Oak Woods Cemetery.
High Rise/Low Rise.
This building on the 7400 block of South Shore Drive is the tallest building and the last tall building on the south Lakefront.
It is right on the Lake and one can probably get a lot of great shots of the morning Sun pushing its head out of the Lake and since it is so tall one can also get a lot of great shots of the evening Sunset in the western skies.
It's right on the Lake and some years the water level of the Lake is up and some years its down. I can recall that one ferocious Winter storm covered most of the cars in the parking lot behind the building with thick coats of ice. It was an eerie scene and very pretty -- if it was not your car. It didn't melt for almost 3 weeks since it was below freezing for over 2 weeks. The residents wanted the City to build a retaining wall - mostly with everybody's tax money who didn't live on the Lake. It started a big fight at City Hall.
Overpass & Flowers
Overpass on Columbus Drive. You gotta love how the architecture of the Loop is decorated with flowers.
The Curtain Pin
The large window of her Beauty Shop - which was on the first floor of the two story building - was decorated with 12 inch wide different colored ribbons running from the ceiling to the floor. She obviously wanted her personal touch of her shop to be on full display.
It was kinda cute & womanliness, but I was drawn to what may have been a window of her residence on the second floor -- especially the window with the curtains full of a burnt-orange evening sun. The window had a mysteriousness about it, as though the bedroom behind it had one of those big brass beds like in Bob Dylan's song "Lay Lady Lay"
I imagine that she was one of those type of women that is attractive, mysterious & graceful as those curtains -- and also, beyond mysteriousness, she was probably very manipulative of femininity and sensuality. I remember the area but not the street name. But I will find my way back just to see what has changed and maybe get a different shot.
About to drive under the overpass on Columbus Drive with the Aqua Building peeking out round the corner.
On the Riverfront at Canal Street.
