About Me

My photo
Thank you for visting my blog. When I started this blog, it was just the vehicle for which I had hoped to share photos of our life in Chicagoland with our loved ones, but it has turned into so much more for me. Life is ever evolving in our household and time no longer stands still. Every moment is precious and worthy of being captured and treasured. In addition, through my love of the camera, I have had the opportunity to meet and also capture moments in others' lives. It is my hope, with this blog, that when my memory fails me, the words and photos on this blog will remind of where we were. History...Through My Glass...

Mid Summer

I can't believe summer is more than half over already. Although we haven't been town much at all on weekends, I feel like there is still so much to do. We took Roan back to the Arboretum, but there was a wedding going on so the children's garden was closed. We were not deterred though. Roan just ran around and tried to roll down the hill like the bigger kids. (Click on the photograph for a larger picture.)

I don't like how this picture turned out, but it is one of the rare ocassions in which he is looking into the camera and has a big smile on his face. This is one of those that I categorize as "Only A Mother Would Love".

This 'sculpture' is one of the main attractions this summer. It's kind of a house/maze, made of tree branches. It's really cool and very organic looking.
The above picture was so blown out, so I tried to save it by converting it to B&W. There are still some blown out areas, but he has his little thinking face on.

Another one I attepted to save. I remember back in the old P&S days, I always wanted a day with light so that I wouldn't have to use the flash. Now I pray for overcast days. Unfortunately, last night was very bright. It was an amazing evening, but not quite for my limited picture-taking skills.
We 'found' this park near our home that has a little island. These are my guys. Choua never wants me to post pictures of him up on my blog. I would say that this one does not count, since you can't see his face.

I tried to work on my focusing issues again. These were taken on a stormy evening. I didn't have much light to work with so I had to up the ISO, which caused a lot of grain. Again, in the 'Only A Mother Would Love' category.

He's so handsome! I wish he'd let me capture him more.

This one was the best of the bunch, so I didn't have much to work with. He's holding his cool light saber sword. He calls it his "stick".

Just as I am planning to call the specialist, he is starting to say so many more things. He put his finger to his lips when we were lying on the mattress is his room before bed and said, "Shhh," and then something like, "be coyit", which I took to be "be quiet". He's also randomly naming things that he's playing with. I feel a little more at ease now so I think I'll hold off on making that call. Thank you for everyone's kind words.
