I ran across the photo a few weeks ago and decided to put my scanner to use, finally. I have boxes of old pictures to go through, so maybe I’ll find more.
During the first months I was in San Francisco, a few of us hired a car and spent the day in Napa Valley. It was wonderfully warm and yet sometime between Thanksgiving and X-mas. Sitting here in the cold that is Chicago, I’m really missing that weather.
Anyways… it was such a lovely day. Walking around various vineyards, tasting wine, and having fun. The picture was taken in the car on the way back to the city.
Tonight I almost went out to photograph the fireworks over the Michigan Ave Bridge, but it’s just too bloody cold. I really can’t wait for spring… soon right?
Last weekend a friend and I took 2 trains in the middle of a bloody cold day to the Garfield Park Conservatory. Saying it was awesome seems to be a bit of an understatement.
First of all, it’s free. You can spend the entire day wandering around in absolute warmth surrounded by pretty things and the only then you have to worry about is the train rides there.
The only downside for me was the amount of people, especially the kids. If my nieces and nephew weren’t so creepily well mannered I’d still like them, but I’m just not a fan of children. Which is sort of odd because I did used to photograph them for my job. They are an exercise in patience, which I have little of. There is just nothing more frustrating when they bump into you or the flower you painstakingly set the shot up for. Well.. except when adults do it.
Anyways… I haven’t had the time to process all 200+ pictures, but here’s a few that I have done.
What’s next? Hopefully the Chinese New Year Parade next Sunday.
