Ghost of Xmas Past
Eastside of Chicago on a bitter, cold January night -- silent -- like Christmas Night.
Through Sand & Ice
When the Lake level's high -- poles that support breakwalls are below water. 67th Street breakwater.
In The Wild
I need warm thoughts and a warm shot of wildflowers for a brutally cold night in January. Jackson Park.
Lakeside Marketing Center
8555 South Green Bay Ave -- off of the new Lake Shore Drive. Although construction has not started, if you're interested, it's always wise to check things out early. One can always save money by getting in on a project early.
Large gap near the end of the 4 blocks long wall of the -- long gone US Steel Plant off of the Lake at 85th.
Rain Storm Comin'
Looking out at the far horizon from the bend of South Shore Drive at 67th Street.
Through Many Winters
This car has been here for many years. Some guys can't let go. I think it's an Oldsmobile. One day I'll stop for a closer look because I really want to know the name, year and model. Hyde Park.
Some - like me - complain about Winter. Others use Winter for pleasure. Wolf Lake. William W Powers, State Fish & Wild Life Area.
Snapshot From December
I could hear the Gulls occasionally screaming as they were looping & gliding. And the little tugboat-that-could made a churning-water noise while pushing the Big Ship to the edge of the pier. On this quiet, cold evening -- other than those sounds -- I heard only my slow breathing. And the swift clicking of the camera's shutter moving. Calumet River.
Snapshot From December (2)
A lot happens from this boat-ramp leading into Jackson Park Inner Harbor. In Summer, trucks & cars back down the ramp to release jet skiers and canoes into the water. Ice fishermen walk down this ramp with tents, drills and large plastic buckets when the lagoon is frozen over. Sometimes in Winter there's no ice or snow on the lagoon. And sometimes, like on this day -- there are both.
