Tourist Attractions

Bad Ass Coffee.
I had my husband pull over so I could take pictures. 
 Love the simple, lazy name; tight, red typeface crowded over the doorway.
Taken October 2010 when visiting family in California.

Giant eyeball sculpture.
Downtown Chicago summer 2009.

Redwood Forest, Armstrong Woods, California 2010.
Air smells amazing.  Feel oxygen making every cell of my body sing.
Depressingly, about 96% of original forest cut down in California.
Sadder yet, compare with Illinois, 1/100th of 1% of original
prairie and oak savannah remain,
on fringes near railroad tracks and old graveyards.

Stare down. Big dinosaur. Field Museum, Chicago, 2009.

Lake Michigan, Chicago lakefront.
Windy day bridal party,
taken near Alder Planterium, 2008?
