These globe sculptures were all along the waterfront in Chicago. I wish I'd had more time to photograph all of them but these are a few of my favourites. They are all on a conservation type theme. I kept getting left behind as I stopped to study each one.

P had a meeting about the Westminster commission. The good news is they have insisted he come to S's wedding in October so I won't have to do the wedding photos on my own. Hooray! Now I can sleep again at night; it will be fun if it's a joint rather than a solo effort.

I have been busy ironing and doing housework today as tomorrow afternoon S and I are off to visit Talj in Leeds for a couple of days. I'm trying to forget I have a job evaluation interview tomorrow morning :(

I also managed to download and edit most of the photos from my Olympus compact and they are on Flickr now. I'm always so pleasantly surprised by the quality of pictures this little camera produces and the editing of them is much easier as they aren't RAW images.

Next weekend is a long one and I'm hoping to sort out the garden - it's looking terrible. Very overgrown and over-saturated.

Wow Julie it looks like you had a fabulous time in Chicago, beautiful colorful and diverse photos. I look forward to seeing more.

I hope you have slowed down a bit and next time you are in USA hope we can get a chance to meet up, we arent all that far from Chicago. Nothing exciting in Indiana though, beans and corn LOL.

((((Hugs))))) and take care.

I love these globes. I would have had to stop and study each one too.

I agree that these are very good quality shots.

I think I would have lagged behind too... these globes are lovely and each one so different. Have a great time with Talj...give her a {hug} from us and wish her luck for the Britball.
Hope the evaluation went ok...

I definitely would have been lagging behind right along with you! Those globes are great.

I'm really enjoying the photos from your trip :)

Try not to worry about the evaluation - I am certain that all will go so much better than you think {{HUGS}}

That looks like a fun time. I'd love to wander around with there with camera in hand.

Our old Sony 3MegaPixel makes great shots too. I love the versatility of the dSLR, but they little guys are quite capable too.
