Pretty in Pink
Too cold to be outside? Try the green houses at the Botanic Garden. This one is the results of experimenting with stacking.

Happy Wet Halloween
Taken at the Arboretum on Halloween in the rain. Why is it I can remember my rain gear when the sun is shinning, but not when it's pouring.
The Rokach Treatment
I took a class at the Botanic Garden recently, and the instructor showed us how to created a different looking image by removing the saturation of colors selectively. As one who generally likes to see in pictures what I see with my eyes, I'm not sure about it. I'd love to hear what others think.
Brookfield's latest addition posed for us on our latest visit.
I thought it was time this old man to try to learn how stacking layers works in order to increase the depth of field. I guess it works.
Hidden In Plain Sight
When I first looked at this on my monitor I barely noticed the subject. I guess that's the beauty of nature's camouflage.
My granddaughter certainly was interested in the polar bear and he seemed interested in her. Was he thinking "new friend" or "light lunch"?
Showing Off at the Shedd
The dolphins weren't cooperating with their trainers at the show we saw on Friday, but this worked for me.
While there are many hawk pictures on the site already, this one at the Botanic Garden looked intimidating to me and I'm certainly not small enough to be worried.
