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 239 – Happy 1st Day of College


Today was the first day of college for Amanda and Justin, even though they attend different colleges, they both had their first day today. The first day of school was always an exciting time in our house while the kids were growing up. We always made sure to take a picture of them dressed in their new school clothes, adorned with their back packs, and anxiously waiting for the bus. This year we were not able to take a picture, with Justin attending Concordia University Chicago, and Amanda attending Saginaw Valley State University and living on her own, Vicki and I were not able to see them off. So, Happy 1st Day of College to Amanda and Justin, and all the other college students!
