What do you get when you combine kids and cameras, stunning weather and Chicago’s lakefront? Our first “Through Their Eyes” post.
Mr. N is busy rehearsing for his upcoming show, which means weekends are spent driving back and forth to the city. Fortunately, it does give us the opportunity to take advantage of warm, sunny autumn afternoons along Lake Michigan. Although I swear I am seriously contemplating moving back down there if he keeps this acting career rolling!
So today, we packed up for the city, with cameras in hands – their hands – to practice.
Miss A used a Canon Power Shot A1200 with a 5.0 to 20.0mm 1:2.8-5.9 zoom lens. This one has lots of fun features for her to play with and is small enough for her to manage.
Mr. N used my old Canon EOS Digital Rebel, as well as my Canon EOS 7D. He’s ready for something more complicated now.
We spent several hours wandering slowly along the lake. It’s amazing the things you find when you take your time and have eyes observing at all different levels.
So before we announce our winner, here are the images taken (and selected) by Mr. N and Miss A along the shore of Lake Michigan on the North Side of Chicago. These are their stories.
Through Mr. N’s eyes:
Now, through Miss A’s eyes:
And now for the randomly selected winner of our giveaway, a signed copy of Iron Chef’s Jose Garces new cookbook, “The Latin Road Home”….
Congratulations Amy! We’ll be in touch. Thank you to everyone that entered the contest and pushed it on social media. We’ll have a few more giveaways for you all next month!
Tonight, we’ll leave you with this shot, Miss A directed its composition and asked that it be posted. 😉
Have a wonderful start to the week! We hope you enjoyed this sneak peek into the “Through Their Eyes” posts to come this next year. See you later in the week with one of our favorite go-to dinners.
