Flaming maples, bleached pavilions

After Sunday night on the El Día de los Muertos, the Burnham pavilions will close. The green of the maples will return in spring; the Zaha and the Ben, only in memory. (This spectacular photo courtesy our indefatigable correspondent Bob Johnson. Click on it to see a larger version)

They look like game pieces in the smaller sized photo. Very cool.

I can't say that they will be missed IMO... they were more of a hassle than anything else. 2010 will bring a whole new aspect on Chicago's public places now that the city is cutting out everything from the budget... sad indeed.
