Guess what? It’s snowing AGAIN. At least I have the day off (Good Friday and Catholic college = day off!) and can stay inside blogging in my pjs all day!

I thought I might share some of my black and white photos with you that I’ve been doing for my photography class. I developed and processed these babies from start to finish, which is totally fun to do. Maybe I’ll make my own darkroom when we move to Nashville – I can totally see myself doing it as a hobby (one of MANY).

This is my mailbox in the entrance of my apartment building.

One of the reasons that I love Chicago so much is the rich architecture and history. Our apartment building, for example, was built in the 1920s and is full of character with a hardwood floor, plaster walls, high ceilings and glass doorknobs. This is a building on my street, which I refer to as “The Castle Building.” Somebody in my photo class said it looks like Santa’s house, minus the apartment buzzer.

This picture makes me smile because it’s of a close friend of mine, who had difficulty conceiving and tried for several years. Thankfully, after she and her husband went through in vitro (which was not an easy decision to make) she successfully got pregnant. She’s due in May and I couldn’t be more happy for her!

I’ll share more later. Let me know what you think of ’em.
