Wandering: 2015.01.06 (Part I)



After a recent snowfall I had come to realize that I’ve never went out on a winter photo walk while living in Chicago. This seems a bit odd considering it seems like winter is 7 months out of the year but when the cold weather hits and the snow starts falling I really have no desire to go out into the howling winds and low temps once I am warm and cozy. I suppose all photographers feel like that at some point. Anyway, something must have crawled up my butt the other day because I finally ventured out and braved the weather to get some photos.

This is day one of a two-day post of photos from my outing. It’s a lot of the same places I went on my last photo walk during the fall.

Faded Flowers



I recently bought a new external hard drive just for photos. Had to do it. I had WAY too many files on the old design/photo hard drive and it was just time to get a new one. While trying to bring down the amount of images I have archived I came across this image of some fake flowers in a container. I took this thing probably 3 years ago when visiting my mom one summer weekend. I never did edit the photo but I had an idea for it and finally did it. Simple edit for a simple photo. Nothing special, just something fun to post.
