bridge 001
Fabyan Villa, Japanese Tea Gardens, Batavia, Illinois
One of the bridges on the foot path through the Japanese Tea Gardens on the Fabyan Villa Grounds. The volunteers do a great job on the gardens and the grounds in general. This is a very relaxing (and popular) place for photos.

I think we found the side entrance to the Mines of Moria…
Actually, Fabyan Villa grounds, this is one of the fountains / statues / reflecting pools that is currently in an unrestored state. This is located near Batavia, Illinois along the Fox River. The grounds have the restored villa, Japanese Tea Garden, private office and gardens. There are also other un-restored sites on the grounds. It is a relaxing area to visit and photograph and the grounds are a short (paved) walk over the river to a restored grinding windmill.

Blue Angels 001
The Blue Angels Team was practicing for the Chicago Air and Water Show over the City this afternoon. I captured a few decent pictures of them from the office (33rd floor). It turned out to be quite a challenge to capture these planes. They move so fast and trying to get framed up, focused and get the shutter open as they fly between building was a great test of “how well do you know your equipment?”.
