My second entry for Becky’s Square Perspectives Photo Challenge includes different views of McCormick House at Cantigny Park. From any perspective this is an interesting place and well worth a look, inside and out (although no photography allowed inside.)
The Merriam-Webster definition of a topknot describes it as: an ornament, such as a knot of ribbons or a pompom, forming a headdress or worn as part of a coiffure: a crest of feathers or tuft of hair on top of the head. I think these might qualify for Becky’s Square Tops Photo Challenge.
Another entry for Becky’s January Light Square Photo Challenge. This image was captured at the Stephenson County Historical Museum in Freeport, Illinois.
I suppose it was inevitable. I do seem to have quite a few train lines in the photo files so here are some for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge. The first set are all in Chicago. The second set includes lines from Bartlett, Milwaukee, Glenwood Springs in Colorado and Galena, Illinois.
Some fancy lines at the Biltmore Estate in North Carolina for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge.
Here are a few lines at the Milwaukee Art Museum for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge.
All kinds of straight and curvy lines at the colorful Chinese Lantern Festival in the Missouri Botanical Garden, St. Louis, for Becky’s Lines and Squares Challenge.
Here are a few lines from Temple Square, Salt Lake City in Utah, for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge.
Here are a few lines for Becky’s Square Lines Challenge that I found in Green Bay, Wisconsin. These images were captured at the Green Bay Botanical Garden, The National Railroad Museum (note the line of geese taking a tour), Lambeau Field (home of the Green Bay Packers) and Heritage Hill State Park.
For today’s Square Lines Challenge I’d like to share these images from Ashland, Wisconsin. The Veterans Mural, which took two years to complete, was dedicated in the summer of 2005. These portraits on Vaughn Avenue and Main Street honor those men and women from Ashland who served in the armed forces during various wars and conflicts. The artists referred to photos of the actual people in order to make the mural as accurate as possible.
