Welcome to Chi-Town!

Spent 4 nights in Chicago. Incredible city.

This is some of what I saw:










































Walking along the lake front...















On the Architecture River Cruise













Frank Lloyd Wright's 'Robie House'





University of Chicago campus

Looks like it was a very windy day along the lakefront when you were there. I would assume it was somewhat cool, though at this time of the year it's still comfortable when the wind is off the lake.

Thanks for these great photos! I'll be there in less than 3 weeks and I absolutely can't wait to be back in the city I love!

+1 Great photos chopsky...although its pretty hard to go wrong when you're photographing the awesomeness that is Chicago (unless you show the Marina City too much those are some ugly towers)
