Out taking pictures today

This is the day of the Elgin 1440 project, where photographers, both amateur and professional are being encouraged to record an ordinary day in Elgin, Illinois, from midnight to midnight. So that's what I'll be doing most of the day today. Photos will be selected for public display later in the month of May.

This photo was taken some time ago. It shows Walton Island, in the middle of the Fox River in downtown Elgin. A fisherman has called it quits for the day and is heading home via a footbridge that connects sections of the island. In the background is the skyline of Elgin.

I'll submit my share of photos to the project. Those and many of the rest will be displayed here.

What beautiful pictures! I have never been to Elgin even though I live in the Chicago burbs. I might just have to go there.
