Random Mondays... 06.05.06...

Images for today's random goodness were taken over the past week.

First up, on Saturday, I was at the Printers Row Book Fair, and while walking near the Metropolitan Correctional Center on Van Buren and Federal, I could see the prisoners looking down on the crowds. A bit creepy, but interesting none the less.

Last weeks storms brought out the most interesting of skies. This shot taken from my window on 5/30.

Zoology Building at The University of Chicago, on West 57th Street. UofC is certainly one of the most beautiful campuses in the Midwest.

Inside the gate to the Quadrangle, we came across this Lilly pond... Not much was in bloom, but I managed to capture these flowers on the far end of the pond.

Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Inc. National Office, Hyde Park. What a nice modernist box. Mies would be proud.

Yesterday afternoon walking through my nabe, the sun was right to capture the stainless steel on the Inland Steel Building.

I've always found the rooftop yard of the correctional center an intentional slap-in-the-face to the prisoners. It's almost forcing them to look down at everybody moving about with total freedom. It also reminds me of the Bridge of Sighs in Venice, where the glass bottom bridge gave prisoners a last view of the city before they were executed. Here it's not so grim, but a similar impact.
