It was a great day spent on the pier, and you got some really nice shots. Ferris wheel shot is very cool.

Chicago looks so cool - have always wanted to visit the city of Oprah!


Tim-It was a great day, wasn't it? I did like the way the Ferris wheel shot turned out.

Have Baby-Chicago was pretty amazing. It was the first time we had a chance to spend some time there during the summer, so I really enjoyed the opportunity to get out on the water (I love boat rides, as you'll learn in coming weeks) :lol:

Dominique I've always wanted to visit Chicago and plan to in the next couple of years. I will be sure to visit Pier 1927. Really neat. Thanks for sharing. I really enjoy the blog.



Steve-Thanks! We've found Chicago to be a great place to visit summer or winter. I think you'll love it, especially some of the historical and architectural sites.
I'll be posting more stories about Chicago over the next few months...we managed to pack in a lot of stuff into the few days we had there.


I'm inspired by how much you did in Chicago - a true traveler! The shots of the ferris wheel and the American Flags are so crisp!


Lorraine-I've got tons more Chicago stories...we really packed a lot in during the several extra days I stayed after the conventions. I figured it was a great chance to see a bit more of Chicago and took full advantage of the opportunity to find lots of story ideas!
The day we were on Navy Pier really was pretty perfect for taking pictures, too.
