Fall From Grace
Trees are very sturdy, but also graceful. And when you walk through the woods and Forest Preserves you'll always come across a large or a small inclined tree that has lost its fierce battle with the wind.
A Nice Day Out
For walking her dog -- and, of course, for shooting photos in Washington Park.
What particular issue was on the artist's mind? About this inner strength that applies to and is of help to many things in one's journey through life -- Faith, Ambition, Love? The front Street is Garfield Blvd about 4 blocks to Cottage Grove.

Pondlet In January
Washington Park after the first melting of January snow -- And I'm bracing for the next round.
Bird of Prey
On a snowy day. This imposing carving atop a tree trunk is about 12 ft. high. It's off LSD near 63rd Street Beach. I was fortunate enough -- as were many -- to observe the artist doing this very artistic work.

Ordinary Cloudy Day
There are glorious sunshiny days, beautiful snowy days, awesome stormy days, but some days are considered ordinary and maybe forgettable -- until you photograph them, capture them in that frozen split-second -- and then you can really observe that day, study everything within the frame: the earth, the sky, water and trees that are alive, dead, fallen and some limbs hanging over your frame -- and then you realized that it was not just an ordinary day -- but one that spiritual people always speak of saying "Every day that the Lord has made is a good day." Shot on a day in Jackson Park when I was looking for a shot and found nothing extraordinary but shot some commonplace scenes anyway -- which I didn't feel at the time, although many days later on one of those raw, very cold days we've had this January, when I didn't leave out of the house, I took a long look at this shot of that ordinary cloudy day and I began to like it.
