Woke up this morning with the first dusting of snow in Chicago.
With a forecast of more to come. I’m SO not ready for this!!!

Gloomy eyes. Dreary day.
Incredible new street art at The Purple Hour on Damen.
Wonderfully moody imagery by Daniel Wilson.

Hard to believe it is already October?! How did that happen so fast? I still like to “think” that it’s Summer… but the cold weather & strong winds definitely say Fall.

A windy morning provided some gusty fun along the lakefront. Waves were crashing up over the shoreline. Wind whipping every which way. Seemed like it was “always” A headwind!!! But still, a beautiful ride with some nice photo-ops down on Chicago’s Navy Pier.

My chariot awaits…. ready for a very windy ride home with the flags flying horizintally!

Beautiful day on Chicago’s Navy Pier.
How much do I want to be out playing in the sun today?!

Sweeping sunrise colors across the lakefront & skyline.

Clear skies. Beautiful colors. Nice silhouettes.
And quite a few waves crashing over the banks and up onto the bike trail.
A beautiful sunrise ride before heading up to Madison
for what will be a very exciting weekend!

Hey, at least we had sun for a few hours before this cloud front moved in.
You can almost see Tom Skilling’s row of dashed lines & triangles up in the sky
right along that line of clouds!

Another cloudy start to the day. Good sunrise potential that was never quite fulfilled. All those gray clouds never quite finding their time to shine in a blaze of sunrise colors. So close

The Chicago Skyline looked pretty great though…

Well, after yesterday’s storms, the clouds were still hanging out and the winds were quite strong. I was at camp and in the studio ALL day yesterday… apparently the storm was worse than I thought?!
