Who isn’t sick of winter already?

This photo by Matt Maldre (Flickr alias: spudart) stood out among the hundreds of Chicago winter scenes I perused to find a visual representation of my mood while de-thawing from the morning commute. I could have easily shared with you an artsy shot of the frozen river or a beautifully lit skyline shown through winter fog. But this photo said so much more about my current attitude toward winter in Chicago: dark, yucky, and yet still beautiful. Maldre describes it well: “a cast of characters huddling together in the urban coldness.”

Who’s sick of winter already?

This photo by Matt Maldre (Flickr alias: spudart) stood out among the hundreds of Chicago winter scenes I perused to find a visual representation of my mood today while de-thawing from the morning commute. I could have easily shared with you an artsy shot of the frozen river or a beautifully lit skyline shown through winter fog. But this shot said so much more about my current attitude toward winter in Chicago: dark, yucky, and yet still beautiful. Maldre calls it “a cast of characters huddling together in the urban coldness.”
