150 Year Phenomena
It was a phenomena that I actually got up in the dark and cold to shoot this....And the quality could have been much better! Forgot my pen light, and my hand warmers. The wind was brutal so it was FREEZING cold at the prairie where I took this. I hope someone here took a better shot than this!!!! But if not...here's what it looked like at 6 something AM.

A second round of January thawing after some deep freeze. Two more months of winter, so enjoy! ;)
Are You Listening, Sweetie?
A cute couple sharing some coffee at a newly opened coffee shop in downtown Naperville. Although most of the time, they had fairly good eye contact during their conversation, you just knew it was a matter of time before one of them whipped out the cell phone.
Sun Kissed Frozen Bubble
The cold made me do it..... Sunday morning was -2 but no wind chill. The sun was rising before giving way to clouds that would later spit snow at us. So I bundled up big time with pocket warmers in my gloves and attached the heavy 105mm. Whipped up a heavy bubble recipe and gave it a whirl. This takes a lot of patience as bubbles break so easily. But I eventually was able to get two to stick and photograph. Was delighted to see the sun kiss my bubbles! You can beat that golden hour!!!
Magic Box Puppy
While getting ready to do the Magic Box photo for my granddaughter, my 16 month old pup became rather curious herself. It never worked out with my granddaughter, for a variety of reasons, but this shot did.
