This week Cee invites us to take a view from the side for her Fun Foto Challenge. I try to take pictures from as many different angles as possible which includes from the side.
Side view of one of the heads sculpted by Jaume Plensa, on display at Millennium Park in downtown Chicago.
Two yachts racing side by side at Lake Opeka in Des Plaines.
An interesting mural on the side of a building in Lexington, Kentucky.
The side of a vintage car at Bluesmobile Cruise Night in Mount Prospect.
A side view of the great Mackinac Bridge in Michigan.
A wild turkey showing its best side at Cantigny Park in Wheaton, Illinois.

This week, Cee has us looking for faces in everyday things for her Fun Foto Challenge. Here are a few of the faces that looked out at me from the old photo files.
A unicorn magically appears in a tree trunk at Spring Valley Nature Center in Schaumburg……..
while these vintage cars seem to have taken on personalities of their own at Bluesmobile Cruise Night in Mount Prospect, Illinois.
And a giant face glares out from the rocks at Arches National Park in Utah.

Looking for something bright and cheerful on a cold winter’s day, I decided on these car doors for Norm’s Thursday Doors. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I’m no car expert but I do appreciate the colors and aesthetics of some of the vintage cars on display at various places such as our local Bluesmobile Cruise Night and Volo Auto Museum.

This week, Cee suggests that we look at the ins and outs for her Fun Foto Challenge. If taken literally, this topic certainly was a challenge. I haven’t captured too many pictures of both the inside and outside of anything other than, perhaps, buildings. But going through the photo files I finally came across some pictures, from the local Bluesmobile Cruise Night, that I thought might work. The hardest part was trying to match the right interior to the exterior. I’m no car expert!

Not just any old green, but light green. That’s what Cee is asking for in her Fun Foto Challenge this week, so here goes!
One of the many hotels on Mackinac Island, this one distinctive by reason of its color, light green, which really made a splash against the blue sky.
A light green classic car at Mount Prospect’s Bluesmobile Cruise Night.
Just a small part of my extensive frog collection. There must be a light green one in there somewhere!
A beautiful view from Foothills Parkway in Tennessee.
The town clock in Mitchell, South Dakota.

Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week calls for images that included the colors orange & green.
An orange signpost amongst the greenery points the way to a gnome garden at the Vander Veer Botanical Park in Davenport, Iowa.
Not only did we find gnomes in the garden but also beautiful orange canna lilies.
An orange dinosaur crushing pumpkins on the green at Goebberts Farm in South Barrington.
Pumpkins and other kinds of squash in a slightly more tranquil environment at the Morton Arboretum.
Despite the fact that this orange truck only has a hint of green, I find my eye immediately drawn to the color, perhaps because it is something of a leading line. Found at Bluesmobile Cruise Night in Mount Prospect.
We found this old tractor at West Street Sculpture Garden in Galena. Artist John Martinson works with scrap metal to make some interesting if rather bizarre pieces of sculpture and we weren’t entirely sure whether this was one of the exhibits or just something that he uses to move the pieces around. I think probably the latter.
A hummingbird and flower made of Lego on display at the Morton Arboretum in Lisle.

You can’t mistake these engines when they come roaring overhead. A cargo plane comes in for a landing at O’Hare Airport in Chicago.
One of the many vintage car engines at Bluesmobile Cruise Night in Mount Prospect.
A old locomotive on display at the National Railroad Museum in Green Bay, Wisconsin.
A cruise on the boat Chicago’s Fair Lady, a great way to see the sights along the river in downtown Chicago.
