A Quick Trip

I'm just back from a quick trip -- Friday afternoon to Sunday afternoon -- to the Chicago suburb of my childhood. My family and I traveled to help my parents celebrate their 50th wedding anniversary! (Wow, huh?) I knew that I was the designated party photographer, but I didn't know that I'd also come home with some interesting pictures from the jaunt to the Midwest. Here are a few of my favorites:

Sunlight and shadow on the observation deck of our local airport:


On the road with the Weiner Mobile -- Ha!


An experiment with black and white photography, mid-day sun and a succulent in my mom's garden:

Congrats to your parents! I actually grew up in northern IN about 100 east of Chicago and went there often to go to the museums and zoo.

That first picture looks like a quilt screaming to be made. As for the succulent, well you know how I feel about those.
