    Sad, Maddie? Why? I'm sure you will visit quite a few of them...

    Charms strike the sight, but merit wins the soul.

    Hey, there're some familiar sights. When were you out here in Chicago Grace?

    Here's another from Niagara Falls. An interesting picture, and I should give credit to my wife for taking it. That's me in silhouette.

    Funny. Actually that waist high railing is all that separates one from going over the falls to death.

    Thank you. I took these at the cemetary last spring. When I go to plant flowers on my mother's grave, I bring my camera and take some pictures as well. The cemetary is old (at least by American standards..early 1700's) and some of the artwork is amazing. If you seperate out the fact that it is a gravestone, some of these monuments are very interesting.





    My mum really loved johnny jump ups and pansies so my sister and I planted some very pretty ones for her.

    August must have been a nice time to be out here. Yes, I'm a student here in Chicago, though I still spend most of the summer back in California. I live down south in the Hyde Park neighborhood, not terribly far from the Museum of Science and Industry. I've been walking by there sometimes when it looks just like that in the light. You captured it well. I know the spot where you took that Sears Tower shot too. I really like that one. It looks like your pic. of the lake is facing south. Did you by chance walk out to the point near the Museum of Science and Industry? There's a great view northward of the city skyline from there.
