Thankful Everyday – The Twenty-Sixth

26.  I am thankful for beautiful architecture.  I’m fascinated by building.  Not the building I have done, which is none, or might do, which is also probably none, but by the amazing structures all around me.  Capturing form, light, and harnessing the marriage between use and beauty, I am constantly in awe of form, everywhere.Continue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Twenty-Sixth”

Thankful Everyday – The Ninth

Day Nine…. 9.  I’m thankful for the visual world.  I am made breathless every day by something I see.  It seems everywhere I look there’s beauty and magnificence. It constantly amazes, enlightens, and nourishes my soul.  Leaves blowing from trees, blue sky, rain drops falling just so, structures made by man, light in all it’sContinue reading “Thankful Everyday – The Ninth”

Beaming

Beaming, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. There was a shaft of light coming in through a golden window. It made for the perfect funny little photo. Here’s Mary, glowing, and the guys all looking up at her. We were all sort of chuckling. Turned out to be a great shot.

Trump

Trump, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We, Karen and Mary included this time, walked down Michigan Avenue to Millennium Park today so Karen could see the bean, otherwise known as Cloud Gate, and a bit more of the city. It was a great day for a walk. Cold out. Forecast said a high of 20 todayContinue reading “Trump”

Corner

Corner, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. We’ve been downtown a few times since the kids have been here. This particular outing the kids ordered their wedding bands while Karen and I stood on the street corner with the pups and waited for them. I wait… I take photos. This one, again, with my phone.

Through The Window

Through The Window, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. This is the view from the window by the new toilet. Kind of cool. The little building is our garden shed/storage room. It’s going to be painted the same color as the house at the same time the addition gets painted. Yellow, white trim.

Shadows and Light

    Shadows and Light, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. I love this photo. I like the whole look of it, but it’s also got my three favorite things in it… Karen, Weston, and Riley. You have to look a little to see them, but they’re all there. This is probably my most favorite photo outContinue reading “Shadows and Light”

Eastbank Esplanade

Eastbank Esplanade, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. OK, I admit it… I messed around with the color of this one. Couldn’t help myself. I ended up liking it though. I don’t much tweak my photographs, but once in awhile it’s fun to just play. The modern day dark room.

Afternoon

Afternoon, originally uploaded by Tokenhippygirl. It was so lovely walking yesterday. Afterward we went to Maggie’s for a lovely dinner and a viewing of the movie Mama Mia. If you haven’t seen it, do. It was one of those feel good films. All fun. Oh, and dinner was especially tasty as well. Thanks Maggie. YouContinue reading “Afternoon”
