Road To Mukwonago (May 20, 2012)

Music by Diana Ross - "Do You Know Where You're Going To"

I really wish I had been in NYC for a protest rally, yet it was too far for me to travel.  Instead I headed to southern Wisconsin to be in the rolling hills and to find the solace I used to find when going to the mountains of western Maryland.

Day's Before NATO Summit - Chicago, 2012

© (2012) Photographs by Vicki Polin Music by Christina Perri - "A Thousand Years" I had to be downtown and figured since I had some time I would take pictures of the Museum Campus area before the city closes it down before NATO comes to town. It was so strange to see very few boats in the water on such a beautiful spring day, let alone very few in Burnham Harbor. I also don't believe I saw a single plane flying over the city. My hope is that Chicago will shine before, during and after the chaos hits our beloved city.

I haven't been to this park since I was a kid. I was surprised to that I could see downtown Chicago from the beach. This state park is about 50 miles away.

The Great Escape - May 8, 2012

© (2012) Photographs by Vicki Polin Music by Bill Quateman - "What are you looking for" I was feeling bogged down, so I started my day off by going to the Bog in Volo IL and on to the Mc Henry Dam. Once I was done there I wandered around the countryside. I just needed to see farms, horses and what ever else I could find.

Got trapped in a building when the hail started coming down. Here's what the parking lot looked like. I didn't think of taking my camera out until the hail started to slow down.

A Celebration of Life - Gillson Beach

Music by Paco de Lucia (A Pesar De Todo)

The pictures today were taken as a way to celebrate my life. It's the 2 month anniversary since I had surgery.  It was also the first day that I saw sailboats out on the lake.
