Corrugated Fence Art
Painted by South Chicago Art Center at the Scrap Yard at 93rd South Ewing. Art done through murals always makes an industrial area look much better.

I went back to this spot for a shot at some of the others and this was a pleasant surprise of the same toadstools.
Dog Days Mist
It's been a very wet August 2014. I kinda like it. Bird Sanctuary South of McCormick Place.
Field in August Fog
Bird Sanctuary just south of McCormick Place in midday fog.
William, thanks for your comment on the B&W upload of this shot. I'll start giving the color and B&W shots of the same shot on some occasions. Sometimes, I think B&W will make a shot. I grew up with and still love B&W movies. And sometimes I'll change a shot to B&W to get that nostalgic RKO-like movies effect. But color films go back a long ways. In, arguably, the greatest year for movies (1939) Gone With The Wind and The Wizard Of OZ were in color. 1984 and 1993 are in the argument of great movie years. 59th & the Dan Ryan.
From a Rocky Shore
It was a spectacular day, so I went to catch the Great Lake posing. South Shore Cultural Center Beach.
Color It Abandoned
It's still imposing -- even when shot from the back. Although the day was sunny & colorful, I decided this abandoned Church didn't share in the happiness & brightness of color -- but share in the moodiness & subduedness that B&W brings. Maybe I'm just expressing my sad feelings, because I remember the Church in some of the years of it's heyday. Just off 59th & the Dan Ryan.
