A few months ago I was so very fortunate to go to London. I went with a friend who had been there often, so that made it all the better. Daily we walked by this magnificent Church located in extremely busy area of Kensington. It was Armistice Day when I took these photos, locals were gathered outside the front of the Abbot to say prayers and pay tribute to all those who fought in the wars. From there we went to Trafalgar Square and the surrounding area where the brave men and women who fought in the wars were meeting with friends, drinking and singing as they stood outside the pubs. Armistice Day was celebrated in London with the reverence and grace it deserves.

I found this powerful stone gate while on a walk in the North Shore community of Chicago. I loved the moss in the crevasses and the worn stone. There are so many of these hidden gems, just take a moment to admire and study them.
There is an understated beauty in Chicago in winter. The snow quiets the city noise, the snow dresses up the grays of the buildings and the trees. And then the pop of red on the woman's coat and spots of color on the basketball hoop. Archival Prints available click on UnderstatedBeauty
