My friend and very talented illustrator, Peter Blair, gave me this George Washington (at least it looks like George) marionette about a year ago. For a year, I let George lounge around our backyard in Chicago's unforgiving climate. For much of the time, he sat in a flowerpot, where plants and spiderwebs grew around him. We just recently moved Mr. Washington to our front porch to scare off trick-or-treaters, but before we did, I photographed him in his favorite little pot. I used my Pentax LX with a 50mm lens and Ilford Delta 400 film. The physical print is 10 x 8 inches.

Last month Katie and I got married! For our honeymoon, we traveled to Quebec City for six romantic nights. I was pretty astonished at just how European Quebec City is, especially considering it's less than a 3-hour plane ride from Chicago. We stayed at a charming little hotel called the Chateau Fleur De Lys for the first night, but for the next five nights we crashed at the Chateau Frontenac, the most photographed hotel in North America (I purposefully did not make a picture of it solely based on this fact). I brought along my Pentax LX and shot a couple rolls of Ilford Delta 400. Here are some shots from the first roll. I mainly used my SMC 50mm F/1.4 lens.
Thanks for looking! I will have the second roll up very soon.
