Yesterday was Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photo Walk which Catherine and I took part in....fun, fun, fun day. I plan on a big "show and tell" later. We stopped and split a hamburger (we split because it was advertized as 1/2 lb burger), chatted for awhile with the other participants, and then headed home. We decided that the 1/2 lb burger was really a 1/4 lb burger resulting in a spot for some dessert. OK, now where do we go for dessert??....."The Cheesecake Factory", ofcourse. Saturday evening is not the best time to go to a popular restaurant like "The Cheesecake Factory" unless you enjoy standing and waiting and watching other people standing and waiting. But we did and after hemming & humming over which flavor pie we both wanted, Catherine settled on Carrot Cake Cheesecake and I choose Pumpkin Pecan Cheesecake. You could see me shamelessly licking my fork after each bite. Both slices were tastes of paradise. As we walked out of the restaurant, we realized that we had lingered so long in the restaurant that it was already dark outside. I turned around and captured this shot....I very rarely take night shots, but loved the look of this building.
October will be over quickly and the days will become hazy memories....
"Angels and Demons" came to mind when I saw this. Actually this was part of the Honore` (an early Chicago developer) monument, just a glimpse at what we found on our Photo Trip to Graceland Cemetery in the heart of Chicago.
Had to add a 2nd "movie shot"...."Easy Rider". Went to the Arboretum this morning because it is 1) in the 60's, 2) blue sky, 3) very little wind just about a perfect day after a "hard" frost last night. The colors are changing rapidly. This gentleman was stopped for a brief rest and as I walked by him, I asked if I could take his picture. He loved it...you can see by the smile on his face!!
Coffee....I don't think I need to say anymore.
This is really stretching "brown" but I couldn't help myself. We walked a few blocks around Wrigley Field yesterday after the Photo Walk...great part of the city with rehab houses, iron fences, tiny front yards, big porches, ridiculous rents. This guy was standing in a front yard behind an iron fence with a big sign that said "BEWARE OF DOG". Must have been intended for another dog, because this guy was a sweetheart, check out the missing front tooth and those big brown eyes.
So that's my take on Ashley Sisk's Scavenger Hunt Sunday. Stop on over and give some blog lovin' this week.
