Downtown Naperville is a happening place at night, not the sort of spot you’d expect to be going to the dogs. But it is, as you’ve seen before. This night my husband and I took a walk, fortified by some amazing gelato. We didn’t share with any of these guys, though.

A dog of a different color, lots of different colors.

Every year downtown Naperville has a theme that businesses for advertising, but in an artsy way. Several years ago, it was seats in the form of books, last year hearts. I wasn’t enthralled with the hearts, so I was happy to see “The Dog Days of Summer” was the theme, therefore there were dogs.

On a beautiful summer morning, I sat along the Riverwalk, sipping tea, reading, doing a bit of writing, relishing knowing there was no place I had to be except there.

I’d been wanting to get photos of some of the dogs, so that’s what I did next. Here are a few of the ones I saw that day.

Gotta love the goggles and shoes!

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.
