Buddha and the Fedora

My daughter loves this hat. Recently she added some humor to my morning when I woke up and saw it jauntily perched on my Buddha... I pushed it back some to get a better shot of his face. I'm thinking he might have liked wearing a crazy hat... Although, it would probably have proved too distracting... Heh...

Love nests

My son found a bird's nest, empty, waiting for "new bird families to move in" (as he put it)...   It was so hard to wait, to let him put it safely back in the tree in the backyard...   I definitely am going to use it in a photo, or some art.   So lovely, and delicate...   And, too funny - our fluffy dog's fur was totally sewn in there.

Bottle Cap Love

I just loved the contrast between the green bottlecap and the dark / yellow asphalt... taken in the Wal-mart parking lot....

rainy bokeh under the bridge

It's amazing at night, in the rain, underneath downtown bridges...

365 return

Between school full time and my life I have not made time to upload my photos every day.   This is wholly unwise because now it takes 5 times as long as I try to find the photo for the correct day in my mess of photo madness.    Check it out if you like, so far I'm halfway updated....  Missing August but otherwise...

New Method Press Mag is Out!

I was privileged to work on Issue one of Method Press with the ladies of fPOE (Female Photographers of Etsy).    Issue two has come out recently and is titled "A Funny Story".  The mag is all about art,  the synthesis of art, and lo-fi thinking.   Check it out today and show them some love! 

Friday Favorite Artist

One of my all time favorite artists on Etsy happens to be Jessica Doyle.   I discovered today she has a new shop out in addition to her Etsy shop.  It is called Handmade Cloud (cool name, right?!) and she sells digital downloads of her wonderful prints for a very affordable price.  So you must click, right now, and see the awesomeness!

I'm often inspired by lyrics...

How can you see into my eyes / like open doors
Leading you down into my core...
Bring Me to Life - Evanescence

Chicago Love

Just a few of the snaps I took this weekend downtown... 

Too cool to see these gorgeous ladies walking between skyscrapers...

I am in love with this sign
You spin me right round, baby... Navy Pier

a lovely sunday walk

It was a gorgeous day in Chicagoland. My little one and I took the monster dogs for a long walk. She found many treasures along the way. When she stands on manholes, she pretends they turn her invisible... 

A little cuteness...
