Up In The Air

Sheboygan, WI

Took this over lunch break yesterday. I think it was 0 degrees F. Maybe -5. Though really, once it gets that cold, it doesn't really matter.

At least Lake Michigan looked majestic. There were even some ducks swimming. Maybe the cold is messing with their heads.

Project 52 B&W
Week 51: Christmas/Holiday
#p52bw13 | +Project 52 B&W
Curated by +Tisha Craw, +Susan Porter & +Lauri Novak

Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas

My favorite holiday song, besides the entire A Charlie Brown Christmas album.

Being away from the computer, I had to use alternative methods to edit and post this shot. First, I used the wireless feature on the 6D to transfer the photo to my phone, which I then edited on Adobe Photoshop Express. Afterwards, I sent the finished image to my iPad via Air Drop, to post onto G+. Phew.

A Monotone Sunrise

Schaumburg, IL

Grr, got some catching up to do. In the past 1, 2 weeks, I've been hosting my parents, who were visiting from CA. Also spent some time preparing for a 14-person sit down dinner, which went very smoothly yesterday (it's all about pacing).

In other news, I'll be retiring my t1i very soon...

Story
Tagline
Food, Photography & Diaper Changing Duty
Introduction
I've lived in many places in my youth, mostly in Latin America.  It is why I have come to appreciate different cultures.  Eventually I settled down in the Midwest U.S., and I now have a beautiful wife & adorable son.

I enjoy all things culinary.  I find cooking to be relaxing.  I love the 'instant gratification' part of it, as raw ingredients are transformed into something delicious. 

I also like economics, particularly macro.  The Economist is one of my favorite magazines.

I started photography in college to document memories.  Eventually it turned into a passionate hobby.  Types of photography I enjoy include food, cityscapes and architecture.  I also love taking photographs of my family.
