2019 has been a wonderful year, and a busy year. Our family is growing and lots of activity and change (the good kind) professionally, so, I am not able to get out and shoot as much. Here are a few moments from a park with two of my grandchildren.
It has been a while since I have last posted because I have been in Texas this past week presenting a couple of workshops at a worship conference. I stayed with some dear friends that we have known for over 30 years (yup, I am a bit old)! I was able to visit the seminary I graduated from…. uhh…. a while ago….and we spent some time in downtown Fort Worth, TX. These were taken at the Water Gardens with my phone since I decided not to bring my Canon.
Hope you are not getting too tired of all these Chicago images! This is the Jay Pritzker Pavilion at Millennium Park, Chicago. I have officially given this crazy pavilion the title of “the most difficult location/structure/….thing to photograph…. in the universe!” I have a couple of other images of this pavilion here and here. The beautiful, asymmetrical design of the architecture, along with the network of tubes that are suspended above the grassy area to hold the speakers for the sound system, all create a “busy” location to try and photograph. Still, it is a beautiful pavilion, and serves as a centerpiece of the recreational and concert life of Chicago.
Chicago is such a photogenic city! Millenium Park is an amazing urban refuge of fun, music, art, gardens and entertainment. This is a picture of the famous Crown Fountain. You can read about it here.
