2012-08-18 [Amy] Doorknob of Justice

This weekend we had some fun playing tourists in our own town. One of the places we visited is the Basilica of St. Josephat, which is on 6th and Lincoln.  A beautiful building; much of it was build from salvage material from an old post office in downtown Chicago.  Here you see the uniquely styled doorknob which used to be on that Chicago post office.

Mushrooms

These puffy-looking little mushrooms were growing in Cathedral Square park during my walk at lunch. I liked that they matched the woodchips around them, continuing the browns and greens throughout the photo.

Rooftop in Cathedral Square

I loved the colors on the rooftop of the church in Cathedral Square (Cathedral of St. John the Evangelist).  The tie-in of the color of the copper really brings out the greens.
