Chicago! That Toddlin' town!
We live about 2 hours or so north of Chicago. So, we visit there on occasion and it's a great place to take photos. 'Clouds Gate' is a sculpture well known in Chicago but most people call it 'The Bean'. It's located right downtown near the waterfront in Millennium park. EVERYONE takes their picture here when they come to Chicago.
To the right is a church in the heart of Downtown Chicago on the Magnificent mile that has beautiful grounds. It's so peaceful and such a quiet respite amidst the hustle & bustle. Above is a photo of a horse & carriage at Ghirardelli square near the old Watertower.
One of our visits to Chicago had this massive sculpture of 'American Gothic'. The original painting was by Grant Wood.

of the skyline on the river. Sorry that it's blurry.
On this particular visit to Chicago we went to see the 'Harry Potter' exhibit. We were not allowed to take photographs so I must have scanned this one out of a souvenir book. It's Hagrid's hut!
