|Morris Island Light,SC|
That is just one of the things I enjoy about taking photos and working them for enjoyment and then sharing.
I love seeing what I might not have seen when I looked through the lens.
I believe that is the goal I sought to achieve when I planned a trip to visit totally opposite venues.
Opposite in population type and in the style of the cities themselves.
Even our mode of transportation was a huge contrast!
|Oak Street Beach, Chicago IL|
The Water is Fine...
In both venues there is a body of water and miles of beaches.
There is interest and weight in the buildings and the architecture.
History abounds in all of the places. Stories and entertainment lie as a foundation for the visitor.
I love both of these photos.
One is the Oak Street Beach in Chicago. That photo in itself is a contradiction!
Look at those skyscrapers as the backdrop to a beach area with a laid back, not-in-the-city attitude.
Then there is the Morris Island Lighthouse photo. Not as strong a contrast in this one. Just plain serenity with the waves in motion and the Light behind in the sea. As if to stand strong against the elements. Maybe that is a parallel to draw here?
