Happy New Year


643 // December 31, 2009 A very spur-of-the-moment photograph of Keystone’s Torch Light Parade down the mountain. Caught it at the tail end — wish I knew earlier so that I could set up a better long-exposure shot. Next time I suppose. Have a very safe and happy new year! Advertisements

Happy Eggs


154 // March 22, 2008 Happy Easter! Back in Chicago to spend time with the family, and my sisters had dyed a bunch of eggs the day before my arrival. However, I knew they were doing that. What I didn’t know is how my youngest sister had meticulously painted on special pictures on each egg, […]

We celebrated here with some yummy potato and cheese soup, car bombs and black-and-tans with Dave’s brother and wife. Wait, how does that make me sober […]

064 // December 19, 2007 Looking from across the street at McDonald’s — the tree lights just off of Colfax were pretty. The fast food chain even decorated with lights on the roof and a few wreaths to greet their customers.
