Now this post is late (or perhaps early for January 2nd), but I went on a walk around Chicago’s Gold Coast neighborhood and I couldn’t wait to post these lovely Christmas doors.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Sea

Click on the image to see the Spark webpage I made.

Each week Cee of Cee’s Photography challenges bloggers with a fun prompt. This week we’re to find photos of subjects that feature sea-inspired posts, i.e. those that are teal, aqua, sea foam, turquoise, blue or of water.  I just went with photos from my trip to Australia.

This week I experimented with Adobe Spark’s web page design. I uploaded the images and added some text. It was easy to use and fun to play with. Best of all it’s free.
Join the fun.

Chicago’s Gold Coast

images of Chicago

When I picked this up at the library I didn’t catch the smaller type: Images of America. So I thought there would be more text about Chicago’s Gold Coast. Once I figured out the subject of this book I appreciated the wide selection of old photos of grand houses in this Chicago district. Images of America upped my understanding of how the city looked in the late 19th century and beyond.

Here’s a few of the homes featured.
