The weather on this perfect Saturday morning was warm enough to be pleasant, but cool enough that the snow did not melt, giving the family the opportunity to make multiple trips down the hill.

Which way should I go? That seems to be the question this picture is asking, don't you think?I saw this the other day when I was out at the lowering of Garfield Farm's 1842 barn in La Fox and I thought that it is interesting. I am guessing that it is some sort of footprint from a bird. If you know what footprint this belongs to, I would love to know. This photo was originally published in the Perspective column in the print edtion of the Daily Herald.

A high school varsity swimmer sprints to begin his 50-yard freestyle event during the Downers Grove North Boys Invitational Swimming and Diving Meet. I like the foreground reflection of his supportive teammates. The glass-like portion of the water which shows other swimmers' reflections is caused by this event being started following a 10 minute break where all swimmers were not allowed to enter the pool. This photo was originally published in the Perspective column in the print edtion of the Daily Herald.
