Steps & Stones
Summer fishing spot. Lagoon off bridge between the Japanese Garden and Museum of Science & Industry.
Lunch in the Park
On their way South before Winter, these Canadians stop for lunch in Jackson Park.
Sapling with a View
A loner along the Natural Growth area of 63rd Street Beach on a chilly & windy early December day.
Even with my Audubon field guide, I couldn't come up with a name for this common wildflower on the bank of Wolf Lake. Need a little help?
Lagoon of lost Balls
Walking bridge on Jackson Park Golf Course. I was not on the course. This was shot through the tall chain-link fence along 67th street across the golf course showing the bend around Jackson Park Harbor. Lake Shore Drive ends at 67th and turning left you're on South Marquette which runs pass LaRabida Children Hospital until it ends two blocks at the stop light at 67th Street -- where South Shore Drive begins. South Shore Drive ends at 79th Street and turning east you're on the new two mile extension -- which again becomes Lake Shore Drive.
West of Eden
Ancient Sunset of Crepuscular Rays.
But too long and not rolling fast enough. I was stuck in a line of big trucks spewing fumes. I got out for a fresh air shot. 130th street industrial road.
Street lights, Stop lights, Sun light. At a traffic stop looking west.
Late Fall scene of a Summer Garden. Driving north on Stony Island around 67th Street is the bend onto S. Cornell Drive that cars take to get to Lake Shore Drive. You'll pass by this spot which is on the east side.
Late Fall scene from a Summer Garden. This garden is not easy to find because it's tucked away in the southwest tip of Jackson Park Golf Course in an area that used to be "in the rough." In fact, I took the shot while standing on the mound surrounding a golf hole. I guess it serves the community on the west side of Stony Island which is in walking distance. I believe it's for growing mostly crops, but some flowers also.
