Abe goes casual and takes in a baseball game

He's a Lincoln reenactor and I've seen him at Civil War reenactments. But he was a civilian today.

The Lockport Sleepers and the Chicago Salmon played a vintage baseball game according to 1858 rules at Cantigny in Wheaton, Illinois on October 24, 2009.

The inspiration for this picture is one that is on display for the photo contest at Cantigny's visitor center. I thought I'd try a different approach, but as I worked on this, I found I needed a MUCH different approach.

United Methodist Church of Batavia

Stchuck and I were walking back to our cars after the Batavia homecoming parade, and he aimed his picture in the direction of the sunset. Naturally, I took a look and noticed he had found a pretty cool scene. So credit for this image goes to him. Here's his shot.

This is technically a rear view of the church. Here's a picture from the front that I took in August.

Built in 1887 in the French Romanesque style, this building was designed by S.S. Beman, famed architect of Chicago's Pullman Community and designer of the 1884 Studebaker Building on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. (from Church web site)

Howard was kind enough to close the barn doors, and light the lanterns.to warmly light his tools. I tried lighting this with an off-camera flash, but kerosene beats strobe just about any day!
