Chicago is rockin’ autumn

Habits are easy to pick up, and I have my share. But earlier this week the absolutely perfect fall weather earlier inspired me to skip the gym in favor of good old fashioned wandering. The first day, I was no sooner out the door than I ran into my friends Sara and Esmé (above), who were on their own walkabout to check out the neighborhood Halloween decorations. Later that week, I ventured east to the lakefront to check out the blood-red ivy leaves on the Lake Shore Drive overpass at Bryn Mawr, which I had spotted while driving on Lake Shore Drive a few days earlier. They were even more breathtaking in person. Today it rained so it was back to the gym.

Thanks Esmé and Sara.

  1. Fall is the best time of the year to decorate! Even better than Christmas because nature provides so much rich vibrant color. It’s the best time of the year to take photos. These are all great…..besides the fact that Chicago is photogenic any time!! Thanks for sharing!

  2. let’s just hope for a fairly dry autumn, those colors are not too fabulous all wet and clumpy on the ground.

    thanks for sharing the photos.

  3. That was just last week! Your photos make me nostalgic for last week.

  4. There are some very beautiful photographs in this post. <3
