Some Days Change Fast…

Monday, October 29th, 2007

I had a plan for today. It all changed very quickly and that meant I did not work at home today. I dropped my plans to help a friend, totally worthwhile. I did teach two computer classes, too, later in the day.

Since I did not spend lots of time on my computer, I don’t have recent photos for you. However, here are a few random photos I developed in the last few months but never posted.

The squirrel who had been so hot this summer… found a nut and made enough noise eating it that I went out to investigate. Same exact spot. This was maybe a month ago, actually, when the leaves were still green:

The parking ramp at Lansing Community College, where I had my class this weekend. I think this view of the exit ramp is quite striking, if unreal in a city-sort-of-way:

A view of the lakeshore (the west shore of Lake Michigan) in Chicago, from the viewing deck of the Sears Tower. I usually get dizzy up there (not on the Hancock building, oddly) but this day it was not windy (we could not feel the building sway as usually happens). It was misty and cloudy which may also have helped, perhaps being able to see too far is also dizzying. We got up there in the 15 minute timeframe that whole day when people could actually see something through the clouds.

This was in late August, I went with Altu and a young Ethiopian friend who had never been to a city of this sort…. and who was enthralled to be there.

You know, I adore Chicago from many angles. At this height, the horizon looks a little bit curved. So cool!
