Today I went to Chicago with my son. I wanted to take some city pictures at different angles and not the usual tourist pictures. The first picture is of a restaurant on the way to the train station. The second picture is of the L, the elevated train line in Chicago. The last pictures are of the Wills Tower, the old Sears Tower. I know that's touristy, but I thought the angles were different.

This has been an extremely wet summer. I think it has had an effect on my flowers. They look fine, but they don't have that flourish that they usually have at this time of the summer. The grass looks fine blowing in the wind. The last two pictures are of wiry seed pods from my clematis vines. I didn't know what they were, but I saw a posting on Vicki Lane's blog, Vicki Lane's Mysteries. Thanks Vicki for posting your picture which was so beautiful with the rain on the seed pod.
