2010 in photos

I take a lot of photos. Pages 1-73 of my Flickr photostream are just photos uploaded in 2010. So anyway, what did I do?

It snowed. I took pictures.


By the way, this photo was taken in March. Yay Chicago weather.

Schwartzling!! My niece was born March 18.


First time seeing a Cubs game from a rooftop. Only Cubs game attended this season. They won if you can believe it.

On May 2, 2010, I achieved my New Year’s Resolution: Completing a half marathon.

The next day, I flew to San Diego for a conference. I got to visit with my mom’s oldest brother and his family. Including my cousin who I don’t think I had seen in 20 years.

Part of the conference included a trip to the Marine Air Force base where Top Gun was filmed.
