Lake Robinson is a lovely little lake which is special when the light is just right. Here the clouds on a background of blue reflects perfectly on the relatively smooth lake surface.
I thoughtthis was an interesting juxtaposition.
I am looking through some fairly recent images and found the Clinton images which I want to share. There is a visual beauty in the older buildings on the main street, a historical echo in the US flag and Confederate memorial stylus with the intense sky in the background. The side streets and alleys are always have interesting images.
Here are images that while very different from each other are very similar and I am not sure why, it is just something I feel. Maybe it is the parallel lines running from top to bottom, maybe it is the colors, maybe, maybe, maybe. That is one is so great about photography and any other art form.
A few weeks ago I looked out the kitchen window and the dusk colors demanded attention, so I grabbed my camera and went out on the deck to capture the sunset, one of the more interesting ones I have seen.
I was wandering in the heat with Al and decided look up. The clouds were awe-inspiring. If you like the black and white interpretation you can appreciate the structure and texture of the image. If you like color,, you might be attracted by the blues, whites and greens.
Museums usually have a nice dining area and the Art Institute may have one of the best with good food and great views of Chicago.
