Lights Like Four Fireflies
The above photo of the snow-covered Grotto in Omaha’s Elmwood Park is one of several photos of mine found in the 2017 Omaha “River City” Calendar. The calendar is one of five events calendars for Midwestern cities (Chicago, Kansas City, Milwaukee, Minneapolis, and Omaha) published by American City Calendars. Several of my Omaha photos were published in a previous (2012) ACC calendar and it is nice to again have a few shots selected. (Last time, my mom wiped out the stock of calendars at Barnes & Noble (well, they only had three left), but this time she left a decent stock on the shelves).
The use of my shots also helped justify my decision to update my old Olympus Pen E-P3 m4/3 camera with a new Pen F (and the sale paid for a big chunk on the Pen F, as I noted in a previous post).
Here are a couple of my other photos in the 2017 Omaha ACC calendar:
Joslyn Art Museum with Daffodils
Joslyn Art Museum in Omaha. A beautiful piece of art deco architecture and a surprisingly good permanent art collection (for a city of Omaha’s size). It routinely gets great exhibits to boot. A few other photos I’ve shot of the art museum may be seen here.
Daugherty Conservatory and Visitor & Education Center
The Daugherty Conservancy and Visitor and Education Center at Lauritzen Gardens, Omaha’s 100 acre, public Botanical garden and center (more about the botanical garden here and here).
Have a great 2017.
