f/22 @ 1/8; ISO 100; 85mm; tripod. This is Naperville's historic downtown shopping area. It is a place for neighbors to shop, meet their friends, sit at outdoor dining areas and just enjoy the area.

Thanks, Diane! This street is usually crowded with shoppers and sight seers. I was there at 7:00 am to miss the crowds, traffic, and to get the morning sunlight. Naperville has been voted as the #1 place to live and raise children. #646291
