Kate and I were wandering through a garden and I spotted this girl having a snack. This was an intensely sunny day (as was every day of our vacation). But she was sitting in a nice shady spot, which made the lighting perfect. This may be the best shot of the entire vacation.

Kate and I took a trip down to the Chicago Flower and Garden Show on Sunday, 3/15/09

I enjoyed it much more than I expected since I had a VAL (voice activated lightstand) to hold my flash off camera, and a camera that takes much better shots at 800 and 1600 ISO.

In Flanders fields the poppies blow...

In Flanders fields the poppies blow...

IN FLANDERS FIELDS the poppies blow
Between the crosses row on row,
That mark our place; and in the sky
The larks, still bravely singing, fly
Scarce heard amid the guns below.

We are the Dead. Short days ago
We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow,
Loved and were loved, and now we lie
In Flanders fields.

Take up our quarrel with the foe:
To you from failing hands we throw
The torch; be yours to hold it high.
If ye break faith with us who die
We shall not sleep, though poppies grow
In Flanders fields.
