City sightings…

Sneaking a look out of a retail window showed a dumpster that seemed to me to be filled with some worthwhile stuffs. Too bad it wasn’t accessible and that I downsized my life a few years ago. Can’t help but believe someone would have appreciated the chance to salvage the remnants. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Not uncommon site in a busy, congested, urban area; this is Chicago. Streets are equally abundant with bicycle traffic. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

And if you don’t own a bicycle, you can rent a Divy bike to do your errands or sightsee. They are everywhere! Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Ah, a classic in-the-loop scene with an “El” (elevated” train above and traffic congestion below. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Of course, a city is incomplete without the pigeon! Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Chicago is rich, or ripe, with politicians and their boastings. I did not expect to see a 2020 presidential loud-speaker float riding down the street for you-know-who. It was not a parade day at all. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Expanded views…

Louie Bossi’s restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale has a sweet courtyard dining area that’s a must whenever you’re on Las Olas Blvd. Besides incredible food the environment invites one to let their troubles drift away and relax. One of the design elements are many vintage windows that frame mirrors, hung on their brick walls. The impression created is that of a lush tropical garden, because of multiplied images of each plant in the courtyard. Copyright 2018 Pamela Breitberg

Pathways through…

Stone stairs that show the wear of decades of tread down from Grant’s statue in Lincoln Park. The statue was supposed to be placed in Grant Park but proved too costly to move once the placement error was revealed. Copyright 2016 Pamela Breitberg

Stone archway leading from Lake Shore Drive to the “Farm” south of Lincoln Park Zoo. Copyright 2016, Pamela Breitberg

Invitation to relax in Lincoln Park. The low benches allow you to stretch out and rest one’s weary feet, a comforting respite along the miles and miles of pathways through the park. Early in the morning it is possible to find a cluster of empty benches. Copyright 2016, Pamela Breitberg
