Phew! Patti, I think you win the award for the looooongest title challenge to date, at least that I’ve seen.

I’m featuring photos from Illinois today and although I know most of you expect nature when you come here, what could be more iconicalyl Illinois than the Arcs and Arches of the Bean in Chicago? It’s a mind-bending Awesome Artistic beauty.

These Architectural features (and yes, you could say Arcs again) are found in the Art Institute of Chicago.

Let’s close with a two-fer: Animals in a nature Alley.

for Lens-Artists Photo Challenge #126: An Alphabet Challenge–Subjects That Begin with the Letter A.

When I’m doing a photo walk, I don’t walk too quickly so as not to miss anything. That paid off this day as I came around a bend and saw this young buck. We both froze, I lifted my camera and started taking shots, he came toward me, then gradually relaxed enough to even start to graze… until a cyclist came pedaling from behind him. In a few seconds he was far enough into the meadow that I couldn’t even see his antlers.
