January 29th ?

It's 58 degrees at 8:15 pm on January 28th in Chicago,
 and I'm outside taking pictures in my P.J.'s with no coat on.
Last week at this time it was zero degrees.
Say What?

hense the mangled up left ear.
(I received the Nikon D800 for Christmas, I'm a little disapointed in
the moire I'm seeing in some of my pictures. I thought that would
only happen with the D800E any suggestions?)

Snow Day

We finally broke the record here in the Chicago area.
We had gone a total of 335 days with less then 1"
of measurable snow.
 Still not enough to make the snow man she was hoping for though.

Say Yes

I went wedding dress shopping with my niece today. One of the
bridal shops had signs all over saying NO PICTURES.
ummmm OK.  I figured no dress, no bride, no harm.
