Earlene Williams nods in agreement with the preaching of Pastor Jarvis J. Hanson during the Fall Revival at Galilee Missionary Baptist Church on 14th Avenue South. Hanson, of Chicago, was the guest revivalist for the three-day event.
Fr. Leo Schneider waves hello to a parishioner as he processes down the center aisle at Church of the Holy Name to begin the 8:30 a.m. Mass. Sunday is anything but a day of rest for Schneider. He officiates a 10 a.m. service at another church and then races back to Holy Name to preside over the 11 a.m. Mass.
"Porchfest! (Everybody Dance Now)"
While a professional Hip-Hop dance crew was sound-checking their PA with some tunes, these civilians hijacked the dance floor to shake what God gave 'em. This year's Porchfest was a rollicking good time up and down 17th Ave.
"Last Day of Summer"
Siblings Jeffton and Alexis played with their yet to be named pet turtle at Powderhorn Park on what turned out to be a beautiful and warm, final day of summer. The turtle belonged to a friend and was given to them when the friend could no longer be responsible for its care.
"Sitting Bull with gas mask, Cedar and 38th"
An interesting mural on a Cedar Ave. building near the corner of 38th Street makes this otherwise ordinary structure stand out. I'd love to know the meaning of it or what inspired the artist to create it.
Who else has noticed this dear, little house tucked on the south-east side of Powderhorn Park? It has always been a favorite of mine. Between the architecture and the garden—what a little gem of a home.
Having sanded off layers of peeling paint, Yuliya McCallum applies a coat of forest green to the wood trim on her porch in the 3200 block of 16th Avenue South. McCallum and her husband bought the home in March and want to add screen windows to the porch.
It is always a surprise to discover something along your path that you have never taken notice of before. How long has this face been here? I had never even noticed the cabinet before today, let alone the face. No matter how long this cabinet has been sitting on the corner of the park at 34th and 10th Avenue, making art out of mundane objects is always appreciated.
Kaja Martinson, left, and Betsy Hawes give their daughter, Finley, 1, room to climb as they relax in the backyard of their home on 13th Avenue South. They were also keeping an eye on their other daughter, Ezra, 4, who was playing on a nearby tree swing.

I found this etching on a peace pole along Chicago Avenue between Lake and 34th. The hidden art in Powderhorn is one of the things that I adore about this neighborhood. She's only about 3 or 4 inches high, and I would never have noticed her if I weren't out walking!
