Suburban Houses: Light and Shade
Looking for highlight and shadow in the far western suburbs of Chicago in an attempt to capture something interesting in the suburbs, I found these older houses. These suburbs are at the suburban-rural boundary of a large metropolitan region. Many of the houses--the clapboard houses--are remnants of the far-removed rural communities. None of these houses were built in the last fifty years, so their lots are small with big trees, and it is easy to capture their (often diverse) neighbors.
