Foggy evening on the way home...

I really like the ethereal and abstract quality of the dark tree trunks and the gray fog.

My little Sweeper passed away last Friday morning.
She was a true friend, as most pets are and I miss her dearly.

At the Post Office...

I was at the Post Office yesterday afternoon to mail a package. The building is one of those old 30s office buildings with two large wall statues mounted against the marble walls. This is one of them. I remember when I was a kid how huge they looked and the how very small I would feel looking up at them. There were always wanted posters up and my best friend and I would stop and look them over. Those are gone now and the mailmen, although large, are not as imposing as they once were.

Walking home...

I moved about a year ago and now it is about a 20 block walk to and from work, instead of the old 8. So, I can't do it both ways everyday, but usually in the evening I'll make the trek home; for the exercise and to see what's going on around town.

Evening sun on the way home...

I like the way the sun glows off of the buildings and the snow covered stairway that is now abandoned. There are older photographs and paintings of Evanston that show El tracks and stairs as they were; when they were still being used. Time passes.
