Chicago(keh) for the Holidays. {Explored}

Newer Older

Ah....Chicago! My second full day here and I'm loving it as always! There is just something about this city that i love more than anything! I have been looking forward to this trip now that I have a nice camera and have been envisioning all of the cool pictures I want to take. However, it is sort of difficult to take pictures when your fingers are numb and the wind is blowing at 1 million miles an hour! How do those of you who live in the cold all the time do it?!!

It is a blustery 27 degrees outside and I'm nice and warm in Starbucks enjoying a chai and a muffin. My hotel does not have free internet (boo!!) and I have been a pretty bad flickr-friend so far this week. I will be catching up on your streams as much as possible today!

Well, I know this is just a picture of blurry lights, but I didn't want to take my gloves off to focus and so this is what I got! I decided that I liked the result anyway :-)

Happy Bokeh Wednesday!!

    Well I'd certainly say you've given us a cool Christmas light effect here Em...I like it ! it ! Nice to see that fabulous city ready for Christmas. Now tell me, why couldn't you be there next week ??? I'm scheduled to fly up Tuesday if all goes according to plans and I'll be there through early afternoon Thursday. With that new spanking Nikon D7000, I spot you a mile away if I saw you shooting anywhere along the Magnificent Mile....and btw...I'm a little picky here but in comparison to New York, I'll take Chicago any day. Yes, I've been to the theater district for numerous plays and visited some fine restaurants in NYC but I still prefer CHICAGO !!! Have a wonderful weekend Em and stay warm !

    i live there! next time you go to the corner stores and buy a packet of hand warmers. You pop them and then you stick em in your pockets. They keep your hands real warm esp, if wearing leather gloves :3
