Celebrating the arrival of spring.
While I have definitely been enjoying its arrival by photographing the sprouting greens and blooming flowers around me, I am having trouble keeping up with the editing. My desktop seems to be getting slower and slower, to the point that I can no longer hold off on doing something about it…
One from this morning. Hoping for a beautiful sunrise, I was instead greeted by dull skies.
Perhaps due to the warmer weather, there were two other photographers joining me.
Now I just need some coffee…

I woke up early on Saturday morning hoping to catch the sunrise by the South Pier. I was instead greeted by heavy fog. To make matters worse, it was very windy and cold. After a few minutes of walking around, I noticed that condensation had formed on the surface of my camera. Disappointed, I turned around and headed for the car, since I didn’t want the camera to get water damage.
As I headed back home, I decided to quickly check out the lighthouse (I really didn’t want to go home empty handed, especially since I woke up at 5). Luckily by then, the fog had subsided a bit. I stood by the edge of the pier on some rocks, and took a few shots.
Kohler Garden Ganache Chocolates
This time in color.
An assortment of Kohler Chocolates
I had a discussion with someone once about whether food can look good in black & white. As part of a photography project, this is my attempt to take on this challenge.
It at least gave me an excuse to buy a box of chocolates from the market. Besides looking good, these hand painted ganache chocolates are also melt-in-your-mouth delicious.
The peacocks took over the Milwaukee Zoo over the weekend. They were with the camels, with the rhinos, even the black bear! This fellow decided to give us a good show, walking around in full regalia. One thing I learned is that peacocks can give out a loud (almost intimidating) shriek. A call to arms maybe?
