8 September 2012, Day 95, Pt. 2


A dear friend recently mentioned Auggie Wren, Harvey Keitel's character in the movie Smoke (1995), who takes a picture of the same Brooklyn street corner every morning at exactly 8:00. And so, in the end, i decided to embrace the fact that i too take pictures of the same places over and over again -- though not with Auggie's reliability and rigor -- and go ahead and post today's shots of the lake and the Chicago and Evanston skylines.The day was too spectacularly beautiful not to. The sky and lake were gorgeous; the sun was warm, the breeze was cool; visibility was excellent; and i got to have a conversation with a very nice stranger that included the word "spinnaker"-- a thing that, regrettably, rarely happens to me.

These picture perfect photos bring back a lot of fond memories. When I lived in Chicago, I used to come to this beach to enjoy the Lake's beauty. Thanks for sharing!
