*July 4, 1894...My grandmother's birthday*

Today I honor her memory...

Her parents saw, and lived, the American Dream...

They came from Sweden, met and married here...

She was their oldest child...

She was a bright, hard-working, motivated lady...

She and her husband raised their six children on a farm outside Chicago...

They had a pump in the kitchen...

She would kill and clean chickens for their meals...

She baked bread every week...

And still had time to go into Chicago for concerts...

She lived through the World Wars, and the Depression...

She did not let adversity shrink her soul...

My Grandmother! How much I still miss her, and her example!

I wonder what she would say if she could see what's happened to her beloved country...

Her birthday, today...

I salute her!

Almost First Quarter...



Much easier tonight! A lower angle and way fewer clouds make for a happy photographer. I used my tripod, cable release and my right angle viewfinder, all to my satisfaction. Hope you all enjoy.

Waxing Crescent Moon on June 25, 2020.



Without question, one of the most difficult photos I've ever taken. Why? The angle of view was nearly straight overhead. I could not see it through my lens at all. I took this hand-held, no cable release. Our skies have been extremely cloudy in the evenings.

Waning Gibbous Moon on June 10, 2020.

Hanging low in the south-western sky, was our moon this morning. I caught it just before it vanished into the neighboring trees!

My jacaranda is covered in flowers! (So is my driveway.)
