a new year, and new beginnings

Here are a couple of photos from the past, it being too cold just now for foraging in fields for new photos.

This was taken indoors in Chicago, using typical winter indoor plants. Guess I was yearning for blossoms and greenery.

Also from Chicago… It was late March and extreme warming flooded the area, with dramatic results in all the parks. This was taken in a tiny South Loop (downtown) park squeezed between two old building.

The entire area had been heavily occupied by printers and associated trades until the 40’s and 50’s, so park designers chose to use type face on the seating blocks, using neighbourhood street names as they would have looked to those  historic typesetters.
