10/22/2014 - Quote - Steve Jobs - Creativity

"Creativity is just connecting things.  When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they really didn't do it, they just saw something,  It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things."
~ Steve Jobs

10/22/2014 - Outdoor Wednesday - # 302 - Farmland



Howdy Folks!   If you would like to view Outdoor Themes click here: http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/.  Thank you Susan for being the hostess.




This is what Midwestern Farmlands look like in the Fall.   I love how one tree looks like fireworks....one outdoing the tree standing next to the other tree.   I love how barren tilled land looks and how green other sections look.   I love how hay is rolled up and stored.   I love how the clouds look so close that a person could just reach up and touch them.   I love everything about Fall.

10/14/2014 - Outdoor Wednesday - #301 - Van Bergen House




Howdy Folks!   If you would like to view Outdoor Themes click here: http://asoutherndaydreamer.blogspot.com/.   Thank you Susan for being the hostess.



Road was closed to traffic on Friday, October 10, 2014 from 5 A.M. until 7 P.M.


Historic John S. Van Bergen (Associate Architect of Frank Lloyd Wright) built this house in 1927 for James Irving at 1318 Isabella Street, Wilmette, Illinois.



People gathered to watch this historical event take place.   Some arrived with their pet dogs.   Others came with their cameras.   Still others drove by in their vehicles.


Preservationist Chris Eneck, a member of the Skyline Council-the junior board of Landmarks Illinois has been lobbying hard to keep the Van Bergen house from facing the wrecking ball since February, 2012.


This is a photograph of two story frame and stucco building with three bedrooms.


Signs, tree limbs, electric lights had to be removed.  Overhead utility lines had to be dealt with and permits were needed.


This Prairie School house is being parked at Whole Foods - Parking Lot at Green Bay Road and Isabella, Evanston, Illinois, until its second move.


Anyone want to purchase the land and build their own dream house?

Thinking Outside The Box - Leaf - Quote - Pablo Picasso - Art



Leaf Underwater


"Art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life."
~ Pablo Picasso

Note:   Sand appears like leaf patterns and skin patterns.   Leaf has eyes and nose and a wee bit of black hair.   So, abandoned houses and rocks have stories perhaps sand has hidden stories too?  And why is the water tan and yellow and the leaf blue?   This image was only cropped.  mmmmm more mysteries of life...
