Marcia Dansky {Sculptor}

Good Morning! Last week, I had an opportunity to follow Marcia Dansky to her work place and photographed her art pieces at an art gallery in Boulder City, Nevada. Most are one-of-a-kind pieces, and once they are gone, they’re gone! It was such a pleasure spending time with Marcia; I love hearing stories and experience the passion and joy from another artist. If you are in Boulder City, Nevada, be sure to stop by the Boulder City Art Gallery & Gift Shop and look for Marcia’s work!

C H I C A G O {Father’s Day}

On this Father’s Day, we celebrated with a long bike ride along the lake downtown Chicago and enjoyed the magnificent skyline and iconic Buckingham fountain. I also brought out my new toy, the Canon 40mm 2.8 lens and LOVED it! For how small, fast, and affordable the lens is, I’m giving it an A+. It will be my go-to lens for adventures for sure!
