  • A large inflatable shamrock outside a Lisle bar combined with the ominous clouds and the bright late afternoon sun caught my eye. I used a wide angle lens and a low vantage point to frame the shamrock in the sky without having any buildings in the background.

Doesn't matter to me. PERSPECTIVE is a weekly photo column by the Daily Herald's Fox Valley photo staff.
