Hello, stranger

It's been a while since we've seen this guy around these parts. Allow me to introduce you.

Chicago, sun. Sun, Chicago.

A week of cloudy, wet weather ends today.

This photo was taken last spring in south central Tennessee. Technical notes for those of you who dig that sort of thing: Taken with a 2-stop graduated neutral density filter, 1/30 second at f22, 100 ISO film (Fujicolor Reala). Coral filter effect added in Photoshop (my own secret recipe, but anyone familiar with PS could probably figure it out).

Where in the world are the "Lost Girls?"
Ever feel like chucking it all - the job, the stress, the clutter in your life - to explore the world just to see what's out there? Three young women have done exactly that and are blogging about the experience. These three twenty-somethings left their media jobs behind in Manhattan to take a year-long trip around the globe. You can read their story here, then check out their current progress on their blog, The Lost Girls.
