Random Chicago Photos •••Dial-Up Warning•••
I've been so inactive in the Photography Group for so long I thought I'd share a bunch of random shots of Chicago that I've taken over the past few months! :)

1. These really convey a sense of place.
I haven't been to Chicago since I was a little girl, but I can really feel the city through your photos. Great job.

2. About friggin' time
:hi:

I really like your Towers photos... all great. It's been awhile since I've been to Chicago. You've done a great job at capturing this wonderful (overlooked) city. Oh, and that last one? My imagination is running wild on that one. I see an evening project... go B&W... do some "creative" processing. Has an artsy feel to it. Like it.

Thanks.... and don't go so damn long between posting pics.

A pic a day keeps the neocons away

3. Chicago has so many awesome buildings to photograph
I've only been to the city a few times, but I loved just walking around downtown and looking at the beautiful older buildings. These photos are a nice reminder.

7. Sadly we usually tear down our older buildings...
instead of trying to save them. But there are still tons left over. :)

9. Nice. Reminds me of my time at Great Lakes
Naval Base.
We used to take the train down as often as possible.
Glad to see the old sign still there at Wrigley.
