From above and touching the Sky, Tilt Shift, Chicago


I love doing Tilt Shift. It is just so much fun. It is hard to find good photos to do it with. We had a corner room on the 16th floor of the Wit hotel and had great views of the city. Although the last 2 shots are from a walk to a restaurant. I was very excited to have so many photos on this trip that I can 
try tilt shift on. It makes me giddy.

Cloud Gate,The Bean, Chicago



This sculpture is by Anish Kapoor and called Cloud gate or by the nickname, the Bean. We could also see the sculpture from our hotel room. The sculpture is over 110-tons, and is 66 feet long and 33 feet high. It is pretty amazing piece of public art. I know it is cliche to visit and take a photo of yourself in the reflection but what the heck, why not. It is beautiful!

Color and Shape, Chicago


They have had this noodle in Boston and it says do not climb on it. Of course, that invites people to climb on it. It was funny watching people trying to get on the top.



The wonderful Grant Park, love the music venue pictured here

The eyes have it! Shedd Aqurium


What more can I say. Cool eyes if you ask me. I always wonder how animals and fish see.
