Lights! Camera! Action! This week, Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge puts lights in the spotlight. I hadn’t realized how many pictures of lights I had until I went through the photo files looking for suitable images. Here are just a few.
Light stands in Maggie Daley Park in downtown Chicago.
Still in downtown Chicago. Kids enjoying some summer fun at the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park.

The subject for Cee’s Black & White Photo Challenge this week is glass and going through the photo files I came across a few items that I thought might work. It’s funny how, when you see the theme for a certain challenge, you wish you’d taken pictures of some things you’d seen that would have been great! Oh well! If only we could see the future as easily as we can see through glass.

Too much time on my hands; this was a photographic experiment that I set up on a dreary day just for something to do.

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.

This week, Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge calls for Anything Painted. My goodness! Where to begin! There are so many ‘painted‘ subjects in the old photo files but since I’m rather late in answering this challenge I picked a few that really stood out, just at a quick glance.
A painted sculpture of a bison on Antelope Island in the Great Salt Lake, Utah.
A mural painted on a wall in the Route 66 section of Joliet History Museum.
A purple painted pony on display at the Northshore Sculpture Park in Skokie.
Paintwork in need of some TLC on an old railroad wagon at the National Railway Museum in Green Bay.
