg Battlefield and caught this beautiful sunset over a farmer's field.

Valentine Nebraska billboard

I thought the truck matched the car pretty well. From downtown Valentine, Nebraska.

Yellow Daisy Fields in Nebraska

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.

Two Surfers in Hermosa

Two surfers call it a day in Hermosa Beach.

DuPage River Downtown Naperville

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....

Jackson, Mississippi State House

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.
