  • The Bears game against the Lions was held the day before Veterans Day and I had seen the huge American flag they were bringing out in the tunnel earlier. Fortunately the sun was coming in at a severe angle that put much of the stands in shadow, partly silhouetted the servicemen and women in front of me and highlighted a flag being held by the color guard. This photo was published in the weekly Perspective column in the print edition.

  • Volunteer Janet Wilson, of St. Charles, hangs snowflake decorations as she and fellow volunteer Darlene Riebe install a Christmas display Monday morning in the large window on the south side of the St. Charles Municipal Center. The display will promote the Holiday Homecoming event, sponsored by the Downtown St. Charles Partnership. Despite the chilly winds and cold temperatures Monday, both women were working up a good sweat in the display window as the sun continued to heat up their confined work space. Both women say it's even worse working inside that window in the summer.

  • A single leaf hangs onto the end of a branch on a tree in Lisle as fall turns into winter. Interesting photos can be taken when you use a telephoto lens on subjects that are only a few feet away. Using a telephoto this way, and with a large lens opening, throws a potentially distracting background way out of focus. This isolates the subject from the background very nicely. This photo was published in the weekly Perspective column in the print editon.
