The leaves on the trees bloomed, the flowers flagrant, and the sky cloudless. After a long and grueling winter, spring has finally approached Chicago. As the weather becomes warmer and increasingly consistent, many people tend to gravitate toward the outdoors.
Chicago’s 2014-12015 winter was a brutal one like never before, and was compared to the blizzard of 2011, where Chicago saw almost as much as 20 inches of snow in one falling.
Kenwood also plants flowers in the raised beds out in front with bright, eye-popping colors. Tulips, roses, and daisies are just some of the plant life located outside the building.
In the back of the school, though, there are many trees; but one sticks out, the redwood tree. Its beautiful purple leaves and the wide-set wingspan make it a sight to see at Kenwood.
Kenwood is home to many students, many of whom enjoy the spring weather. Gym classes usually go outside for class to soak up the sun; people tend to hang around Hyde Park more than usual. Students also walk around to the store and try to race back, so as not to miss their ride!
The life after death concept of the photos is shown through the bountiful amount of nature and the playful nature of the students having fun in the sun.
