In Downton Abbey, a PBS TV series, there is an episode where Violet, the grandmother of the family, tells one of her granddaughters, “You are a woman who has a brain and reasonable ability… Stop wining and find something to do”.
Colors are powerful tools. I use colors every day. You do, too. Every time you dress in the morning, when you eat, you subconsciously make decisions based on color. The color yellow is used to illustrate happiness and life. Like in a movie where the story hits the resolution and the sun comes out, representing happiness. Sunday, while marching in a pro-life rally, I noticed the signs and balloons were yellow, creating a fun atmosphere. Walking in a rally is a new experience for me. I am not the type to be waving signs around, But this march was truly different.
I have seen Chicago at her best and worse. In the heat of the summer, the sad damp spring, the bright colorful fall and the freezing winter. If I were to move from my city and had to choose only one month to visit, I would come during December. There is one thing that makes winter different from any other time of the year. Christmas lights on Michigan Ave. I was taking pictures for a friend and spent my Saturday running around the city. I started at the river walk and found myself by the Water Tower. It was 55 degrees here in Chicago. This is extremely rare for December. I took full advantage and captured a little bit of the season, featuring the bright Christmas lights.
