Vintage Gear.  I have had a couple of months with these beauties.  They are in great shape however do need some cleaning.  I am excited to see what type of photos these two antiques will produce.


A place that I have always wanted to visit, just never have.  The caretaker was generous enough to allow me to stay until the sunset had completed.  My helper was sure impressed with the building itself.  As we were there past the closing time, he wasn't able to see the inside.  This place is just as awesome as I thought it would be.  The building is very unique and architecturally amazing.  The Holy Family Shrine is truly one of the most interesting things I have had the opportunity to visit and include in one of my photos.


Snow Moon, eclipse and comet.  So there is supposed to be a crazy celestial couple of nights. The snow moon is in full, then surprisingly a partial eclipse of that moon with a shot of the comet 45P later on in the evening.  I think mother nature didn't understand the crazy combination of things occurring and decided to grace the area with cloudy skies.  The moon was too far under clouds to get a good shot of the eclipse.  The clouds were too thick to even try to see a comet, but I was at least able to get a different shot of the snow moon.

I started this blog a long time ago to follow my photography journey.  I have neglected it for a very long time and feel that it may be time to begin again.  I have many photos on here from prior years and looking back, I would say I have vast improvement over my old self.  However, that being said, I have lots to learn and do to improve every day.  I was planning on doing a TWIP (this week in pictures) for my 52 week project.  I plan on posting 1 photo each week that I have taken that I deem to be a favorite.  I am going to use this as a motivation for making and improving my picture taking ability.  In addition, it will get me outside to actually take pictures which is something I have struggled with in the past couple months.  Making time for family, activities and work have really put a damper on my "getting out there".  So, this week we are experiencing a so called "icemageddon" storm that has shut down may locations around the midwest.  I captured this sunset pre-storm and would like to share it with all of you.

The clouds were really crazy, but were vanishing quickly as I headed to my location.  I was happy to capture these before they were gone.  Thank you for looking.
