Tom 365 – June 20, 2016

We are just calling this The Pilsen Popsicle Monster. 

We do not know his purpose or where he came from, but he is watching over 18th Street, frozen treat in hand.

Street art in Chicago on Green Street, just South of Randolph.

A visit to an art gallery in Old Town today. Here are just a couple of the paintings I enjoyed.

It’s late. I’m tired. This is the best picture I took today.

Sepia Piano

Playing with my camera today.

Black and White Piano

Same basic shot in three different color settings.

I think I found the sepia setting the most interesting.

What do you think?

I must be getting old. I forgot to post again yesterday. 

I have spotted this winged metal man a few times on my drive home, but this was the first chance I got to take a closer look. There is no sign letting me know the name of the figure, and I had always assumed it would be the archangel Michael, but now I am not so sure. 

It is quite an interesting sculpture up close.

The face we all made this morning when we saw the snow falling.

Chicago Imitates Starry Night

A phone ap that finally comes in handy.

Thanks to an ap called Dreamscope, my real life picture of Chicago can now imitate famous works of art. ┬áIn this case, it is Van Gogh’s Starry Night.

Here are the two photos side by side.

I am calling this one Cloud Surfer.

There was no information at the base of the statue to tell me the actual name of this sculpture, so I have names it myself.

Located on 35th Street near the Zhou B Art Center, this nameless leaf rider seems to surf the sky.

50 degrees in Chicago today, and I was stuck indoors. Luckily I was able to get out for a quick walk.  A nice stroll through Grant Park, taking a view back at our accommodations for the weekend.
