The Windy City - Chicago

I went to Chicago this week as part of a University field trip. It was my first time and I have to say it is a really impressive city. I'm still going through the process of uploading and editing my photos, but I'll share the first batch with you.

- A neat little park just west of downtown. I can't remember the name of it though.

- The McCormick Tribune Campus Center at the Illinois Institute of Technology. The train station is incorporated into the facility. For those familiar with AutoCAD, this was the startup graphic you would see when you launch the program.

I look forward to the remainder. I've always been curious about Chicago. I think its presence on the shores of a great lake helps.

Great photos. The railway station at Tribune Campus looks intriguing. I've not seen a photo of that before.

Great photos Marc. Glad you enjoyed your time. You had some of the best stretch of weather to enjoy the city over the last week that I can remember having in many years.

I was also in Chicago last weekend, and it certainly was beautiful Fall weather, with wonderful light -- Marcanadian's pix capture this, IMO.

The weather was amazing. We really lucked out. I was there for six days and I couldn't complain.
