Nature and Progress In Harmony
This is what can happen if you'll open your
mouth and put down your foot.

Change Is Inevitable
The barn was once new and red. The tree was
strong and full. There was a big yield from the field. The operative word is "was".
Window To The World
People just weren't enlightened enough to
appreciate what was on the other side.

While just going through Linda Faifer-Flynn's
gallery on barns I was reminded of this shot
that I took almost six years ago on the perfect autumn day. This is an old utility building still
utilized today in New Lenox.
Through the years I've tried deleting the pole, then the truck (which had to stay) and even
tried a black & white treatment. When it's all said and done, this is the way it was shot and
the way it will stay.
Two Faces Have I
This is the second face of the lakefront. The
"let's sit on the wall and get lost in the fog and
time while everyone else is trying to take the
perfect shot of the skyline" face. There are few
places where you can be surrounded by people and still feel a certain seclusion. This

Chicago has a thing for sculptures of historical
figures, along with other subjects. I don't know why, but this is one of my faves, maybe because
I've grown up with it. Like Abe Lincoln in Grant Park and U.S. Grant in Lincoln Park, General
Thaddeus Kosciuszko is always there, guarding Solidarity Drive. I liked it even more
this extremely foggy morning. When most everything seemed hidden from view, this statue was up front and center.
I think it's safe to say when you see these twin towers you're not going to think Abu Dhabi,
Singapore or Paris. They are uniquely Chicago.
