Spring in Chicago


Summer came early to Chicago. After a very mild winter we have had a week of 80 degree days. Trees are blooming early and flowers are coming up very soon. Its nice to extend our Spring/Summer here because we usually have such a cold long winter. Here is a photograph from my neighborhood with the trees in bloom. Enjoy!

Winter Wonderland in Europe


When I was invited to stay in Switzerland my first impression of what it would be like would be lots of snow!! It was going to be January. I had this idea that it was cold and just snowed for days on end. Well 4 weeks into my trip and we didn’t really have any snow in Baden. I was a little surprised. Then this week it started snowing and didn’t stop for 2 days. The pathways were not cleared and the streets were filled with snow. My flight to Vienna was delayed because the runways could not be cleared. This is what I was hoping Switzerland would be like. It has been extremely cold here in Europe. The cities I have visited over the past week Paris, Vienna, Baden, and Zurich have all been around -12 C. Yes, I am from Chicago but its freezing if you are outside photographing! So here is a quick look at Europe under the deep freeze.

Photographs from Vienna, Austria coming soon!

An afternoon in Venice


I really loved my time in Venice, Italy. I have been several times but there is something so magical about the city. I especially like walking the canals and looking at all of the unique door fronts and architecture. No matter how many times I visit, there is always more to see and explore. This is one of my favorite photographs from my last trip. Enjoy!
