Grass, Wood & Water
20 miles of Chicago's Lakefront have many unique views. This is one of them. South Shore Cultural Center.
Jeffery Express rolling across the Animal Bridge over Jackson Park Harbor heading to the Loop. It was a very windy day. The Sailboats were bobbling, spinning around with masts clinking -- happy to catch this one at a side angle.
Retrospect: Spring 2015
The Vernal Equinox March 20th is Spring but only calendar Spring in Chicago. For me, Spring is robins, trees turning green, planting in gardens begins and tulips blooming. Tulips-Mania in Holland & Europe in the 1600s is an amazing story of value, money and trade -- because tulips are not like an edible plant, silk, cotton or cannabis and opium poppy. Mankind is touched by sheer beauty and moved by vivid colors -- in non-tropical places. These tulips bloom unattended in this High School garden. I've been here before. That's when I feel that Spring in Chicago has arrived. P.S. again. Don't let me retrospect alone.
In Last Sunrays
The Sun is going down much earlier. We've lost about an hour and a half of daylight.
Fusion of Seasons
Some of Summer and Some of Fall.
Summer's Last Day
The last day of Summer -- vanishing -- saying "So-Long" -- to 2015. Hyde Park at 57th & Stony Island.
Green tree admiring her conversational friend -- who is already changing her attire. 71st & South Shore Drive.
Peacefulness of Aloneness
Lone tree in a B&W September. Off of Rainbow Beach, the Lake and a fenced-in Water Filtration Plant.
On the Way
Sailing out of the mouth of Jackson Park Harbor. Normally, as the evening grows old a lot of boats are usually heading in, but they can navigate the Lake at night. This one was heading out and it looks like the party had begun.
Although the evening was getting late, I watched these full sails beauties leaving Jackson Park Harbor.
