Default Walking Around...Finally (Caution 7 Images)

Winter has been holding on for dear life here in Chicago. Yesterday, I finally was able to walk around a little. It was kind of hazy but the sun was visable (today it was snowing again) and the temperature was in the high 40's. I was thinking that spring was coming.

kudos for shots #5 and #6 only on the basis of personal preference as all are crisp, clean shots.

I look forward to future postings as the grip of winter gives way.

Very nice.....

I was there like 3 months ago or so. I was around that mellinium park where the big fountains with the faces...and I saw two fellows walking around with some very nice photo equipment. I wonder if they were anyone from these forums.

They were talking about catching the reflections off the buildings as they walked by me. Only thing I remember. (Gasp! Maybe it was you?)
