Old barn, new snow

I've shot this barn a few times, especially this last Autumn and now, in January, with this new fallen snow.  It's just outside Smithville, up by the lake.

This week's theme for "Theme Day" on vfxy is--you guessed it--"tree".  I shot this last Autumn at the Liberty Memorial here in town.  I liked the setting sun, the color, the blue and gold, and then the single person, walking from right to left in the corner.  I thought it added the interest it needed.  I liked the brilliant orange reflecting on the building in the left-hand corner, too.

I took this a few years ago in Chicago, along the lake obviously, in early June when I was at an annual, international meeting I used to attend every year. I walked from the Merchandise Mart (from NeoCon, the meeting) down to the lake and then back. I had a great time and got a lot of great shots.

I thought it was a great time to remember Summer and sun and warmth and green.

Have a great weekend, y'all.

Happy New Year: Best pic of 2010

I thought this my best of last year because it is, in my opinion, unique and because the pinkish light of our Country Club Plaza this night was so ubiquitous, with the exception of the two blue beams emanating from the church across the street. It all came together to have great energy, I thought.  I got a lot of good shots this night, due to the storm but thought this my favorite of that night--and the year..

Happy New Year, everyone.  May you be healthy, wealthy and wise, in all the right things.
