DAYDREAMS OF THISTLES

Passageway through golden leaves of Autumn to lingering green leaves of Summer.
ACROSS THE WIDE LAGOON
Museum of Science & Industry, from the bank of a wide, Autumn-dressed Lagoon in Jackson Park.
GONE WITH THE FORECAST
As you can see --- the grass is green, the trees still have a full head of leaves, autumn colors have not retreated, the wind is blowing heavy wet air making me squint my eyes from the biting snow, it is a fun day of roaming around taking pictures. I really enjoyed this one day of early snow --- but mainly because I knew it wouldn't last. Just don't disappoint me for the week of Christmas eve, Old Man Winter. Jackson Park.
A DUSTING OF SNOW
As it should be. November 11th was too early "Old Man Winter." Washington Park.
RODE OFF INTO THE SUNSET
I'm talking about this closed plant around 101 & Cottage. I used to love that great smell while driving by. The chips are still around in some places, but for a person of my discriminating palate, they're not the same. Being made right here, Jays had that fresh, home made taste; whereas Lays tasted like they took a slow train from "Cali" --- Just one man's taste bud's testimony.
COURTSHIP OF FALL & SNOW
November 11th. Something early. It was love at first sight. I know it was for me. Jackson Park Lagoon.
XMAS TREE & MICKEY
Icons on an early snowy evening in November. Museum of Science & Industry.
FALL: LAKESIDE LLC (4)
This 4 or 5 block long canal is where the big ships were moored at the US Steel Plant. In the two weeks since the LSD has been opened, I see more and more fisherman on the banks.

Still waiting to moor another big ship carrying iron ore. The ropes must be over 6 inches round.
