Apricot Clouds Evening
Today was an on & off weather day. Heavy rain, light rain, just overcast, and in between each -- sunshine and cumulus clouds. This was the beautiful, very cool & windy evening at North Slip inlet -- around 84th & Lake Shore Drive.
Dead & Grotesque
Among the dead. There is no "I think that I shall never see / A poem as lovely as a tree." But in yesteryears, the Oak Tree was alive & beautiful -- as those resting-in-peace around it -- were once, alive & beautiful. Oak Woods Cemetery.
Dark Clouds Rising
As if from a long & wide Factory on fire -- Clouds are rising beneath the canopy of a tall Black Locust.
Moorish Temple Style architecture. 79th & South Chicago.
Tennessee woman's backyard.
Steps surrounded by a Summer day. Just driving by admiring Summer greenery.
Chicago Marine Safety Station
I was heading north and the bend on Lake Shore Drive was bumper to bumper, stop & go traffic. Otherwise, I would've been able to let my window down and get this shot. I didn't know that this is where the Police, Fire and Rescue boats -- for those in need on the Lake -- are stationed.
Essence of a Park
"A park is a work of art designed to produce certain effects upon the mind" Frederick Law Olmsted (1828 - 1903) I agree. And I believe these Park dwellers do also -- A stranger -- friends & family -- leisurely strolling & biking. Wolf Lake.
At the peaceful scene of a stranger, family & friends, strolling & biking through the Park. Wolf Lake.
Evening was Breaking
Breaking over the, low & brownish, still-waters of a drained Lagoon in Jackson Park.
