Day 286 – Orange Leaves


It took a while, but our tree finally turned. For about 2 weeks, the tree was mostly green with just the tips turning orange. This morning the morning sun lit the orange leaves beautifully.

Day 265 – Half Moon Autumnal Equinox


Yesterday was the Last Day of Summer, so today we celebrate the First Day of Autumn, also known as, Autumnal Equinox. The new season brings with it the colorful leaves, football, baseball playoffs and the world series.

Day 261 – Keys to Music


I see nice contrast between the black and white keys with distinct lines and angles formed by the spaces between the keys; to me, it’s an opportunity for a nice black and white photo. To a musician, these keys are the tools to open the door to an infinite number of melodies that make wonderful music. I love to listen to music, but I am not able to make the keys produce a sound that is pleasing to the ear. I am limited in my use of the keys; a photo in black and white.

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.
