These photos show the transition of the Gold Coast neighborhood in Chicago, Illinois from January 2013, to yesterday evening (May 11th, 2013). The Gold Coast is home to many historic mansions, which date back to the late 1800's, and is intermixed with many average size highrises. These pictures depict one of my favorite changes of seasons; From hibernation to life. As much as I enjoy the warm days and nights of summer in Chicago, as a born and raised child of Illinois, there will be something I always enjoy about "Light Jacket Season".
