Sometimes what's floating by my head is more interesting that the rest of the world. And for a few seconds the bubble that was reflecting the Chicago skyline took it's time to be beautiful. In those magical moments the bubble taught me something. It popped without much fanfare.

He always said I was a good listener. Oh iPod you will be missed.

"Take my picture, I wanna be famous"

Sometimes the best photos are made when you let yourself go completely. Sometimes the best photos are made when you let your camera go completely.

Cat Nap

I spent a lot of time home alone this week with my cats.

"Of all God's creatures, there is only one that cannot be made slave of the leash. That one is the cat. If man could be crossed with the cat it would improve the man, but it would deteriorate the cat." - Mark Twain

Dance Dance Revolution

"We started dancing together about a year ago," William Wyzgala yelled into my ear, either trying to be heard over the Grand Avenue Big Band or because of hearing loss.

Wyzgala doesn't carry business cards. He will proudly dig out a return address sticker with his name printed over an American flag, after a few uncomfortable moments, from his brown leather wallet.

Wyzgala takes his dancing partner, Dottie Bigelman out stepping "Two or three times a week, sometimes more."

There's more to this story, I hope his address is correct.

Geekfest St. Pete photo dump

So I've been home for a week and back spending my days with mostly uninspired co-workers. Shake it off and keep focused. Remember where you were and live for the moment. That great moment.

I'm so glad I made the trip this year to Geekfest. Most of us spend our days with people who really don't 'get' us. So it's nice to take a vacation and not be the strange one.

Dear Chicago

En route back home from Geekfest St. Pete. I was heading home to somewhere that is not really my home. Taking pictures like a tourist. The south sider next to me asked me if I was visiting Chicago. I realized most people don't see their world like they're a tourist in it.
