Break On Through
Okay, so it's not the best of times for riding
a bike, but I still love this sign in Old Town.
A nod to The Doors for the partial title.
Normally, there's nothing remotely interesting enough about my neighborhood to post, but I like the shot and the fact that it's
a color photo.
A thanks to Fleetwood Mac for the title.
Halo of Moisture
NBC-5 Meteorologist Brant Miller refers to that fuzzy look around the moon as a halo of moisture. I caught it through this...this...tower, which is located near the entrance to Burnham Harbor.
"If you'll open your booklet to page..."
Sometimes we see something in the viewfinder that really doesn't translate to the
computer screen well. We see one thing and get another. That's the feeling I got from this one...at first. Then I look at and tweak and get what is basically an overview of the city. I have
them from the Dan Ryan, the Stevie and now,
the Mighty Ike at Damen. I call them my "textbook" photos, or something that might be seen in a seminar booklet or pamphlet. At first, I'm disappointed and then they grow on me.
I don't know what you call it, furthermore I
don't really care. It isn't attractive. I took the
photo only because it blew apart before my
2:00 am, on the side of one of our expressways. The light streaks would be truck traffic
Peace and quiet at 31st & Morgan, Bridgeport.
Loft Series No, 5
Shot, colored and cropped specifically to be displayed large scale on a loft wall. Seating at the Pritzker Pavilion.
Reach For The Sky
This is the west entrance to Watefall Glen in
Lemont on Lemont Road. Another one of those sites that I pass time and again but
this day I was drawn in by the trees and sky.
"F****n' fool got shot"...
...is what a person said as he was walking past me. The fellow on the gurney took three
fatal gun shots to the chest Saturday afternoon in Lawndale. On our way downtown, my wife and I decided to drive through the neighborhoods, maybe there'd be someting interesting to photograph. When one of the two SUVs pictured raced past us at an intersection I wanted to see what the great rush was about. We arrived minutes after it happened.
