Blanket Abstract Art
I was walking the bike trail at the bend of Lake Shore Drive at 67th. A woman with a baby-stroller & two toddlers were playfully looking over the wall at the Lake. They were standing at the very spot I wanted to take a few shots from. They were gone when I returned to the spot and this pretty throw-blanket was in the middle of the trail. I looked for them thinking that this blanket dropped from the stroller, but they were nowhere to be found. I left it there. I was thinking she would eventually return for the blanket. I also thought that the colorful blanket made a beautiful abstract picture, with the cement as it's frame.
In Steelworkers Park - a salute to the "thousands of families" of Steelworkers -- who through hard work earned themselves a part of the American Dream. Their Dreams ended in 1992 when the Plants closed. Another Dream, on this land where the long "great walls" still stands was conceived in the early years of this Century. In March of 2016 -- The Workers -- to be -- were abandoned again. 87th & Lake Shore Drive.

On this cold, rainy day in March, I'm thinking about a bright, sunny day in April, full of fields of Tulips & Dandelions.
One Man's Castle
Quote: "A man's home is his Castle" By English jurist, member of Parliament, Sir Edward Coke. (1552-1634) Coke used the phrase in several of his writings & rulings from his legal treatise,The Institute of the Laws of England. (1628) Coke's use helped establish the general legal principle that no one may enter a person's home without permission. Shot somewhere far-South on the far-Eastside of Chicago.

Reva & David
Reva & David Logan Center for the Arts at the University of Chicago. The Center consist of two lower ultra-modern buildings and this 11 stories tower. The Center is from a gift of 35 million dollars given by Reva and David Logan in 2007. The U of C is not a sprawling campus. The University is sort of locked in by Washington Park on the west and Jackson Park on the east so many new buildings - in my humble opinion - have to go vertical. Visit the website of Reva & David to learn of the many great things that happens in this magnificent Center.
