Day 162: A Little Bit of Everything Tree

I'm still trying to find my balance after a very difficult June so my photos have been sporadic at best. I was lucky that the one picture I took today was actually a wonderful mix of patterns and colors.

Day 161: Storm Clouds

We got totally slammed by a wave of storms in Illinois today so I was happy to see these ones moving on

Day 159: Smug

I am one of the few who like pigeons because of their attitude...in Chicago, they make it clear it's their sidewalk and you're lucky they let you use it :)

Day 158: Catch Up Time

I'm still trying to get my balance after the past two weeks so although I've been taking pictures every day, sometimes I'm just not up for posting on the blog. So welcome to photopalooza....4 days for the price of 1!

On my way to work on Thursday...I liked the contrast between dark and light.

The aftermath of a severe storm that rolled through Chicago Friday afternoon. I took this picture down the street from where I work. It wasn't until I got home that I learned our power was out...because of a equipment glitch and not the storm oddly enough.

 One positive thing that came out of being without electricity is that I wasn't sitting in front of my computer and missing out on this sunset Saturday night.

I need to get out of the house more for a Sunday morning walk...I miss sights like this when I"m in a hurry to get to work. But happy dance...we have electricity again!

Day 151: Braver Than I Am

I'm not much for swimming or deep pools of water so when I see people getting into tiny little boats voluntarily like this I have to admire them .

Day 150: Tunnel

With everything going on right now with my family, I like the visual reminder... there's light at the end of the darkness. Things will look brighter someday.
