Not actually images of food, but images from my walks during my lunch break. I’m fortunate to be working along the Chicago River and the weather has been absolutely fabulous lately! Take a look:
This is the medallion in my elevator, actually. I’m fond of it.
I love flowers. Never know what they’re called, but I love ’em.
This is actually a shot of the train platform in the morning before work; this is one of the stations that’s at street level (they’re in the more residential areas as opposed to downtown, where it’s either the elevated “L” or a subway). (We still call the subway the “L”, go figure.)
I love this view in the morning! We zoom over it pretty fast, but I would love to have one of the houses on the bank and a little dock so I could take my boat up and down.
The parking structure is almost all gone. Looks like a scene from some big space exploration, like a robot lost a bucket or something.
Trump tower is in the center. You can’t really see it very well (my camera on my phone doesn’t have a zoom), but the metal superstructure at the top is a crane for the window washing crew. !!!! D00d. I will never complain about my day job again! Sheesh!
I love this one. It isn’t great from a composition standpoint, but it captures everything I like about my lunch walks: the flowers (these weird cabbage rose things that look like colored Brussels sprouts, huh?) and the water with the boats.
This is a prior shot of the demolition, where you can still see the building, parts of it. This was just 2 weeks ago. It’s startling how fast a brick structure can just disappear.
I love they have mint planted along the river!
More greenery. This is right in the midst of downtown, too! (See the next shot for context.)
This is the bridge by my office, and you can see the river and flower edging. Cool, no?
I love reading signs about things; it makes me feel more like I know what’s going on.
MINT! It has lovely purple flowers, too. I just love how exuberant this plant is. ROWR!
