Proud Sister

My brother Paul has taken to photography in the past few years, and just recently he got himself a professional grade camera (I want one too!). His photographs are artistic, interesting, and constantly getting better (for our 4th wedding, maybe we can just hire HIM to be our wedding photographer!).

On Friday, his photography was posted over at Gaper's Block, an online Chicago publication of Chicago-based news and events. Rearview is their photolog, with daily-chosen photos. Maybe we will see more of his stuff there soon?

Check out some of my brother's other photojournals over at The Long Trip Home, one of my favorites is this one.

Great job, Paul!


oh, if anyone is still wondering about the 4th wedding, that was simply a joke. Three weddings were enough!

Jackie (don't know your e mail so posting here) I have been following on the news the spelunkers trapped in Trentino. I am hoping you and Antonello and all of your fellow cavers are OK....thinking of you...

thanks for your concern! we aren't associated with the cavers who are there now, but i think that fellow spelunkers of Antonello and mine are familiar with the region and have been there before. It IS quite scary though, and we really hope they are able to get out okay. i don't know anything new regarding it though: are they still in the caves, or are they trying to make their way out today (i heard that they had planned to leave the cave today--friday)? i should probably blog something about it.

are you back in torino now?

Glad you are ok and HOPE everyone else is too. I am back in Torino as of last saturday, just in time to soak up some of the AMAZING atmosphere. Last night another notte bianco, we were too tired to stay up all night, but had quite a fun time wandering around for a few hours....it's more CARNEVALE than CARNEVALE!!! I envy your weekend with Cyndi and hope all of us can get together very soon!

Antonello says everyone made it out of the cave okay, so that's good. I guess it had more to do with the snow around the cave than the cave itself. Anyway, glad to know the cavers are safe.

ooh, how i would've loved to be in torino for the festivities! AND in Venice for Carnevale! That's okay--in a couple of weeks I'm heading to Dublin for a long weekend, so it's worth the wait (I hope!)!
