    Our 9 month old son keeps me very busy; the vast majority of my photos are taken while pushing him around or commuting to work. But this weekend the stars aligned for a rare, totally free hour by myself in beautiful Jackson Park, near the Museum of Science & Industry on Chicago's south side. Here are some photos (with 12-40 and my new used 60mm 2.8).

    Nice shots! I am SO jealous because I never get out in the city without the kids. Mine are 4 and 9, but they have no patience for Daddy taking his sweet time setting up shots. :)

    I particularly like the first one, and the last one. On the shot with the MSI reflecting in the pool, it's a shame that the high-rise in the background is exposed on the right hand side. I'd be tempted to try to clone it out, or perhaps a different shooting perspective might obscure it.

    Yes, I agree on trying to clone it out. This is from almost a year ago, when my kid was pretty small, and it was all I could do to just get these on the computer - these (slightly less hectic) days I would aim for more aggressive processing.

    As someone who often finds himself in a similar situation (18 month old), my compliments on taking advantage of your hour. Time well spent...
