Single Flash Assignment

My VERY Modest Begginings with Flash...

Anna Martinez's first dance at the Artisan's Wednesday Latin Dance Night.  Her partner, known as "Link", attends everyweek.  With the closing of other venues, the Artisan has just begun hosting this event this Fall.  

Selena Lian works as the sole waitress one Monday night at Formosa and Cajun, what has been Columbia's Downtown Chinese restaurant on Broadway for over thirty years.  Selena, originally from an area near Taiwaan has been in the US for two years.

Somewhere off lake Michigan...

Chicago, the "New York of the Midwest", seen from the bean sculpture in Millenium Park. 

We passed the weenie truck on the drive up.  Somewhere in Illinois.

Downtown Milwaukee.  Someone really didn't want their bike stolen...too bad we passed by later that night and the entire sidewalk was missing (construction).  

Pidgeons in downtown Chicago.  I got several awkward stares from pedestrians.

Art institute of Chicago. Fueling up for the visit, so much to see...

The essence of a museum piece.

So much house for such a tiny person.  Emily's Victorian house, Milwaukee.
