Digital photo taken at Navy Pier.

At 12:15pm, we arrived at Navy Pier to purchase Tall Ships tickets for a 2:00pm sail.  By 12:30pm, the sky grew dark and looked like aliens were about to beam down through a single break of light.  It was the most eerie looking sky I had ever witnessed first-hand.

The fact that I enjoyed and found humor in, was that all of the other tourists wandering the pier were snapping photos of the storm as well.  I thought to myself, "If a ginormous wave were to build up and crash over the Pier's boardwalk, we'd all be goners!  And here we were - just strolling along and photographing it!"

Made for a one-in-a-million shot though.
Card dimension: 5" x 6 7/8" Envelope dimension: 5 1/4" x 7 1/4"

Handmade card on acid free, fluorescent white paper with deckle. Ilford Galerie Pearl paper used for the printed photograph. Both cardstock and photograph is printed on an Epson professional photo printer with Epson archival ink.

Each card takes approximately 30 minutes to make, from printing the cardstock and photos, to cutting apart the pieces, signing the backside of the photos, and placing the pieces together to present the final product. All photo dates and locations are recorded on the backside of the card.

Option: Use the card as a back-matting by cutting the card to the preferred framing size while keeping the photograph attached in it's place.

*Avoid displaying photograph outside or in direct sunlight to preserve color luminosity for years to come*
