A Fabulous Weekend

Filed under: News — chantal @ 9:23 am

This past weekend in Chicago was amazing. After months and months of planning and organizing, the NAP Meet-up was a success! It was so great to finally meet so many people who’s work I had been admiring for such a long time, and many of whom I’ve been emailing and chatting with for a while. I’ve said this before, but this past weekend only confirms it: Photographers are incredible people.

My husband, Shamon, had a great time too, and even got caught up in the photo-hooplah. He took this picture of the group of us at The Bean:

Then Sunday morning, I woke up early and took a long walk alone through downtown, out to the lake front and along Navy Pier. I made this picture during my walk:

The weekend was spectacular on so many levels. I met an amazing group of people, explored a fantastic city (…which, I must add, is fighting NYC for the title of my favorite city of all time. I grew up in CT, so NYC and Boston were frequent destinations. But the charm of Chicago is totally unique.) I also took an astronomical amount of pictures, and the best part is, I love almost all of them!! And the icing on the cake—-I got to do all of this with my amazing husband at my side. I was afraid he would be on photography-overload by the end of the weekend, but he really enjoyed himself, and we were able to steal away and get some time for just us. It was wonderful.
