2012-08-19 [Amy] Prickly Pear

This photo of the Prickly Pear cactus in the airid dome of the Mitchell Park Domes turned out quite nicely. Playing with the available lighting, the photo has a beautiful reflection of another of the domes in the background with the sun reflecting off of it, highlighting the blooms of the Prickly Pear itself.

2012-08-18 [Amy] Doorknob of Justice

This weekend we had some fun playing tourists in our own town. One of the places we visited is the Basilica of St. Josephat, which is on 6th and Lincoln.  A beautiful building; much of it was build from salvage material from an old post office in downtown Chicago.  Here you see the uniquely styled doorknob which used to be on that Chicago post office.
