Chicago is fast becoming my favorite American city. The people are so friendly and the city is stunning. I love Chicago and would like a condo there someday to spend my Spring, Summer and Winter. When I am there I have a hard time believing that I am in bumf__k Illinois. Chicago is a phenomenon.

My kind of town, Chicago is! I like your little dope-ass corner of Chicago, and you have done one hell of a job photographing it for us! Well done, and I do hope we are treated to more pictures from you in this thread over the changing of seasons!

^Shots were taken in Bucktown/Wicker Park/Logan Square (possibly the fringe of Humbolt Park).

Thanks for the compliments everyone!
