Chicago downtown

A view of a slice of Chicago downtown as seen from the Sears Tower Sky Deck. You can see the Lake Michigan in the background. The apparent curvature on the horizon is not because of the curvature of the earth but the distortion created by the camera lens at a very wide angle. Spring 2004. Chicago, Illinois.


This beautiful pink Hibiscus flower was in Mitchell Park Domes in Milwaukee, WI. We were visiting a friend there in Spring 2004. Hibiscus flowers come many colors including blood red and white, but this color is very interesting. Shot with Nikon Coolpix 4500 point-and-shoot camera in macro mode.

Macro mode. Matrix metering.
