North of Chicago on the shores of Lake Michigan, my hometown.

In no particular order ....

Waukegan - there is only one.

Is that good or bad?

Power

A mile or so from where I grew up - the coal fired ComEd plant always provided a backdrop for my views. In the winter the soot from the plant would settle on the fallen snow - leaving clear dark lines in the snowbanks where it had settled between snows.

When I drove down with my wife in 2009 to take some of these we were quickly pulled over by security - the personable guard said there was nothing he could do about us taking photos from the public road - they just wanted to make sure we weren't terrorists. Totally different feel and experience than we had just had at the Zion (nuke) plant.























and from 2013










and a segway .....

As my kids would say - good because the world couldn't take twice this awesomeness.

Rail

A very big train yard provided a big part of my playground as a kid - a rich source of 1/2 burnt flares, a great place to flatten pennies. These shots are from Aug of 2013
