It was hard to choose a picture today amongst all the cute pictures to choose from. But I think I like this one the best. Micah was an Elephant for Halloween this year. He was SO cute. I think this picture captures his confusion about what we were doing to him. I love this little guy.
Wonderfully red leaves on this tree in Deerfield, IL.
Autumn leaves during the day are beautiful. Autumn leaves in the evening seem sinister somehow. The shadows. The lighting from the street.
I walked home the other day and saw this lonely mitten from some child’s poor cold hand sitting our our fence.
This is a Japanese tea set that was somewhat of a wedding gift from some missionaries when my wife and I got engaged in Japan in 2008. We have them in our china cabinet now. The design you see is all handmade.
My wife and I were treated to this incredible night of storytelling. Six people told ten minute stories from their lives. It was a beautiful evening.
I was able to bring back the keyboard from my parents house that I grew up playing on. It will be nice to finally be able to play the piano whenever I want again.

My brother is up visiting me for most of the week, and I am helping him learn the ways of Pentax on my old K100D
Lots of homemade applesauce from family in Indiana. Yum!

Nothing too extraordinary today. Making homemade yogurt with a friend.
A happy manta at the Indianapolis Zoo.
Out visiting the in-laws in Carthage, IN.
It’s laundry day. The laundry room gives me the creeps. Pipes, and buckets, and hoses, and strange lighting, and cobwebs.
I read this book about 3,000 times today. It only seemed fitting to use it for me picture today.
Tried to vacuum a bit, but anytime I run the vacuum my son grows very concerned. He always looks up at me with this look.
A couple of my Pentax film cameras and my mug. (Shameless plug?)
My good friends had their first baby on Friday. My wife and I were able to visit her before she was even 24 hours old. She was such a cutie! Here is the family enjoying their new bundle of joy.
A wall full of neat textures and some graffiti in the Ravenswood neighborhood of Chicago.
My neighbor’s porch seems to have fully embraced the autumn season.
My friend Eric standing while some fog surrounds him.
The sign pointing the way to the entrance of the Western stop on the Brown Line in my neighborhood.
Part of a lamp in the plaza of our neighborhood.
Grapes along the back fence of our building.
During a light drizzle this morning I captured this shot of a leaf on the windshield of my car.
Caught a single flame standing out from the rest on my stove.
Colors at the ATO Chapel at Trinity International University.
Saw this horrible spider in the tomato plants in the garden outside of our building. Yikes! Apparently it is a European Garden Spider.
