I am going to get a podcast out for the beginning of each week. Every Monday morning there will be a new podcast waiting for you in your podcast player.

Tony Reynes and Anne Belmont have been leading a lot of photowalks on the weekends for the Garden Photographic Society. That’s a fancy term for the Chicago Botanic Garden Camera Club. They have invited followers of the Out of Chicago site to join them on these walks. Stay tuned to Out of Chicago for future walks.
