I am happy as a clam when I am being creative. Writing for this blog, expressing myself through haiku poetry, exploring nature and life through zen eyes, and dabbling in various art mediums, makes my spirit sing.


  1. Oooo….I absolutely love a slideshow! The captures are so beautiful. You start my heart evey morning!

  2. Margie…I just love what you’ve done. If you don’t mind a copy-cat….I’d love to do something like this on our trip south in a week. You just inspire me so much with all you do!
    I loved your NYC urban offerings, and now Chicago! I just love this idea.

    They are so fresh and new, even though they are old and trod upon at times. It’s the concept I’m talking about…and I just can’t get enough of it! Thanks for a super post!

    • Thank you so much Judy! I was inspired by my friend Chuck who has a blog called Urban Fragments. Check out my post “I was Inspired” which I did about 3 weeks ago. I am tickled you are inspired by mine. I am hooked on this as well. It’s a wonderful way to look at your surroundings no matter where you are. I like to think I put my own spin on it.

  3. where in chicago? lovely! p.s.. yes, toto, too.

  4. Beautiful serie, Margie. Each of them is exquisite, love the pattern.

  5. Very fun and lovely textures and colors. Great slide show. :)

  6. Very cool series of photos! Great eye for detail.

  7. Well, Margie, what can I say about those photos? Simply that I wish i had taken them!!!!

  8. MARGIE – GREAT shots!!! What program did you use for your slideshow – I am always looking for new programs for slideshows!

  9. I love pictures like that and I really enjoyed the slideshow!

  10. Some very cool and pretty snaps through those Zen Eyes Margie!

  11. You have a wonderful eye, Margie, able to see art in the unlikeliest of places. I really enjoyed your slide show!

  12. What a stunning show! I not only ‘like’ it, I LOVE it!!!

  13. Margie l love photography like this and yours is outstanding. I love the blue bird. I think this type of work shows so much about a city. A brilliant post that must have taken you ages :-)

    • Oh Gilly thanks, but didn’t take me long at all. I take the picture the way you see it. I don’t alter them. I just focus on what I want the snippet to be, and that’s that! Then, through Iphoto I group them into an event and upload them that way onto WordPress and put in a slideshow. So much fun!

  14. You must have searched thoroughly for these pics. They’re stunning! Well done, Margie. Looking forward for more.

  15. So nice and natural. Regards.

  16. textures of the city, well captured margie :)

  17. It’s amazing how different things look when you get way up close, and personal, isn’t it, Margie? These shots were/are extremely interesting when you get right up on them. Not something most of us would think of doing … until now. Good job, and a great eye. Cool post all the way around! Thanks for sharing.

  18. all chi town this time or is NYC mixed in as well? :)

    • All Chicago T. It’s fun to see the difference. New York is so much edgier. I had to look harder in Chicago. New York is a urban photographer’s paradise. I still have some sweet captures left to share from Chicago. Stay tuned!

  19. Very nice.

You know how much I love to see your smiling faces here!
