This must have been a popular pattern at one time, since there's one that seems almost identical in a Cleveland park off the Shoreway, just east of Lakewood.

There are also a few other places in Chicago that are done in this style as well so it probably was popular. I want to get back to Cleveland this summer and shoot. I was there last year visiting my girlfriend's family and saw so many places that I wanted to photograph.

There's a lot of interesting architecture downtown and on the near east and near west sides.

Wallace Lake in Berea is great for the artificial waterfall and the birds. The last time I was there, I got a [Blurry] picture of an otter. I had no idea they got this far north.

I like to go to Lakewood Park and take pictures of the boats, including the ore freighters. One freighter was a good mile or more out in the lake and it was so big I couldn't get it all in frame with my 500mm mirror lens.

If you like bridges, it's a great place to shoot, especially downtown and all through the Metroparks.

Hi, ex-neighbor!

Looks like what I saw along the lake in Evanston on Tuesday the 18th. Sure wish I had my camera with me at the time.

Unique image. The guy is depicted as a bit of a "tool", isn't he? :rolleyes:

This was a bit of a compromise.

I tried to limit the distractions below the building. It looks like the building is missing something on the top. Given the sky, I thought I cut the top of the building off.
