Day 259 – Night Scape


We went to Chicago to visit Justin at Concordia University this weekend. One of my favorite activities was the Architectural Cruise aboard the Sea Dog. What a great way to see Chicago at night. I wasn’t sure how my photos would turn out with so little light available and no tripod. I shot this one at ISO 3200 with a shutter speed of 1/50th second at f5. This is the Wrigley building. If you ever travel to Chicago, take a Sea Dog boat cruise out of Navy Pier.

Day 235 – Freshmen Move in Day at CUC

20120823-223121.jpg
Today was freshmen move in day at Concordia University Chicago (CUC). We packed and shuttled our youngest, Justin to Chicago for his freshman year at the University. Vicki and I are now empty nesters with our two kids attending college. Many questions spring up kn my mind… How and when did we get so old? How will we manage without kids in the house? Will the house stay cleaner longer? Will Justin remember to call Vicki every night?
Helping Justin move in and seeing his dorm room, meeting his roommate, and being welcomed by his Resident Assistant was a comfort for us as parents. We waved goodbye to our youngest and drove off, confident that Justin will do well, and also a little sad, knowing we will miss seeing and visiting him daily. Its all part of growing up; Vicki and me growing as parents, and Justin continuing to grow and learn as a young man. Wow, where did those years go?

Day 166 Family Road Trip

20120614-231022.jpg

We jumped in the Commander and took a family road trip (well partial family, Amanda was unable to join us) to Chicago. We will be attending Jump Start at Concordia University, where Justin will begin his freshman year this fall. This is a photo I shot with the iPhone 4S and gave it a grungy look with Dynamic Light and Snapseed.
