Okay, I've been sadly negligent in posting things here.  I've been busy setting up my photography blog, so I've been editing things, but once I got things up on the blog I kind of fell over from exhaustion. :p

Anyway... a few of the prompts I've missed...



This is Volo Bog in Northern Illinois.  This may be one of my all time favorite shots I've taken ever.  I don't do a lot of landscapes, but this one was pretty cool.  It's actually one of two that will be going into a contest as a set - this is the second one with wider perspective and a break in the clouds.

Eeep! I lost track of time. I have a couple more Reflections shots to get in.

River again, and glass. )

I don't know quite why, but I've been really brain blocked when it comes to photos lately. (Which, I know, is part of why I'm here! -__^) So tonight, I made myself just start shooting something, and this is what I wound up with.

Reflected Light

I did crop it a bit & boost the saturation -- the orange-y red glow really caught my eye. This is our kitchen light reflected through one of my favorite glasses.

So, timing is everything.  I've lived in the city (Chicago) proper for 10 years, but I'd never really been to Millennium Park.  But a group I belong to had a photo hike scheduled for there today.  Just in time for the end of this appature. :)

Anyway, there's a structure at the entrance to the park that's officially called "Cloud Gate," but not one person I know actually calls it that.  We all call it "The Bean".  It's a big mirrored bean that sucks in photographers from an 18 mile radius, I swear.  I have never seen more cameras in one place since the last time I went to a camera shop.   Most play inside where you can stand on your own head and stuff, but I was having fun taking shots outside.

The Chicago skyline, both in front of and behind me.  (Yes, that little orange and blue blob at the bottom left is your intrepid photographer.)
