We found are little slice of heaven amongst hundreds of people and cars at The Arboretum today at the peak of the colors.
I noticed this in my backyard before I went on vacation. The weather was still nice here. Then it felt like Summer again in New Mexico. Now I'm back to Fall again...where does the time go?
I was looking for a bird...
but caught a plane instead.
The Magic Light
We found it.
I sure enjoyed the jellies at The Shedd Aquarium.
One Pink Water Lilly
It must be nearing the end of their season.
Water Lilly Bud
I was inspired by Harold, another capturemychicago photographer friend, to go to the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I am in love with this place and I wish I lived closer.
Grosse Point Light Station
This is a national historic landmark built in 1873.
(A lot of mosquitos live here.)
"Pretty Boy" is a teenage boy and he can't take his eyes off of the three year old or his muzzle apparently. He is fascinated by her ring-a-round the rosie.
We look for the "magic" light under the canopy and today we found it.
I've loved taking photos since I can remember! I love art too, anything artistic. I have so enjoyed capturemychicago! I have learned so much. I hope to improve and have fun doing it. I will never look at three things in a row or a seagull or a leaf the same way ever again thanks to the many wonderful photographers. Thanks to everyone who has been so kind. I have so enjoyed looking at the abstracts, fisheyes, B&W's, and of course HDR photos! I have a deeper appreciation for nature now and have seen more beauty in the world even if it's only in my own backyard but mostly in your photos. Thanks for enlightening me! And I'm sorry I didn't have my camera with me tonight because the moon looked awesome rising. But I smiled because I am hoping someone else captured it tonight for me to enjoy! Thanks capturemychicago! You made my year!
