winter trees of chicago

i took this series of photos last february....

inspired by
the organic
 bare winter trees
juxtaposed against the
 icy skyscrapers
in downtown chicago.


so very inspired by this beautiful woman
(one of my besties)
who just booked a flight to come see me!

Wow - Love the pics!! Great job!
I know you will enjoy the time visiting with your friend.
I did not get out in the cold today - stayed in and continued sorting/ salvaging what I could from the water damage and dealing with the restoration service and insurance. (last post).
Stay warm.

Hi Erin, I've started blogging again. Began a new blog this week so I've been enjoying some others. Haven't done that in a while. I've enjoyed your fb posts but now I'll be seeing more of your beautiful photography in blog land too.

You have such an artistic eye, Erin. Love the way that you look at the warmth of nature against the cold of man-made buildings. :) Can hardly wait to hear about the gal-time you'll spend with your bestie! Enjoy and be blessed!!! :)

Hi Erin, these are beautiful!!! I really love the bean one. I know it takes a lot of time to just play around on photoshop. You are such an artist! I just hiked in the desert this week, so my pictures will be quite the contrast to yours. :-)

Hello dear Erin,
I wish I could send you some warm air... No winter weather here.. It's in the low 80's.. I would welcome some winter weather.

I love this post, you have such an eye for beauty!
Thank you for your visit and kind comment about Oliver.
