This month I am featuring the Marexar-CX Multicoated 28mm F/2.8.
It is a manual lens that I acquired a few months back, but have never used.

Snowy Flowers

Much to the displeasure of nearly everyone in Chicago, it snowed again last night. All the wonderful flowers and plants are struggling to survive this cold snap.

Micah at the gate

A picture of Micah wanting across the gate we have that separates the hallway from the dining room and kitchen. Here Micah pleads with me to let him over to my side. (This is a safety shot from April 12.)

I was able to get out of the house and hang out with some new friends today who were visiting Chicago. We ate a wonderful “modern taco” restaurant called Takito. We had the place to ourselves. This is a shot from inside the restaurant.

Micah, Mr. Model

Micah has learned that if I take his picture, he can see it on my camera’s screen. This morning he wanted me to take his picture so he could see himself and it turned out to be a mini-photo shoot.

Micah Swinging

It was just warm enough today for a family trip to the park. Micah loves swinging.

Only took one shot today. Micah just chillin’ with his piggy bank in the bean bag.

Code of Honor (BW)
