Quick Portraits At Earth Day

Earth Day In Forest Park 2013 27

Regular readers know that I love shooting candid street portraits (our colleague Steffe does a very good job of this, too). The woman at the top is promoting an environmentally-friendly home cleaning service. Her outfit is a reference to the iconic World War II image of Rosie the Riveter, which you can see on the card in her hands. The second photo shows someone who has an affinity for hair as unnatural and un-earth-friendly as it gets but, hey, she looks cool.

It's going to be tight on material and comments here for a couple of days. Two busy days at work coming up, then off to Chicago (air traffic control permitting). Fun with son Andy over the weekend, business Monday and Tuesday, and a Cubs game thrown in there somewhere. Windy City pix starting Sunday.

Chicago is an underrated city and I look forward to your photos. Of course, I may be prejudiced as I was born there.

Clever way to promote herself.

woman on second portrait sure does look cool in that hair style.

Splendid portrait shots, Bob.

If you're taking in a Cubs game, prepare to roll your eyes frequently.
