Hope your Valentine’s day was happy and full of love!

Happy Monday!
This weekend was quiet. I hung out with grandma Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. It was nice. Got to chill with grams and watch all the daytime tv that I never ever get to see anymore– the view, maury povich (really? are all his show’s “I ain’t the baby daddy?”) and Judge Judy!!! Boy, does my grandma LOVE judge Judy!!!! My sister and nephew come over on Saturday– such a treat! I hardly get to see them! (Hi June!!!!) Sunday was spent just relaxing and vegging out.
Today’s Macro Monday theme is “Celebration of Life” in honor of Steve “Baissie” Evans.

Steve was a fellow flickrite who passed away last week. He was very active in flickr and the Macro Monday group. I’m sorry I didn’t get a chance to know him, or see his photostream before he passed away. He did beautiful photography, so please take a moment and check out his stream…

Good morning! Happy Monday! This weekend was quite the busy one! As you know, our friend Adam came in from New Mexico. We took him to all sorts of cool places in Wicker Park on Thursday. Friday we hopped the El and took him to the Art Institute, and had dinner at Italian Village (where I lost my phone!!!) Came home Friday evening and just chilled.

Saturday, Adam was supposed to leave, but we had gotten something like 8″ of snow overnight,and it was still coming down! We ventured out for breakfast (c’mon, if you’ve ever had Walker Brothers Apple Pancakes, you know why) and decided that it was much to perilous outside to venture out anymore. We spent the day cooped up indoors. I think Adam was coming down with the sniffles. Later on in the evening, when the snow stopped, and the roads were safer to drive on, we went to toys ‘r us, and to get some coffee. Feeling a little more adventurous, we drove down Lake Shore Drive a bit and took in some city sites.

Sunday morning arrived sunny and clear, so Adam took off toward the great warm southwest.

But my adventures weren’t over yet! Sunday we met up with Cindi (aka Dr. Beef) and her beau at the Museum of Sciene and Industry for some learnin’ and photography fun! While we had an awesome time with Cindi and Terry, we were disappointed that there were so many sections of the museum that were closed! I don’t think we’ll be going back there anytime soon.
Whew! What a weekend! I seriously think I need a day or two to relax and recover!!!!

Anyways, today’s macro monday theme is Imperfection. I took this shot Friday at the Art Institute. Its a statue representing Horus, the egyptian god of the sky. What I love about this shot is that the sculpture is beautiful, glossy black stone, and looks nearly perfect except for a tiny chipped bit by the wing.  Love it.


Have a great Monday!

Happy Monday! I hope you had a wonderful holiday week! I’m looking forward to another long weekend!!!) This week’s macro Monday is meaningful holiday ornaments. I must confess, i sorta cheated on this one. I don’t put up Christmas decorations and I have no ornaments that are meaningful left over from my childhood as my grandma threw away our Christmas tree and all holiday decorations (I am so sad– I would LOVE to have the aluminum tree that we used to put up! Do you know how awesome and how expensive they are?)

So, this macro Monday shot is one of my shots that my company used as their email Christmas greeting to their customers. I’m pretty excited that we used my photo again (it’s good to be the one who creates the emails!)

Happy Monday!!! I’m back with another Macro Monday– This week’s theme is “Seeing the Light.” I really like this weeks theme, as I find light to be very important when I shoot!

This is a close-up shot of the face towers that are on Michigan Ave. in downtown Chicago (right outside the art institute.) The faces are kinda creepy. They just sorta stare out at each other. But anyways, all these tiny lights make up images of these hulking towers! Close up, they don’t really look like much, do they? get a little father away, and they look like this:
