Windy City Pictorial

Chicago, I miss it already. I am big city kind of girl, I want places to go and stuff to do. Chicago is like the cleaner version of NYC to me. Here are some visual representations from my trip... I was waiting for some of the photos that my sister took, she has a fancy DSLR, but she never sent them so.. you'll have to deal with my crappy pics.

Flamingo Sculpture, Federal Center Plaza
Chicago Art Museum
Buckingham Fountain (the weather was pretty bad that night, very windy and cloudy as you can tell by the pic)
The Bean
chicago crown fountain
Crown Fountain, this changes to different faces, there are two faces facing each other, and they make faces at each other and then water pours out of their mouths, kind of cool.

Dude shaving in a gas station parking lot. Yep.
Marina City. If you are familiar with the band, Wilco, you would recognize these towers right away. They are really neat, the first few floors are parking and then apartments.

chicago train
Train tracks above
Trump Tower in the distance
chicago willis tower view
View from the top of Willis Tower (formerly known as Sears Tower) This was a gorgeous day, great visibility.

View from Willis Skydeck ahhh!

Giant Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier
I love plane rides, how serene does that look?

@meganhickman/couturebeauty - thanks, I love that pic too. ;)

@elevethofapril - I did stand on it, it was pretty cool, better than the cn tower glass floor for sure, cause it's like a little deck that comes out of the tower, so glass on all sides of you..very very cool. thanks for the nomination! I will add it to my blog!
