Looking Up

These photos were taken at the Wrigley Mansion a few days before Christmas. The mansion was built in 1932 and is a lovely place to get a view of the city, have a drink, eat, and take a step back in time when ceilings were ornate.

Now that the holidays are over, I need to get back out shooting so I have more than cats to post about. I’ve been reading The Nikon D80 Digital Field Guide since I’ve been kind of lazy about learning all the features of my camera and I’d like to start using it to its fullest potential.

I’ll be posting my 52 project, mentioned in my previous post, on my Flickr set, which is listed on the left under “More of My Stuff,” as well as on the Flickr 52 Weeks Group Pool. I may post them on here, too, if I like them, but this blog will primarily continue as it has. I just hope to post more but that all depends on how often I take photos.

Hope your week was pleasant–I found it hard to get back in the swing after the last few shortened work weeks. I’d much rather blog all day.

  1. I am always amazed when I see how much work an artist has put into a project like this. This kind of thing doesn’t really exist anymore. Everything is so quick and cheap. A shame. I’m so glad you took these photos — what a keepsake!

  2. The ornate art work is very impressive in your series. I’m certain you’ll enjoy studying the many features of your camera. Fine series.

  3. What a lovely place. I have never been here but heard about this mansion. The detail and artistry is absolutely exquiste. I am wondering if this is from the arts and crafts movement…in any case it is really beautiful. I think it is awesome that you are pushing yourself with the camera settings…it gets easier.
    Lurv your new header Candace.

  4. Great detail images! I have always seen that mansion sitting atop the hill and wondered what was inside…in all my AZ years I never went. 😦 Thanks for sharing this!
