Mandarin Orange Monday

Last week I went to Lurie Gardens once again for a Raptor Program.  I snapped some pictures on the way in, while I was there and on the way out. As promised (Jeanne) here they are in a different format ...

    Urban Contrasts ...

                            Night Lights ...

                                     And, of course, The Bean ...


  1. Thanks for the visit. Oh I love the Lurie Gardens...What a spectacular oasis in the heart of Chicago...It is a hot bed of biodiversity and I love that whole area, lucky you....great photos of the bean and the surrounding city...xox

  2. A really cool series! I like them all!

  3. Wow, you've outdone yourself my friend. Very nice indeed. That oval shape is awesome, but I love the version of the bean the best. I love how you put the onlookers in and the various shades of selective coloring. I think this one should be hanging inside the museum on the wall.

    I'm not working tonight, but Pogo is sticking to my ankles for dear life. He's making sure that I don't slip out the door without him. Ah well, in a few more hours, he'll have it figured out. lol. You have a wonderful night. Hugs for you and licks and woofs for Izzi. Edna (& Pogo) B.

  4. That's pretty cool.

    Have a terrific day. ☺

  5. I love the way you have done the edits!

  6. wow-these are really fabulous!!

  7. Andrea everyone is saying 'wow" including me:) And as Edna said, you really have outdone yourself! I love them all - the first three for the linear edges and combination of subtle browns etc against the bright orange. The third especially the composition - that really is an amazing image - almost makes me dizzy:) And the last two so expressive. I really enjoyed them all. Thanks for sharing in Mandarin Orange Monday:) Of course!:))
