WEEK 38 “STREET SCENES”

A group of young people were sitting on a wall in Grant Park with the same Tee Shirt on. I asked what they were doing. One of the young men third from left said he was starting his own clothes Line. The brand will be “Confidence”. They were nice to let me take their photo.

The other photo is a young man sitting on a bench waiting for his family to return from the gardens.

The young lady in Millennium Park was posing in front of the water fountain and having fun with her friends.IMG_2359 CONFIDENCE

WEEK 37 “STOP ACTION”

As my husband and I were walking in downtown Chicago, we went into Grant Park. To our surprise there was a skate boarding contest going on. We stopped and watched for a time and met a mother whose son was in the contest. Chet ask if she was concerned about her son getting hurt and she said her son had many scars to show for his taking part in this sport. The announcer was giving information on the skate boarders from different states. These were all boys and  showed lots of bravery in the tricks they were doing on their boards.

WEEK# 16 “FRAME IN A FRAME”

While visiting Nashville, Tennessee we went to a fourth of July festival in a park on the water. This sign on the side of a truck caught my eye. There were  many things to see but the rains came and we had to run under cover so I missed a lot of good shots, yet it was interesting to see all the families and people gathering to enjoy the day. We had planned to stay a few days in Nashville but the weather forecast was not good or well next time.
