With our trip to Chicago complete some interesting photos did not make the various specific topic blog postings.
Starting with the long and thin – from commuter trains to 70 floor condo buildings.
Statuary on a South Michigan Avenue building.
Nearby the neighbors outdid them with this relief (only a portion of the entire sculpture).
The Carbide and Carbon Building’s gold top on a sunny morning.
O’Hare Airport is proposing to build a new terminal and is asking for the public’s opinion with a vote. It is Chicago – vote early, vote often.
It seems most of the newer hotel rooms in the city have photos that look like this – so I took my own abstract view of modern buildings.
If not modern, at least historic and modern combined.
Every time I go by this clock I look for a good angle to take a photo, but something always seems to be in the way. This angle is unobstructed, but doesn’t do it justice.
Wandering early one morning in the theater district I decided to focus on the signs.
Even the local McDonalds got into the act.
A snowy morning in Millennium Park.
Snow was gathering on ‘the bean’, and would come off in interesting ways.
It is an interesting view from underneath.
No concert at Pritzker Pavilion today!
Art in the snow behind Aon Tower.
The Chicago Cultural Center had a display on Jazz Music in the city.
The play Chicago was also featured – including some of the real life models for Roxie Hart – Beulah Annan and Belva Gaertner.
Both Beulah and Belva had been charged with murder in 1924, but were acquitted. Amazingly the first play was in 1927 and Belva attended the premier!
