It was 66° outside today, the day after Thanksgiving. We don’t shop Black Friday. I can’t remember the last time I did – it must have been when I was in middle school. Instead, we took the dog to the park then took a stroll through Lakeshore State Park, in the middle of downtown. It […]
For the first time ever, I had a zoom lens in my possession. It was tricky to figure out where to use it on its virgin excursion. I considered Holy Hill because it’s the most beautiful time of year to take pictures there, but I’ve been there so often and it’s always overcrowded during the beautiful […]

To jump straight to the gallery, click here: http://jen.jllocke.com/blog/2016/12/lake-superior-ice-caves-march-2014-gallery/ and please be patient for all the photos to load.

By now you’re likely familiar with the fact that I post photos on ViewBug. And that I’ve received a couple awards in the last few months. I’m glad to announce I’ve got another award! They awarded me with “Brilliant” this time. That seems generous, but I’m flattered and thankful for any recognition. And, of course, […]
So, y’all know that I like to take pictures, right? Well one of my photos won an award at viewbug.com! Yay!
Yesterday I tried a very light “smoke” colored (it’s really kind of a pearly iridescent white) nail polish. This was the second time I tried it, and the first time it came out horribly. This time I managed to make it look presentable – mostly. I had two nails (one on each hand) that came […]
