Chicago in October. On a sunny but cool October morning, I ventured into the city of Chicago by train. Not a cloud filled the early morning blue sky. For certain, the scenery form the train window had changed significantly since the previous month. As always, a monthly expedition to the great city of Chicago brings me back yearning for more. Inspiration. The world that surrounds endures to provide inspiration. If we simply allow those things that surround to inspire us. As our attitudes define us, so too, is how we view the world. Appreciation. A beautiful way to approach each day. And of appreciation, aside from the city itself, or any city, the fashionable windows and the artistry behind them lures and continues to inspire me from behind the lens

With the Autumn season in full swing, the windows of fashion offer layers of delight and bold, heavier fabrics and embellishments that marry the season. The windows are a constant revolving window into fashion’s world. But perhaps, amidst the bold statements, are classics and timeless windows of fashion’s constant. For me, the windows of Max Mara resoundly have proclaimed a timeless elegance behind their mass of windows. With appreciation, a look at the glory of the striking mannequin swathed in October fashion

Of course, fashion being forward, the harkening of Winter can be found behind October’s windows of fashion. Plaid appeal, no doubt, paired with layers of knitted warmth and layered warmth. Alas, the winds of Winter await. Fashion’s warmth will beckon us once again…

And of the embellishments of the Autumn in the city of Chicago? Michigan Avenue is always a stunning road with sidewalk visuals of seasonal appeal. Visual focal points to garner our attention against the traffic and bustle of the city, skyscrapers and iconic buildings of fashion and the world of retail that surrounds. Worthy of our glance, for certain.

Consider the windows of fashion. The art form and visual merchandising that creates a stir, a cause and affect, or merely an appreciation is certainly worth focussing upon. Our world changes. Fashion’s windows change. Never to be quite the same again. Still moments in life, from behind the lens, that I will continue to compose from behind my camera. In appreciation, indeed…

Onward,
