A Cameo of February
Some of the few colors of February and a view that's looking towards the Loop. This bank is one of my favorite spots to place my folding-chair in Summertime. It overlooks a Motor Boats filled Jackson Park Inner Harbor.
Hoping all was Well
I still get that baffling feeling about how did this happen? I uploaded a similar shot of an auto turned upside down. I'm playing traffic cop. On both sites there were no common signs of a two car, pole or tree collision. No spread of debris from a two car accident, but it was clearly hit. It looks more like it was dropped off of a towing truck. Anyway, I hope none of the passengers were seriously hurt or killed. Sometimes people get lucky -- crawl out and just walk away. East 83rd street.
June on my Mind
My thoughts this long Winter, aren't of Spring. Most times a midwestern Spring looks & feels too much like Winter. I'm daydreaming sights, smells and sounds of June. June's well into Summer, but before the dog days -- like this unforgettable day. Around 80 degrees -- clouds touching the ground -- that green smell of a wide field of crabgrass, chickweed, common plantain, creeping charlie and tall thistles. The air was filled with buzzing sounds, chirping sounds and the sounds of a nearby expressway. I don't need color to see the color of this day again. In my head, I can see it, smell it & hear it. Besides -- I've already uploaded a color shot I called "Where the Earth meets the Sky."

The Color Russet
Driving by, and elevated on a bridge, I couldn't help but stare at this long and deep tract of land filled with tall grasses. I saw beauty in the expanse. its color was a blended beige & brown which I saw as a shade of brown called russet. So I came back around to get a few shots of the scene -- russet & rustic -- running all the way to distant trees. Far South Forest Preserve.
