Home Plate in October
This pastoral scene of a baseball diamond is empty & silent of the real "Boys of Summer." Although for them, it all starts on small fields like this one for the dreams of one day making it to the Big Leagues. This is my tribute to the World Series that is taking place in Kauffman Stadium and AT&T Park by the Giants and Royals. Calumet Park.
Born in late September, Autumn still has that green Summer-look, but she's starting to blossom with colors. Jackson Park lagoon on the western side of Wooded Island.
State & Steeples
Or maybe Glory & Old Glory. Either way, two institutions in the building of America. Off Ashland by Costco.
Sing Autumn Leaves For Me
Mural of Nat King Cole. In Autumn, I'm looking at trees everywhere to get a shot of the beautiful Autumn leaves. I ran across this mural on the side of a building at 43rd & King Dr. -- in the heart of Bronzeville where Nat was raised. He attended Dusable High School and studied music under the famed music teacher Walter Dyett. Being Autumn, I thought about his velvety version of the beautiful song "Autumn Leaves." When I got home, I went on Youtube and listened to his version along with a few other great singers that covered the pretty song. They were all good to hear during this colorful Season. I thought that the mural itself, being painted on a brick wall, was especially good.
Another Autumn Day
Visitors from Canada feeding in beautiful Calumet Park.
Even though it was overcast and rain minutes away -- I just had to shoot Autumn. Calumet Park.
Autumn Walk B&W
Of all Seasons, maybe it's sacrilegious to turn Autumn into B&W. But what the heck. Calumet Park
The evening & the scene had a bluesy feeling. Calumet Park -- end of east 95th Street.
Tall Tree Undressing
Taking off it's leaves, or they're just falling off -- and that's why the Season's called Fall. Calumet Park. End of east 95th.
