My cousin Maricar and I met up last Friday to take photos and have some drinks afterwards. It was raining when we met up after work but we still tried to take photos of the Wrigley Building. We took these shots from Wacker Drive on Wabash Ave.

Then, we decided to head over by Foster Avenue Beach to take some shots of the lake in the fog.

My friend and I went to the Chicago Full Moon Fire Jam by Pyrotechniq, which is a fire and performance art troupe based in Chicago and Iowa.

It was my first time trying to shoot something like this. I'm not really happy with the shots I've taken but thought I'd share in case you have any suggestions on what I can do next time to improve my shots. :)

There's one more scheduled for November. I think I will go again :)

Outsourced

Add an "IRELAND" sticker to the suitcase, please!

For almost a year and a half I have been working at 401 North Michigan Avenue. It is also called the Pioneer Plaza.

Right on Pioneer Plaza is the "God Bless America" by sculptor J. Seward Johnson.

I like it. "Oh, the American Gothic in 3D..." I said to myself when I first saw it. My friend told me that he had read something about the sculpture having a deeper meaning as signified by the suitcase with stickers but I really didn't look it up. So since it was installed, I pass by this sculpture as I go to my secure and comfortable job.

On Monday, October 5, my secure and comfortable job is no more. That morning, we went into a department meeting and found out that our jobs are being outsourced to Ireland. There was shock all around. Nobody can believe what they had just heard.

Being into photography, I occasionally bring my camera to work. That day I just happened to have it with me. So, after the meeting, I told my friend that I want to document this day.

So anyway, we walked around the plaza and I took my photos. As I was taking photos of the God Bless America sculpture, I asked my friend again if he remembered what the suitcase meant.

He said, "Outsourcing".

Perfect.

A Sweet Moment with Grandma


Flickr Link: Aristea and Grandma



Aristea (ar-is'-te-a ) turned one last month. I love this photo of her sharing cake with her grandma. :)

She is a lovely little girl. She is full of energy and happiness. Her smile makes your heart melt.
