Despite the unbearable heat last week in Chicago, it did have a lovely side effect. I came home one evening to find that the warm air meeting the cool water of the lake combined with the setting sun created the most beautiful dreamy haze at the beach. It was beautiful and for the first time in a while I was truly inspired to grab my camera and my boys and head outside. It was really just incredible the soft fog and the way the light filtered through in rays. It was like another world.
It was beautiful and dreamy, and a little eerie as well. Very Silent Hill.
As a photographer I’m rarely in the photos, but I couldn’t resist getting in on this gorgeous light action, so Thomas took a few photos of me as well, and he did a great job. He was very proud of himself too saying, “Maybe I can be your second shooter!” Maybe!
Oz puts up with a lot from us, but I still can’t believe he let Thomas balance him on this post. It’s 4 ft high at least! What a trooper 🙂
Lastly, my favorite, my two favorite boys sharing a moment.
