On The Cusp Of Spring

This photo was taken in April 2015 as I walked alone the lakeshore in Chicago. It was a day where it was warm in the sunlight but the last few gusts of winter air reminded everyone to not get too comfortable. I was drawn to the sight of a handful of people enjoying the nice day engulfed by the bright waters of Lake Michigan.
