Who here has this Monday afternoon/eve. off work? (the 9th?)
The last time I went to Brookfield was in 2007, about a year ago I believe.
The Shedd was a couple of years ago.
And it's a *never* as well for the Chicago Botanical Garden.
I've been really wanting to purchase a Canon 100mm f2.8 Macro... if we do decide to go to the Botanical Gardens for a photo shoot... I'd really like to have purchased that first. I should be able to afford it a little later this summer after my next few weddings. Almost done paying off my 40D
Otherwise I'm game for anything. I am only about an hours drive from Chicago, so I am not opposed to heading out there more than once as well
The 100 Macro is an awesome lens, I regret selling it sometimes. I've currently got the 180L Macro if you want to use it or the 135L plus extension tubes. I'm up for going to any of the above or somewhere between here and Indiana. I'll have to double check but I should be available the 28th and 29th. Good luck with your weddings, I've done a couple this year and need to figure out a better routine fo processing, it's currently taking me forever.
I'm presently open for something on the 28th or 29th. I do my post processing in bulk in Lightroom, I have found compared to doing everything in Photoshop that really saves me a lot of time since I can bulk edit.
It looks like I'm going to the Cubs Sox game on Saturday the 28th so how about Sunday the 29th. Who's in and where are we going?
I just ordered the 100mm f2.8 macro... so I'm open for anywhere It will be here well before then.
I'll be out of town the 23rd till the 29th so maybe sometime in July after the 4th? I'm not going to let this thread die so speak up people. Who's in and where do you want to go.
OK so lets set a tentative date of Sunday July 6th in the afternoon at the Botanical Gardens. Dave does that work for you? Anyone else want to join us?
CBG is always good shooting, weather permitting. (Morton Arboretum members get in free, BTW. )
I'd have to get a request in at work pronto as I most always work Sundays, so let me get back to this in a few days, m-kay?
Do you work at Morton Aboretum?
Hope you can come! Let us know
So it's Cat and I with David as a maybe.
Any other takers? Don't be shy, I know there are other Chicago area members out there. If you don't want to post here PM me.

(hmmm, didn't I take some pictures last week...wonder where they ran off to...)
Hey, the more, the merrier! Gas is high right now. Your avatar pic suggests a transportation alternative to the price of driving.
Haha, now that would be quite the story... Deciding to ride the horse all teh way to Chicago just to take some shots!
I have a wedding booked that weekend... Maybe next time.
Mine is as well, but I figure I'll need Sunday to get a jump start on burning the images so I can get the cd to the bride and groom... :
