The intricacies of art and nature are the subjects that I used to illustrate this week’s theme for the Weekly Photo Challenge on The Daily Post.
The intricate carving under the archway at the BAPS Shri Swaminarayan Mandir in Bartlett, Illinois.
The skeleton of a leaf shows up nicely against the blue sky.
An intricate design on a stained glass window at the Smith Museum of Stained Glass Windows on Navy Pier in Chicago. Sadly the museum has now been closed in order to make room for more retail opportunities on the pier, and is not likely to be reconvened at any other location because of the size of the collection. I shall be sorry not to see these magnificent pieces of artwork when I visit the Pier again.
A butterfly at the Chicago Botanic Garden.
