Outfit: Dam, Girl!


I’m pretty sure this place is going to become one of my favorite shooting locations.  In my quest to visit every forest preserve in Dupage County, I zigzagged all the way out to Churchill Park for an afternoon of pictures, and the things I saw made the whole thing positively magical.DSC_1905DSC_1916DSC_1932DSC_1959


Everywhere I looked was a riot of color.  Every flower was in bloom, and all the other foliage was aglow in the early sunset.  I wandered up and down the park, parting the tendrils of willow trees, creaking over the boardwalks, and stopping at the still ponds to watch the fish below.  On my way back to the car, I heard a loud SPLASH and got my camera ready just in time to snap a little beaver busily working his way back to the dam.

Really, the only thing this park is missing is a big old Victorian mansion, but you know what?  I bet I’ll find one if I just go on a little further.
