This week Cee has us climbing up on the roof for her Fun Foto Challenge. This puts me in mind of the time we lived in a house with a flat roof and would sit listening to it creak as the snow piled up on it during the winter months. No flat roofs in this collection except for the first one at Arlington Park racetrack in Arlington Heights. I would hate to have to get up there and shovel snow off of this one.
Some of the angles and lines of the roof at the Art Museum in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
The more classical lines of the roof at the BAPS Swaminarayan Mandir in Bartlett, Illinois.
Looking up at the roof of the Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake, Illinois.
The bold lines of the roof at Kohl Children’s Museum in Glenview, Illinois.

For Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week I’ve attempted to focus on the entrance rather than the door. To me the word entrance implies all that is in the immediate area as well as the door itself, and very often the door is the least impressive part of the whole.
In this case, the entrance to the Infinity Room at The House on the Rock in Wisconsin is just a simple glass door, but the large windows on either side present a view of the interior that makes this entrance an impressive sight.
This unexpected entrance at the house on the Redfield Estate in Glenview is made more interesting by the spiral staircase and surrounding foliage which lead up to it.
It may not be as grand as Wrigley Field but the entrance to Silver Cross Field in Joliet puts up quite a bold front.
One of the more elaborate entrances in downtown Chicago is at Tribune Tower on North Michigan Avenue.
