  • While at the drive-thru at Portillos in Vernon Hills, I noticed a nice row of icicles forming on the roof. The sun was low in the sky and cast a nice shadow on the light as well as the icicles hanging from it. I like the fact that the light isn't centered in the frame but the shadow is. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edition.
