View from an Alley
Interesting architecture as viewed from the rear of buildings. Somewhere on the southeast side.

Another Bleak December
Ah, distinctly I remember it was in bleak December; And each separate dying ember wrought its ghost upon the floor. from: "The Raven" by Edgar Allan Poe"

Musicians at Play
I was driving down King Drive near 47th street on that inner-street of the boulevard. I looked across the street at these musicians jamming & dancing in this empty lot. I lingered to get a few shots. There was no audience, just the musicians. They were moving about, picking up and playing different instruments -- jazz-like without any recognizable songs. A lot of bands start in garages, but in the inner-city there are musicians that have these joyful jam-sessions in empty lots and in the Parks all around the city. It was a beautiful evening and very nice to hear "live" music piercing the temperate air.
Seating in Red
In a serene Jackson Park Inner Harbor in August. I was shooting over the tall black fence. I really wanted to be laid-back in one of those red chairs, with a couple of beers, taking in the beauty of the Harbor. Everything looked so peaceful.
Field & Clouds
A full Sky of Cumulus Clouds reaching down to the ground on a chilly day in March. (touch on them)
Roar In Peace
Symbolism: the fall of Tiger Woods. When I first saw this headstone before the Season, my Title was to be "He's Back." Even when he didn't win the "Masters," I kept the faith. Not making the cut in the "U.S. Open" and "the Open" didn't shake my belief, because the Open was won by Zach Johnson, who is the same age as Tiger. However, not making the cut in the PGA opened my eyes. And Sunday losing the Wyndham Championship, with mostly none of the "big boys" there -- and to a 51 yr. old brought me out of denial. But, i'm still thinking, "Jack" won his last Major at 46. "Hope springs eternal in the human breast" -- Alexander Pope -- Plus, "Never underestimate the heart of a champion" -- Rudy Tomjanovich -- and since I live in Chicago, I'm going to stick with the mantra of the Chicago Cubs, "Wait 'til next year" Rise again Tiger!
"Live long & Prosper" There has to be a few Trekkies & Spock fans out there. Jackson Park Harbor.
