This tree was in our front yard and was during pretty poorly, so Kate decided an extraction was necessary. The guys piled some of the wood in a spot where the afternoon sun hit it just right.

Kate had another assignment to find some plants at the Arb. While she was stomping around, I looked for something to take a picture of. This plant doesn't look highly photographable, but with a macro lens, just about anything looks interesting.

First Unitarian Society of Madison

I almost didn't come here since the sky wasn't terribly interesting on the day I was in Madison. I've had too many nice building shots ruined by gray/white skies. But as I was leaving the seminar hotel at the end of the day, the clouds looked interesting. So I drove over to this church to see what opportunities it presented. As their web site says, parking is a problem. And they appear to be doing a major construction project at the church. So, I parked my car illegally, spent a few minutes snapping a few pictures of the obvious and most interesting architectural feature, and left. They offer tours of this church and it IS a UU church, so maybe we'll come up here on a Sunday after they've completed construction, do church, and then take pictures. The shot would be better in the morning light anyway.

About a billion years ago, I started my career as a staff accountant for John M. Smyth (or do you say Smyth). Their main store and headquarters was in this building. I worked on the second floor. Thrilling information, right?

A friend asked me to take some pictures of her son playing football. This was my first serious attempt at photographing a sporting event and it was actually fun. Unfortunately her son didn't play, so there are no pictures of him, but I thought that a few of these were worthy of posting.

Soldiers Memorial


Soldiers Memorial, originally uploaded by jimfrazier.

Stchuck and I were trying to photograph this statue on Tuesday night. I went past it on Thursday morning to see how it looked with early morning light - not too bad (the statue faces east). But the flag that we were trying to get in the background wasn't waving, so we'll have to keep trying. The sky was definitely blue, though.
