Almost Halloweeny

Almost Halloweeny

A couple of things I don’t have too many images of are cute kittens and jack-o-lanterns (Is it true that the circumference of a jack-o-lantern divided by its diameter is defined to be pumpkin pi?).  I did find a few pumpkins though, and you’ll have to imagine the faces carved into them.

Autmn River

Autmn River

Scene of the Kankakee River a few days ago.  A little obvious manipulation to enhance the fall colors.

One Red Tree

One Red Tree

This hasn’t been a spectacular year for fall foliage, although there have been a few isolated examples, like this tree by the Kankakee River a few days ago.

Song for the Unsung

Song for the Unsung

World War II veterans finally got their memorial in Washington DC and they certainly deserve it.  But there are all sorts of groups that put in their service that don’t receive the appreciation they deserve.  This is an image of a memorial to workers who lost their lives during explosions at the Joliet Arsenal making munitions in 1942 and 1945.  It is located by the entrance to the Abraham Lincoln National Cemetery by Elwood, Illinois.  It is nice that at least this group got some recognition.

Another image from Chicago.  I like the relections in the water.

I’ve been real disappointed with the fall colors this year, so I decided to look at some images from summertime. These just popped out.

Stadium Shadows

Stadium Shadows

An image I made at Memorial Stadium down in Champaign out by the columns where most people don’t bother to go.

Grass Patterns

Grass Patterns

This is another image that I made for my collection of patterns and backgrounds and such. Like a lot of these images, I find it interesting on its own.

Moonrise – Sears Tower

Moonrise - Sears Tower

It wasn’t the Willis Tower when I made this image. I’ve been making a series of images of the tower from different places in the city. It doesn’t have to be the star of the image, but it appears in so many places around Chicago.

Gathering

Gathering

This just makes me think of people sitting around a campfire or something and just chatting away. I’m amazed that I can anthropomorphize a drinking fountain.
