Check out the winning picture for the Skokie Park District's recent Flickr contest.
Congratulations to Skokie resident Kathy Carey who took this stunning Fall photo to win the Skokie Park District's Flickr contest recently. Carey moved from downtown Chicago to Skokie about a year ago. She said she's had to adjust her photo subjects from city scenes to "more nature-centric ones." "I've found two places that have quickly become favorites to photograph - the Emily Oaks Nature Center and the Botanic Gardens," Carey said. The little girl running in the picture is Carey's granddaughter, which she named the photo after - "Nellie." Like Skokie Patch on Facebook and see Carey's photo as our featured banner.
