Last weekend my wife and I attended two friends’ wedding in the U.S. Virgin Islands. They eloped for a variety of reasons, and we were honored to be part of the select few invited along for their adventure. Aside from U.S. Airways not understanding geography and sending my bag to Turks and Caicos instead of the U.S. Virgin Islands, it was a fantastic stay. It was also the first time I’ve gotten my camera out in awhile.
With the recent move, I haven’t had much opportunity to get my camera out for some image-making. Whenever I get a moment or two, the time is spent unpacking boxes or hanging up a shelf or building some crazy contraption for a closet.
As it was my second time to the U.S. Virgin Islands, I didn’t get my camera out much. Sure, I shot some images at the aforementioned friends’ wedding, but beyond that, most of my time was spent lounging on the beach or frolicking in the water. My wife and I thought about getting up one morning to go out at sunrise, but it was more enjoyable to lay in bed under the covers and listen to the waves crash onto the shore.
Now that we’ve finally received some snow here in Chicago, it’ll be nice to get out and capture some images of a snow-covered Windy City. Although, if it gets too cold, images like the one above will seem farther and farther away from recent memory.
