The Sculpture.  (pics of Chicago thanks to Louise!)

When I pictured Chicago, I pictured mostly huge, oily factories and rusted-out metal.  I knew there were some pretty parts, of course, but I did not know it was this beautiful!! Thanks for coming down Louise – it gave me the perfect excuse to get more aquainted with the city and with my lovely sister-in-law!

This blue heron flew only a few feet away from me, and due to my surprise, I was a little slow on the draw. 🙂

Here’s the blur of blue wings:
