My short trip to the US

I was on 5 days trip to Tucson, Arizona.  There is a month long 2019 Tucson Gem Show , the biggest gem show in the world, happening in there, and I caught up with a lady who enlightened me the delight of quartz, minerals and fossils, and the other lady who we called her ‘wise woman’ of aroma oils for therapy.  🙂

I first flew to Houston and then flew to Tucson.  15 and half hours of flight to Houston was plenty time to do watching movies and reading a book (and of course catching up some sleep!).

The itinerary of this trip was ultra short (at least for me), I spent almost 24 hours one way including layover time, and  I stayed just 2 and half days in Tucson and flew back to Sydney with almost same lengthy time for way back.  It certainly may look like crazy or waste of money.

However, to me, it was worth to do as it was really special, awesome, concentrated, intense, great time I had in taking a look all day long at rocks, crystals and fossils gathered from the world.  🙂

I was a bit too excited during the trip and did not take a lot of photos honestly.. still I would like to share some of which I caught, in some posts..

The office building of Chicago Tribune

Another throwback from my drawer, now it’s back in 2012.

This was photographed when I visited my old friend living in a suburb of Chicago last time.  I have made visit her three times in total and I did remember how I was impressed about a lot of skyscrapers in central Chicago.  I thought of Chicago Tribune was one of the best architectures in Chicago at my first visit.  On my last visit, I walked around the area and saw it again, it was still one of the best.  It was absolutely beautiful and majestic.

The friend and I had a chat the other day.  We plan to make another catch up sometime next year.  We have not decided where to catch up at, but I believe that I will be back to see this architecture again if it is Chicago for us to meet at.  🙂

This is my submission to this week’s Monochrome Madness running by Leanne Cole for other photographers and audiences who like monochrome photography.  On every Thursday, part of her blog space is being open for other photographers and their  contributions make a great gallery of monochrome photographs.  🙂
