Afternoon nap, West Side, Chicago….
“So, we’ve been commissioned to create a public statue of Louis Pasteur… how should we portray the ‘Father of Microbiology’ – bold and visionary?”
“Nah, I say gloomy and pessimistic”
“Okay, let’s get to work!”
Hope for peace: the flags at Malcolm X College, West Side, Chicago.
From yesterday evening: water and shadow and light….
Although I rarely see Blue-winged Teal, I happened to spot one both yesterday and today, on two different bodies of water. In each case it was an individual Teal hanging out with a Mallard, dipping their heads under water to find food. This is a photo of today’s Teal, on Salt Creek just above Graue Mill dam in DuPage County, Illinois.
Some blossoms I noticed this afternoon on the trees outside my office….
