Went shooting with a bunch of photo enthusiasts and instagramers for the world wide instameet today. Started at Union Station where we got access to a vintage women's lounge space courtesy of the Chicago architecture foundation. Then we took the Chicago water taxi east and ended with coffee at Space. So much fun to see how different people photograph the day ! Here are my photos from the day.
Today's prompt for Fat Mum Slim photo challenge is "sunrise." I am never up for sunrise - not a morning person - so I was not sure what to do for a photo. Well, Phoebe decided to wake me with the sun at 5:20AM. I laid there for a couple minutes and decided to hop out of bed, throw on a jacket and head over to the beach. Boy, I've been missing out!! It's warm light over the soft waves with cool breeze and birds soaring high above... Lovely, just lovely.
week sixteen in photos - chicago and nyc more please, dirty I'm reading this, my vice something I learned, good money (bunny money!)
Finally. Finally made it to Laudrée New York! It's the little things that make this girl so damn happy. I have been begging friends who live in NY to bring some to me when they visit - but hasn't happened yet. I have been to Jersey three times since the new year - too far to go for macarons (even for me). So finally had a meeting in Manhattan and promptly after hopped in a cab to Laudrée! It's a small store, very busy and they rush you through the line, so there wasn't really time to linger and take it all in. But, I got me a dozen all snug in a box and headed home! Hands down the best macarons around!! (p.s. did you know they are flown in from Paris daily!?!)
week fifteen in photos a taste of spring (not much of it here in Chicago yet), where I'd rather be my favorite part of the day hobby, dark three of a kind, on my left
week fourteen in photos fast, faux something purple in my hand, shapes good together, not mine
week thirteen in photos I'm loving, one of a kind soft, I am here something I made, nostalgia sticky
week twelve in photos beautifully ordinary, today's weather five years ago cropped, full letter (times two!) morning
Week eleven in photos 10am, far away something good fresh, partial care, evening
March ten on ten - a Sunday out and about. Breakfast with Click Magazine (love that magazine!), beautifying, allergist - finally got my walking papers and after four years of shots, I'm done!!, badly needed car wash - road salt is a killer, target, lunch @ longman and eagle - was there three hours - long wait, good food and drink!, shopping on Clybourn! Hope your tenth was fabulous! (no .. I didn't buy that plate from West Elm, but it is kind of fun, no?)
