As much as I may try I’m not good enough to truly “express myself” through my photos on a regular basis but occasionally one of my pictures really does capture how I feel about something. This one here is an example of that.
I love spending time along Chicago’s lakeshore. Walking, biking, swimming, kayaking, or just sitting – anything to share a connection with the immensity of lake and sky. Yesterday morning just after sunrise, walking south toward Oak Street Beach, I looked back toward the breakwater at North Avenue and saw this solitary figure doing who knows what – fishing or praying or exercising or just greeting the dawn.
