Jon Farr of San Antonio, Texas, chose Thoennes Studios to shoot his new international portrait.
A photo sent to me from the client after their six stained glass panels were installed by the owner. Each panel is 69-7/8″ x 16″ and is made of glass, zinc, steel and a special polymer adhesive to withstand the San Antonio heat.
A little late for snow for my tastes as we’re all seemingly tired of winter by now, but this scene shows some of the surprising beauty winter still offers.

Frank Lloyd Wright was a master designer of the “Light Screen”, or stained-glass windows as we know them now. These are two of my favorites. The Dana Thomas house in Springfield has dozens of intricate windows, panels, sconces, doors and clearstory windows with these intricate patterns. The fountain glass doors go all along the wall off the Dana-Thomas living room. This reproduction of one of those panels was built by Thoennes Studios, and completed in 1997 using a plan masterfully executed by Dennis Casey. Original prairie-style zinc came, lustre glass and float glass was used in the build. The piece on the lower left is a reproduction of Wright’s window in his home and studio in Oak Park, IL, which was completed just for fun in early 2000.
ABC news reported that the South end of Lake Michigan may get 20 to 25 foot waves from the northeastern winds directly influenced by hurricane Sandy. Can you imagine? We’re in Chicago, and the storm is affecting us here. God speed and blessings from Chicago for you East coast residents.
AS you can see from this chart, most of us are likely using drives that have data rates towards the bottom of the speed range now available. You can see the data rates for the newest USB 3 and Thunderbolt drives near the top of the range. Enough said. Firewire and other drive interface methods are likely to be discontinued. Start collecting those adapters!
The question of whether the color would be better or worse this year because of the extreme heat and drought has been answered. Even the red and white oaks are almost totally rusty-red now and the maples seem like they were airbrushed. Wonderful.
