Catching Up With 2011

I'm pretty much a horrible blog-poster of photos unless they're wedding related, so in a futile attempt to catch up on some things captured on pixel in 2011, here are a few things to look at that were shot in the last year.

2011 wasn't half shabby, I reckon. Here's to an even less shabby 2012!

Adult Times at the Adler

In mid September I was lucky enough to be asked by my pal Annie to come down to her workplace to take some shots of an event she helped plan, and will continue to plan on the third Thursday of every month. When the workplace hosting the event is as cool as the Adler Planetarium in downtown Chicago, the decision to bring the camera is an easy one.

The patio at the Adler has one of the best views in the city, for serious.

The inside of the joint is pretty damn psychedelic.

Twenty-Some Inches of Pure White Snow

Some of the fantastic hyperbole I've heard to describe the winter storm that just moseyed on through Chicago: Snowpocalypse, Snowmageddon, The Point of Snow Return, Holofrost, Blizzaster, Catasnowphe. If you know any more, please post in the comments. I can't get enough of the stuff.

And now some photos. For the first two I'm pretty sure I was standing on Lake Michigan, which I've never swam in, mind you.
