My parents came up to visit a few weeks ago for my birthday, and we had a nice visit to the Frank Lloyd Wright home and studio in Oak Park.
It was really interesting to see the home he built for his family, especially from the point of view of a designer. He had quite a lot of fascinating ideas, but they only developed over time, as is clear in the home. Some parts are very familiar as part of (more…)
500+ photos from a folk festival over Labor Day weekend has really been slowing me down! Since I really didn’t take too many photos on my trip to San Francisco, I’ll just skip ahead to that and come back when I’ve finally culled and processed all the photos from the Fox Valley Folk Fest. (more…)
I had a trip all around the northeast this month. My mom wanted to do some spring hiking, and I wanted to visit my grandparents and Piyush in Boston, so we teamed up for a tour of NY, NH and MA. (more…)
I went down to Charleston to visit my brother for the weekend before Thanksgiving and watch large amounts of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. I got a lot of knitting done. We had a good visit with some tasty food, and the weather Saturday was really gorgeous, so we went for a walk around the park near the nuclear school where he’s been doing training. I haven’t really spent much time in the real South, so (more…)
Before I show the rest of my photos from Charlotte Beach, I wanted to say thank you so much to all of you who helped vote on my photo competition entry with the Genesee Country Village & Museum! It was close but I just barely made it into the winning group! Very exciting stuff. :) So, on to the rest of the photos from my visit to Charlotte beach. There was some nice sunshine which I took (more…)
I was up visiting Rochester at the end of August for some good adventures including singing and yarn-seeking and a pig roast. Took a lot of photos I’m quite happy with at Charlotte Beach along Lake Ontario. The weather was pleasant and sunny, but a thunderstorm blew up while I was taking photos of a seagull out on the pier and a hasty retreat was required. (more…)
As Maurice was getting married there, I made a trip to Chicago. It was a good time to see Ben H, Lillian, and Fred for the first time in quite a while, and I took pictures. I also had adventures with a German woman in Starbucks who wanted to tell me all about her travels and observations on Americans when she found out I spoke German… That was interesting. (more…)
I have been taking my sweet time about getting these photos up, I know! But I need to get them finished not least because I have another batch of photos from my trip this past week!
So without further ado… (more…)
July 4th saw me driving across Virginia towards Newport News for a weekend with my friend Chels and a visit to Colonial Williamsburg. Along the was I made a stop at Appomattox and Petersburg to check out the NPS sites. (more…)
Sunday was pretty quiet and included a visit to First Unitarian, which was good, if somewhat weird since I’ve been gone quite a while now, and most people were at General Assembly. Otherwise, it was very hot, so there was a trip to cool down at an oddly-juxtaposed gelato shop / African art gallery/store on Park Ave. (more…)
