Chicago: Grant Park - the day before the Obama election night rally (small photo set)

With the weather being so incredibly beautiful today, I decided to check out what was happening in Grant Park this evening. It'll be quite a different scene tomorrow evening (though I'm not going - don't want to deal with the massive crowds). The photos aren't anything overly special as I'm obviously below par on low light shooting, but I thought some people might be interested to see what's happening there.

I wouldn't say so! Very atmospherical and evocative pictures.
