Suppose you're a dead flower and you're looking for a great place to view a bokeh sunset against the Chicago skyline. This is a place that I would recommend.

Please, please, please view on black (press L).

A rainy night along Michigan Avenue in Chicago. No tourists, no cars, just softly falling rain and shimmering lights.

Better on black...

This is one of my favorite places to view the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), from the south overlooking the Chicago River.

Another night fence taken a few weeks back. It looks pretty light because there are quite a few lamps around. This particular area by Shedd Aquarium was attractive because it had so much untouched powder. Some unusual lights by the aquarium were vaguely reminescent of the aurora borealis.

Of course the only thing I like more than marveling at a smooth expanse of snow is being the first one to plow through it...

Much better on black, of course...

I've always been fond of old brick and cobblestone streets. I think of the hands that laid the bricks down one by one, creating streets full of character and beauty. In Chicago most of these streets diseappeared long ago--either torn up or unceremoniously buried beneath layers of asphault. And yet this was not the final chapter for all of these streets. After decades of confinement some of the bricks began to emerge from their cold graves. Once more could they bask in the warmth of the sun, delight in the voices of children walking by, feel the kiss of falling rain, and sleep peacefully under the light of the moon.
