Baha’i Temple

I am developing a more official lab/group webpage so denniscao.com is going to become a little more of a personal blog rather than a science one. Stay tuned…

I’ve been wanting to upgrade from my Nex-5n to a full frame camera for a while, so naturally the A7ii caught my eye. I was able to snag one used one from Adorama with a shutter count of 200, and saved $200. Totally worth it!

Had a chance to visit the Baha’i Temple in Evanston today. It’s pretty. See photos.

Happy 4th of July!


Seeing as it might be my last year in Chicago, I trekked out to Adler planetrium to watch the Navy Pier fireworks. Apparently I was not the only person who thought it would be fun to take a few pictures. There were almost as many tripods as there were people! Anyway, here’s my panoramic take on the view. The city scenes were taken right after the fireworks ended and stitched in Hugin. The fireworks seem a little far from the city, but that’s unavoidable because they are launched from outside of Navy Pier.

Website Reborn

I have moved my photography site to the nether and a chemistry research oriented site has been born in its place. I wonder if anything newsworthy will happen to me so that this is not the only post on this page other than the Hello World one.
