Jealousy

Jealousy Do animals feel emotion? Do they feel joy and sadness, regret and elation or even jealousy and envy? This little fella eyed the bigger mound next to him with what I’d swear was envy. Does anyone know what kind of animal he is? Pictured in Chicago’s Lincoln Park Zoo. Later.. if you wondered what […]

Grooming the Monkey

Grooming the Monkey When you’ve had a hard morning climbing branches and swinging from tree to tree, what better way to relax than have your mother run her fingers through your fur and pick out the ticks and insects. Pictured in Lincoln Park Zoo, Chicago.

Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo

Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo Protests at Lincoln Park Zoo Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago seems to be the centre of protests by animal welfare activists on an on-going basis. Conditions for the animals in the zoo must be exceptionally bad as animal deaths are reported regularly. It’s a shame, […]

Lion .. King of Lincoln Park Zoo

Lion .. King of Lincoln Park Zoo Lion .. King of Lincoln Park Zoo On the 5th day of our trip to Chicago, Darren took us to Lincoln Park Zoo. I had been there already back in 2003 but this time it was a lot more interesting! I got some wonderful shots of the animals […]

Arrival of the L

Arrival of the L I love capturing motion and stillness in one frame and shooting underground in a subway station is perfect because: low light, fast moving train with bright internal lights, waiting passengers. I think I took this in one of the stations under State Street, Chicago. Have a great time at the blog […]

Fixing up the Apple Store

Fixing up the Apple Store Workers pictured in the Apple Store Magnificent Mile, Chicago. The top of the image is the front and side of the store. This is the store in which I was asked not take photos in 2003!

Small Figures

Small Figures Small figures run for cover to get out of the downpour. You’ll be glad to hear that this is the last of my shots from this square for the time being! Pictures of the day: mute, Eric, Iced Coffee, nowords, Gareth Marlow, Learning to see, Mystery Me

Not happy in the rain

Not happy in the rain Moments after my previous shot another group ran for cover from the downpour! Definitely not “singing in the rain” this morning!

Grab your bag and run!

Grab your bag and run! I’m not sure where this is. We sheltered from a very heavy rain storm and watched while people ran for cover from all over. Thankfully the storm didn’t last too long and I wandered to Millennium Park!

Old Navy’s Fred

Old Navy’s Fred If you wander into the Old Navy Store on State Street in Chicago you may bump into Fred. He has worked there for years, he’s very patient, nice and accommodating and did his level best to help us get the best bargains while shopping! This isn’t a great photo, it was a […]

Please don’t feed the pigeons

Please don’t feed the pigeons The sign obviously hasn’t worked! This was on South Wabash, Chicago around the same time this photo was taken.

Feeding The Duck

Feeding The Duck Urban ducks and wild fowl are luckier than their country brethren. People think they are cute and feed them! This is the same duck I posted before at the Crown Fountains, Chicago.

Smile Please! You’re on Camera!

Smile Please! Pictured by the Crown Fountains, Chicago. The guy in the middle was doing handstands in the water earlier and they were having a great time! He’s also pictured in this photo looking at one of the fountains!

Religion isn’t free

Religion isn’t free A preacher on State Street, just outside Old Navy. I seem to recall he was there way back in 2003 too. I didn’t listen to anything he said but as I passed he pushed a sheet of paper into my hand. I made to take it but he wanted a quarter for […]
