We wanted sunrise over the lake, so we met at 5:00AM. They got engaged at the Field Museum, so we all liked the idea of starting there for our pictures. It was a little cloudy at first, but the sun broke through eventually. I especially loved how Rebecca and Brian can canoodle on command! Here are a few highlights from that morning. This first one is my favorite:
Engagement portrait of Rebecca and Brian outside the Field Museum in Chicago.
Rebecca and Brian engagement photo session at the Field Museum at sunrise.
Rebecca and Brian laughing – engagement photo session.
Portrait at the Field Museum with the dinosaur sculpture in the background.
Engagement photo beside Chicago’s North Pond.
Sweet portrait with fiancé.
Rebecca and Brian walking by the Chicago lakefront at sunrise.
120 size film in trash can.
I finally threw out a whole bunch of old film. It all expired in 2008 and 2009, and has all been in my freezer since long before then. [sigh]
When I rack (ie, siphon) the beer from the primary fermenter into the secondary, I always fill a graduated cylinder so I can take a hydrometer reading. I use that reading to calculate the production of alcohol by the yeast in the beer. This affords an excellent opportunity to taste the beer. Drinking from a cylinder never grows old.
