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.
The Lake is right beyond the fence at the end of this short, one block street off of South Shore Drive around 72nd Street.
Sunshiny Winter Day
In a season known for strings of dark, gray days -- no matter how cold it is, I treasure a bright sunshiny day in Winter. Looking over the Lake's blue skies at the entrance of Lake Shore Drive from South Shore Drive at 79th Street.

Let's face it. They got Us! If only they could talk.
57th Street Beach
January 2013. 57th and Lake Shore Drive.
Bridges of Lake Shore Drive
There are attractive architectural Lamp Posts on LSD bridges. I really like this one. 31st Street Bridge,
Therapy for a Winter Day
It works for me. I change my desktop backgrounds -- usually to memories of another season. Jackson Park.
