Aurora, IL

Melting snow, harsh winter light, blue sky. I decided to head over to Aurora to have a mozy around with the camera to see what I could find. I’ve lived in nearby Naperville for almost 15 years, but never really walked around Aurora. Aurora is somewhat depressed when compared to Naperville, but shoots of gentrification are visible and ironically thats why I decided to head over to Aurora, everything in Naperville downtown is a little too tidy/cleaned up in Naperville, I was looking for character and from my walk around Aurora, I think I found it and as mentioned, signs that it to is getting tidied up to!

Cheers Jonathan
