The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
My street, snowed over.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
I saw this cheap trunk at Home Goods and wanted it for a coffee table, but couldn't transport it home. The next day, after work, I went back to measure it and see about shipping. And I decided just to strongarm it back on the bus. When Mom called to ask if I'd found out about the cost, I said, "Oh, yeah, shipping is free." Just a little sweat!
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
My neighborhood under snow.
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
Where did the cars go?!
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
