as seen in Chicago

I spent some time in Chicago with some of my colleagues today. Here is a bit of what I saw. First, falling presents at Macy’s.

 

Everyone knows that if you find yourself at Macy’s in Chicago during the Christmas season that a visit to The Walnut Room is not to be missed.

 

The Bean (Cloud Gate) is like a magnet for photographers. I was unable to resist.

 

I saw two stars and a bean.

 

It was a beautiful day with unusually warm weather for December.

 

The London House (center) and… well…you know.

 

The Chicago River looking particularly grand today.

Thanks for stopping buy!

soon i will be done…
