Someone To Look Up To
John Hancock (my favorite skyscraper in all the world) stands majestic in the night sky.
Milton Olive Park is beyond this point from the front entrance of Navy Pier.
It's Beginning To Look Like WHAT?
Christmas lights during the month of March? What's up with that?
Olive Park After Dark - (2012)
A return visit to Milton Olive Park yields a beautiful sunset over the Windy City. By far, the best photo I've ever shot at this location. :-)
Just A Splash
The most difficult photo to shoot during my excursion to Olive Park and Navy Pier on 3/16/12. Changes in the I.S.O. from 200 to 500 has made all the difference world. Why didn't I think of this earlier on my shoot?
Return To Oz
"Toto, I have a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore!"
Another Rooftop View
The last b&w photograph taken in the old dwelling that was overlooked during this past year.
Take A Stroll Through Your Mind
You'll be suprised at what you might find!
In A Sentimental Mood
"In A Sentimental Mood......I can see the stars come through my room.....
While your loving attitude...... is like a flame that lights...... the gloom.
On the wings of every kiss.......drifts a melody so strange and sweet.......In this sentimental bliss....... you make my Paradise complete. Rose peddles seem to fall......It's all like a dream to call you mine.......My heart's a lighter thing...... since you made this night...... a thing divine......In A Sentimental Mood.....I'm within a world so heavenly.......For I never dreamt that you'd be loving sentimental.....me." - Billy Strayhorn & Duke Ellington
