Chicago has grown up next to one of the great bodies of fresh water in the world, and Chicagoans treasure their lakefront.
Here is what I captured on a recent wintery morning in January as the sun rose and the lakefront came to life.
In the 1960′s I taught junior high school students in Ethiopia with the Peace Corps. My two years there stretched and challenged me, at the same time I was learning about Ethiopian people and culture. Photos and stories from that time are collected in a 50-page, spiral bound book.
