This image is of the The Rookery Light Court in downtown Chicago.  The building is one of the Windy City's earliest commercial skyscrapers and Frank Lloyd Wright was one of the structure's main architects.  Anyway, it's a delightful place to visit and tours are available that allow access to photograph this spectacular feature.  And, since this shot would make a very challenging jigsaw puzzle, I added the pieces to provide that effect.  Don't get dizzy.

Dynamic Horizon

Recently, while inside the aircraft, I captured this gorgeous silhouette of the wing and dynamic horizon in the background.  Although I snapped the photo with my iPhone and didn't have the opportunity to clean the window smudges left by previous passengers, it's a delightful image with great lines and color.  In addition, this time of day always captivates me as the light slowly fades to these dreamy tones of red, orange, pink and blue.  A calm settles over the land -- ahhhhhhh.

"You can look at a picture for a week
 and never think of it again.
You can also look at a picture for a second
 and think of it all your life."

May the stuffing be tasty and turkey plump.
May the potatoes and gravy be without a lump.
May the yams be delicious and pies win a prize.
And may Thanksgiving dinner stay off of your thighs.

Hanging Around

For many in these parts, we've had at least two minor snowfalls; however, for leaf-lovers like me, there are still some gorgeous works of art underfoot and on a few branches.  And, even though I really dislike the white stuff, the early-morning scene with white highlights sprinkled on these deep red oak leaves was truly delightful.  Thank you, Mother Nature.

"And the sun took a step back,
The leaves lulled themselves to sleep, and
Autumn was awakened."
