I took no photos when I was home in Illinois this time. I'd planned on a photo safari in Chicago, but that didn't pan out. So, just a couple of photos for you...
Gonzomantis and the Sasquatch at the Thomas Dolby/BT gig at Sonar in Baltimore, 12-20-06. Yes, my friends are big dorks. That's part of their charm!
My friend Lunesse, glass artist extraordinaire and tour goddess, dishes out the merchandise at the Dolby/BT gig. This woman has the patience of a saint. Seriously. And she makes rockin' cool beads!
New Year's Eve at the Jefferson Memorial. I was out and about with my friend Keith, in from Denver. Keith is an accomplished photographer. I, on the other hand, am not. In particular, I have no skill with nighttime photography. However, I decided I liked this fuzzy photo - the lights reminded me of swans landing.
And this fuzzy one made the "light swans" look like they were arching their necks as they floated along the Tidal Basin. (Hey, lemonade out of lemons, what can I tell you!)
This was just a wicked-looking tree near the memorial. I liked it.
My picture postcard image of the Washington Memorial. Proof positive that even the most inept photographers can get a good shot (after twenty tries!)
