Another oldie, this one was shot in 2003 from a window in my sister's old loft on the seventh floor of a building in Chicago's South Loop.
Correction: I must have read the date wrong on the photo in yesterday's post. I'm pretty sure there weren't leaves on the trees in Chicago in February.

Today's mail brought a box with over 600 old, boring postcards I bought on Ebay (I collect boring and tacky postcards, but also use them for collages and other art projects). While looking through these cards, I found this one, and was reminded of my visit to the very spot that photo was taken.
It was a cold, windy, mostly cloudy day when I visited, and I was underdressed for weather that at about 55 degrees fahrenheit seemed way too chilly for July. The clouds obscured Mt. Hood, so I didn't get the postcard views. It was still a beautiful area, however, and the idealized, color saturated view in the postcard doesn't do it justice.
