Flower in Metallic
Sitting in traffic in the turning lane of the Congress expressway near LSD when I spotted this metallic flower.
Interpretation of this metallic flower on a frosty morning -- near Lake Shore Drive.
Although Silk & Plastic. I like silk flowers in my house where there is no Sun. They look real and give me my flower fix..
Bungalows & Tower
In March snow that has come & gone.
Amber in the beauty of spacious skies - as it is in the Amber waves of grain.
Live-in houses, abandoned houses and an empty lot in a gust of flurries.
For about 6 blocks as I was driving along, the flurries were nearly blinding -- and I loved it. Since December, we have not seen the beauty of blowing snow, nor have I felt biting snow on my face as I squint my eyes. In the next block, without a hint, the snow had stopped or I had simply driven out of the squall. It was like a quick change of a scene in a Movie. Things were quiet and I was gliding as opposed to driving along. Suddenly -- in the vastness of an overcast Sky there was a breach in the grayness and inside the breach it was snow-white & sky-blue. I pulled over, reached for my camera on the seat while saying, "OK Nikon, I want to see that exact scene tomorrow, next year, the year after and any other time in the future that I want to pull it up and relive this glorious day." I guess this is the essence of why we take pictures.
Wind Swept Hour
One of those days. Sunshine a little while, then snow flurries -- and constant wind. South Shore Golf Course. (Click)
The Day at Rest
Since early Morn, the Skies have been moving - a little noisy - overcast & sunny - flurries & no flurries. In this evening hour, day light is almost over. The Sky has bloomed with color and it is quiet, tired and resting before the dark night.
See No Evil
As I'm driving around admiring the architecture of old & new buildings, I always look for those small - accent type - windows. They don't seem to be made for much looking out of. Many have stained-glass on them and they have vertical, horizontal, octagon or round shapes. They give the building or house uniqueness. This one caught my eye because I can't recall seeing this shape before. I would guess that it's along a staircase. The all black gives it a sense of mystery. It contrast well with the other tall, narrow, vertical windows, the wrought iron fence and the shadows upon the old brick.
