A week ago Sunday, David and I headed to Oak Park to tour the Frank Lloyd Wright studio and home as well as go on the walking neighborhood tour. I have been begging to go since I read the book "Loving Frank" by Nancy Horan last summer for book club. I absolutely fell in love with the whole story and his work has become a bit of an obsession with me. David and I both share a love of architecture so it was a perfect way to spend a summer day together.
In addition to drooling over all of the beautiful homes in Oak Park, I enjoyed taking over 100 photographs of the homes. I forced myself to only use the manual modes on my Canon SLR camera which was quite the challenge for me. Hopefully you'll agree that the hard work was worth it after viewing the pictures.
This house above sold for $3.9 million last year even though they were asking for more than $7million.
This is the front of his studio which was an addition to the house.
Can you see me by the door? I just didn't want to leave, it was the most beautiful neighborhood and I felt right at home.
