Pantone came to my mind last week as we traveled through northeastern Illinois. Most of our driving was through small and medium towns filled with homes typical of the Midwest... nothing out of the ordinary. Pantone experts obviously don't exert their influence in small town farm communities.
But then we drove into Peotone, IL (pop. 4, 142). I instantly thought of Pantone, and looked around for color!
Alas, there was none to be found ... until we turned the corner and got closer to downtown. Suddenly brilliant colors broke loose!
I think I captured the most brilliant bursts of color in this small town. Each bright building made me wonder who took the first bold step? Who is the brave soul that chose that particular green to cover such a very large building? Did alarmed neighbors call the mayor to object? Is this just the beginning of a trend as little Peotone, in the shadow of Chicago, strives for attention?
Blessed are they that dwell in Thy house: they will be still praising Thee. Selah. Psalm 84:4
Oh, and by the way... Happy 8th birthday to cHim Prints! Yay! Still here.
