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...

50's

We got almost up to 60 degrees today! It was wonderful! I always say that Autumn is my favorite season, but deep down inside, I think Spring really is my favorite. Roan was so excited to go for a walk after daycare.

It's amazing to me how we haven't been out playing on a playground for about four or five months now and how his development had increased. He is such a little dare devil and wants to do everything on his own. He was so proud of himself.

When it was time for us to leave, he wanted to show us that he was not ready. I decided to try a fun action on this one. I'm not really sure I am digging it.

Then he turned to look to check if we had noticed. Another action, I think I like a little more. I wanted these to have a retro look to them--like the photo had been sitting out in the sun and the color had faded. I thought his haircut and outfit was fitting a retro photo.

On our way home, as usual, he found a stick.

Choua wanted to get some chips so we stopped at the gas station. We had no money and he didn't want to charge $1 on his Visa so we went home. I don't know why I've never noticed this wonderful signage before, but I love it! It's right across from where I dropped my D80. I couldn't step far enough away to get more of the sign because I'm shooting with the 85mm lens.

I think this is my current favorite shot. It's not technically great, but I love how silly his little grin is.

P.S. Tomorrow is my birthday. I am older than there are days in a calendar month.

Happy Birthday Kaosong. I love the picture of RoRo with his back turned away. I really like the worn out look on both pictures. Also wanted to send you some positive thoughts on your running and weight loss. Keep up the good work. I finally broke 160 today (I'm 159 now). I know it won't stick as I'll be up and down by a few pounds for at least two weeks before it sticks for good but it took a year for me to break this point so don't be discouraged.
