One of the things I love the most about Chicago, aside from the amazing architecture, is that you don’t need to go far to surround yourself with tranquility. Just like yesterday’s Photo of the Day, “In the Quiet Moments,” this beautiful field of heather and wildflowers is just steps away from the city. Walk the path and you’ll spot any number of beautiful birds, hear the buzzing of the bees as they fly by and can listen to the stream of the water surrounding the garden. It makes me want to settle down with a picnic.
This one isn’t quite finished. Just like yesterday’s photograph, this is one half of the collaboration I’m currently working on and I’m so excited for the final piece. Keep an eye out here over the next few weeks and share in the excitement.
“A happy life must be to a great extent a quiet life, for it is only in an atmosphere of quiet that true joy dare live.” – Bertrand Russell
I have been missing in action again, for quite an extended period of time but it is for good cause. I previously mentioned a collaboration I am working on and I am happy to report we are working steadily towards being able to introduce the final product shortly.
Today’s Photo of the Day, “In the Quiet Moments,” is half of one piece in the collaboration and I thought I would stop and give you a sneak peek. I won’t go in to details as to what we’re working on… who doesn’t love a nice surprise… but I will say it’s had me very excited over the last few weeks.
Taken downtown in the quiet hours of the early morning, the photograph is one of my new favorites. When we walked through the courtyard next to the Art Institute, it was as if all the traffic of Michigan Avenue disappeared. There wasn’t a bus or cab to be heard, the quick footsteps of the 9 to 5’ers were silent. It was peaceful and serene.
I’m looking forward to sharing more over the next few weeks!
