Photo Essay: Golden Streets

If it weren't for the leaf blowers, Chicago's streets would be paved in gold these days, as this sidewalk is, at least in one spot. I am somewhat infatuated with fall, so I'm sharing my marvel today at how the maple trees have bathed the streets in gold.

Lunt Avenue, west of Western

I love how my sideview mirror catches that tunnel of gold.

Brilliant color combinations like this can be spotted around any corner.

Here's why the sidewalk in front of our building is grey and empty, despite the glowing maple tree that sheds its abundance with every whiff of wind.


  1. Love when the trees look like they are on "fire"--thanks for sharing!

  2. oh I just love the fall colors- you have captured them beautifully here.
