On April 18th (Good Friday), I was able to get into the abandoned St Boniface Church in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood and photograph the interior, just before sundown. I didn’t imagine how decayed and deteriorated the church really is. The pictures speak for themselves, and some are more processed than others by having taken bracketed pictures. Walking around and looking with the naked eye strikes a sad emotion, and makes one ponder how beautiful the church was decades ago.

I took a walk along Chicago’s lakefront before dawn to get some shots of the ice. This HDR picture captures the sun and frozen conditions just north of Oak Street beach. The approximate temperature was -4 degrees Fahrenheit.
The sun shines through the trees and highlights the fall leaves and headstones at Graceland Cemetery, a very serene location for a Sunday afternoon walk in the fall.
It was a beautiful day in Chicago to explore Osaka Garden. Perfect sunlight, reflections, and warm weather.
The clouds and sunset were perfect tonight, despite the chill and strong winds.

A train can be seen down the tunnel at this CTA train stop. This is the Jackson Red Line stop.

From the old Civic Opera Building on the right, a view across Wacker Dr in Chicago displays new architecture built nearly a century later.
I’ve passed by this Convent several times, and have always been impressed with the beauty of the grounds. I came here in the evening and asked if I could walk around and snap a few pictures. They were very kind and offered me to explore as I wished.
