Sometimes I like to go to my stash and revert way, way back to the fun of my finger-painting & coloring-book days.
Mysterious things are on the Shore. What's the story here? Behind La-Rabida Children Hospital.
Serenity In Baby-Blue
The Lake off of Calumet Park
Kenwood or Hyde Park.
To Indiana With Love
I know I've seen this banner before. But now it represents a "topical issue" with the Governor, State Legislature and demonstrations going on around the Country. This First Unitarian Church is on the University of Chicago's campus.
Arrangement By Nature
I've always had an eye for the beauty of Nature, but without a doubt, photography refines & diversifies one's taste. Mainly, I believe, because we're always looking for a shot. I'm surprised I haven't tailgated somebody because it only takes a split second. So I always remind myself to concentrate on the traffic and pull over if I must. There are some sunrises, sunsets and other shots I just have to miss. Washington Park Lagoon.
Untypical Chicago Landscape
But Chicago nevertheless. The Lake is about 100 yards beyond that horizon at 82nd and Lake Shore Drive.
Run In Peace
A salute to the "world's fastest man" of his day and "arguably" the greatest Olympic Athlete -- on the 35th year of his death. In 1935, running for Ohio State, his achievement of setting 3 world-records and tying another in less than an hour at the Big Ten track meet has been called the "greatest 45 minutes ever in sports. At the 1936 Olympics in Berlin Germany, Jessie won four gold medals in the 100, 200 and the 4x100 meters races and the long-jump competition. His supposedly snub by Hitler at the Games made Jesse Owens a hero beyond the world of sports. Oak Woods Cemetery.
Before Flowers Bloom
Like all of us, in Spring I'm waiting on that explosion of colorful blooms. You know -- large faced plants like giant sunflowers, wide, green water-lily pads and colorful tulips looking like a cluster of long-stemmed wine glasses. And I'm also attracted to this scene -- a scene of tall bloomless plants with that lithe,simplicity of Japanese Art. Captured on an incline along a rail line.
Campers are a different bred. The 63rd Street inner-harbor is one easily accessible harbor where ice fisherman and campers hang out during the Winter months. However, the quiet-time days at this spot are numbered because it's Spring and the boat Season is on it's way: loud motor-boats, jet skiers, picnics and games on the shore and parties at the harbor house. But for now, enjoy the serenity camper.
