The west branch of the DuPage River runs through downtown Naperville, Illinois and next to it is a beautiful 1.75 miles of paths, fountains, bridges, statues, and more.  It’s the perfect place to stroll on a sunny spring day or to sit on a bench relaxing on your day off.  Take a walk with me.  It’s more fun with a friend.

I walk through books all the time, but this book walk is different.  First, let’s make a stop at the coffee shop in Standard Market, an upscale grocery store/restaurant only a few blocks from our house, to pick up a coffee drink.  Being a tea drinker, full-on coffee can give me the shakes so today’s tipple is a decaf iced mocha.  What would you like?  I’m buying.

All aboard for downtown Naperville, where each summer there’s a theme that participating businesses use to advertise and prettify the city.  Last summer it was books.  Look who’s also coming downtown!  There could be trouble in our future.  🙂

Hurrah!  I have a Wednesday off, which means I can participate in the Weekly Photo Challenge, something I’ve been missing for some weeks.  Today’s theme is “Story”.  Jen asks us to share a photo or group of photos that tells a story.  As a photographer, I think that Rod Stewart’s words apply here:  “Every picture tells a story, don’t it?”, so I could pick pretty much any photo and you could tell your own story about it.

However, I’m going to be, as Gollum said in Lord of the Rings, “tricksy.”  This photo actually does tell a story of a time past in Naperville, Illinois.

No time for a long post today.  It’s late Sunday and we’re just back from a Super Bowl party, watching the Eagles defeat the Patriots.  The food was great, the game even better, the company best of all.  So today I offer you a seemingly simple shot that took a long time to take, as the Windy City was living up to its name on the cold morning when I tried and tried to get this papery beauty to hold still long enough to immortalize it.  I hope you enjoy the result.
