My life is crazy this week...so I'm sorry I haven't gotten up the St. Patrick's Day recap blog done yet, and I'm sorry to post this on Tuesday and not Wednesday, but it is what it is. Stick with me. For now, I'm giving you a photographic sneak peak of the weekend.
It's been a LONG time (last year in fact) since I shared any of my photography with you. I just haven't been making time to take good pictures. But, while I was in Chicago last weekend I tried to focus on doing just that. So today, I thought I'd share with you some of the photos that I'm loving from my trip! In addition to linking up with What I'm Loving Wednesday, I'm also going to link these babies up with Wordless Wednesdays!
As always, I'm dying to know which one is your favorite? Comment below!
I got this shot totally by accident. We were standing on a bridge and I was aiming the camera downward to try and get a picture of the first green water coming under the bridge. I aimed too far and got the sign on the bridge. I almost deleted it, but decided it was a pretty cool shot. I'm linking this up with Straight Out Of The Camera at Marvelous Mommy.
Photo #2: Waiting GameI loved this picture the moment I saw the opportunity for the shot. We were all waiting for the water to FINALLY turn green, and I loved this kid in his green hat and his hand on his face. I think it's my favorite shot of the week, so I'm linking it up with Sweet Shot Tuesdays.
Photo #3: The (Green) BeanIf you ever visit Chicago, you have to go see The Bean. It's my favorite piece of contemporary artwork. I thought this was a fun shot of the reflection of everyone's green attire in The Bean and I liked having the reflection of the buildings and the actual buildings themselves.
I got this picture of the marque at the Old Chicago Theater. I love the bright red and the green Shamrock sign on the light pole on the opposite side of the photo. I'm linking this up with Show Off Your Shot!
One part of the weekend that I really enjoyed and did not anticipate at all was the live Irish music in all of the pubs. This also gave my new friend, Tiny Dancer, his blog name. You'll hear more about that in the recap to come. I snapped this picture at O'Brien's in Lincoln Park.
