  1. Looks like a late winter haze has settled on the city. Nice shot and nice geometry in yesterday's post too.

  2. Wow, if I had to choose an unusual post about Chicago this would be is. It looks cold and windy.

    Please, whatever you do, don't visit my blog today (Wednesday) as I lost my mind, I think owing to medicine from my hospital stay, and posted some really gross stuff. I certainly don't want to spoil your day.
