Snapshot Saturday 7/12

Snapshot Saturday is hosted by West Metro Mommy Reads.

It's been a while since I've been able to participate in Snapshot Saturday. Most of my photos this past month have been of family stuff, as we've visited my father-in-law to help clean out his house so he can move near us and my own father who recently had surgery for cancer.

But I do have a few interesting photos snapped along the way - two of that amazing, glowing light that sometimes comes just before a summer storm (hard to capture in a photo!)  and one of the Chicago skyline from our plane, as we flew back home this week:

Eerie, beautiful, glowing light before a storm

Hope you are having a great weekend!


  1. The sky photos are indeed eerie yet awesome. That pic from the plane is a wonder. Never thought of taking pictures from inside the plane. Good result you have. Thanks for sharing.

  2. These are memorable the Chicago skyline...and that deck, too.

  3. Great photos. You're right -- it is hard to capture the light that comes before a summer storm, but you did a good job. The Chicago skyline shot is amazing too.

  4. Sorry to hear about your father. How did the surgery go? We are at an age when the stress of child-rearing is lessening and cares for our parents are increasing. Sigh. Here is my post of the week:

    1. Thanks for asking, Anne. The surgery was very extensive (7 hours!) but went well. He seems to be recovering well but will still need another surgery for reconstruction/skin grafting plus chemo. Long road ahead but step 1 seems to have gone well.

      Hope you enjoyed your recent trip!


  5. I love the golden sky after a storm. Great pics!

  6. I really like the plane shot. Really hard to get a shot like that right.

  7. I love those eerie glowing skies. I hope your family members are on the mend.
