FUN scary night…

I don’t share many “people” images, but thought those not in Chicago might enjoy seeing how one section of Chicago celebrated Halloween last night. Halsted Street’s 22nd Annual Halloween Parade begins with a flash mob doing Thriller. It was a celebratory, unusual warm 50’s, so prime party weather which brought out MANY participants and viewers. This parade is adult oriented; multiple events for children happened over the past weekend. Because sometimes adult need to play!! ALL images copyright 2018 Pamela Beitberg

Have a HAPPY Halloween…

Nature’s variety in design and patterns always intrigues me, in particular this time of year are the many varied creations under the “squash” or “gourd” category. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

More goosey antics…

What looks like a racing goose is just one trying to clean all those layers of feathers. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

It takes a lot of energy to bath all those goose feathers. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

The contrast between the ripple design in the harbor waters and the feathered pattern of the geese seemed to compliment each other. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Embrace each moment, each person….

The world is rich with diversity in nature and it’s people. That’s what makes it so wondrous. Today the brilliance and awesomeness of each of us feels dimmed because of multiple, hatred attacks to too many. May we grieve and know that it is OUR love and faith that will make each day most special; each moment a miracle unto itself. May we be strengthened by each sweet moment today. May we embrace each other and radiate the love that makes life wonderful. ………….Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Natural fears…

Just outside the lion den at Lincoln Park’s Zoo was this scary creature. Nature’s addition to the zoo’s Fall Festival of creepy things! Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

It’s beginning to look like Halloween time…

Pumpkins carved prior to Halloween (October 31st) tend to whither and rot which adds to the creepiness of the carvings. Warmer afternoons aid in the process. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg
