Back on track for the 10 on 10 challenge – 10 photos on the 10th day of the month!  I will confess, I did my hourly photos yesterday – much better options than office blah.  So here’s Sunday fun day.

Pumpkin bread and tea
A glass of milk – can’t go a day w/out one
New fall/winter plantings in the outdoor pots
Fun mural spotted on the side of Smiley Brothers
Holiday decor is out in the stores
Portrait shoot at Northwestern’s campus
Spotted a little graffiti under the El – love spotting these things
Red ivy { heart }
My fun new hat { thank you Target! }
Ended the night with some photo editing

Bowie at the MCA

What a great exhibit! Loved that it had a soundtrack. Funny how many Bowie songs are woven into the fabric of my life. One observation – he’s a tiny man! So many costumes and suits that are smaller than me! Amazing who he collaborated with over the years too. If you’re in Chicago its a must see!IMG_5911-0.JPG




fall family

I had quite the photo taking weekend – yesterday architecture and today people – family photos for my friend Jen.  It was super fast as the older one was a little on the fussy side – oh to be two…  I got a few cuties, but find that my lens does funny things at 2.8 and that super frustrates me.  I get back to the editing room and think boom, perfect shot, but no something’s not in focus ..  grr.  Anyhoo.. Aren’t they the cutest little fam?jfm_fall
