A few images from Chicago

I love Chicago for many reasons. While I can’t get over the fact that it’s all just *so* flat in the midwest, there’s something so incredibly American about Chicago. Perhaps it’s the fact that the city lifted itself out of its own muck; Or the incredible street wall along Michigan Ave; OR all those great buildings (Robie, Marina City, Monadnock, Carson Pirie Scott, all the Mies, IIT, to name a few….); OR the great food; OR the list goes on and on. If you’ve never visited Chicago before, here’s just a few images from my travels. Go there on your next trip! It’s so awesome.
