The opened Cass St. bridge frames Harrah's casino. After Chicago, Joliet has the most movable bridges of any city.

I love nature, as you can tell from my images! I believe when the light is right,all things have an inherent beauty to them,and that is what I try to capture. By no means am I a professional, and I limit my editing to slight adjustments in color and contrast....no HDR for me!
