This week Cee has us looking at hands & feet for her Black & White Photo Challenge. They are not usually something I focus on specifically so there weren’t too images available in the photo files and I had to make the most of what I had.
Without the signature red & yellow coloring it might be difficult to tell that these feet belong to Ronald McDonald, who put in an appearance at the American Lung Association Lung Force Walk in Oak Brook, Illinois.
A polar bear and one of the keepers comparing hands/feet at Brookfield Zoo.

If you want to know what it takes to climb Hidden Peak (elevation 11,000ft) at Snowbird in the Wasatch Mountains of Utah, take a look at this picture of some of the legs and feet (and heart) that made it to the top during the Wasatch 100 endurance race last year.
If you recognize yours among these, let me say, “Congratulations!” That was an amazing accomplishment! We took the easy way up, by aerial tram. I consider myself fairly reserved but I couldn’t help cheering as these hardy souls, some walking, some biking, a few even carrying their bikes, made it to the finish line.

You have to watch very carefully where you’re walking when you go inside the Butterflies & Blooms Exhibit at the Chicago Botanic Garden. The butterflies have a tendency to take a rest on the pathways so when I stopped to take a closer look at this one, it decided to hitch a ride on my shoe. It probably thought things were safer above my foot than beneath it.
In fact, it’s always good policy to look down occasionally to see what’s beneath your feet when taking a walk. I nearly stepped on this little frog while exploring the Paul Douglas Forest Preserve in Hoffman Estates the other day.
But looking down almost made me dizzy with this elaborately designed parquet flooring beneath my feet at the Dole Mansion in Crystal Lake.
There’s no mistaking which side of the path you’re supposed to be on when visiting Lake Arlington. The instructions are right there, beneath your feet.

Some pictures from our day at the American Lung Association’s Fight For Air walk last Sunday. For more on this event see my post on Incidentally at http://skfjrifnd.wordpress.com/2013/09/30/fight-for-air-2013/
This event was held at McDonald’s Hamburger University in Oak Brook, Illinois.
The route included some nice scenery and I kept getting left behind as I stopped to get some shots.
Ronald McDonald was there to see us off to a good start.
There is some interesting memorabilia inside the University and I am told that it’s a great place to hold meetings and even weddings.
