Just a few photos here from my foray downtown to the Art Institute on a cold, overcast day.

 


Walk Down Any Street

Fantasy Roof House

Fantasy Roof House

Do you ever walk down the street in an upper class neighborhood and wonder what goes on inside the beautiful homes?  Well, this isn’t just any street or collection of streets.  It is the Frank Lloyd Wright historic district in Oak Park, IL.  Most of the famous homes are on Forest Avenue, just south of Chicago Avenue.  The homes not designed by Wright make better photographic subjects because the famous ones have been photographed a zillion times.  I had good weather, some fall colors and decorations for Halloween in place on some of the homes.


The Brookfield Zoo

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life

Some of these photo don’t look like they were made at a zoo, and most are about water.  What do expect from me?  The final 5 photos were shot at the Chicago Botanical Gardens the next day.  Both the Tree of Life and Lilly Pads were nominated for an award at Nikongear forum, but did not win.

It seemed that fall colors were escaping from the turning leaves and winding up in all sorts of places.
