We lucked out that Chicago's Saint Patrick's Day celebrations were happening on the day we took my daughter in to Chicago. People were so happy and very willing to pose for the cameras. My thanks to all the lovely people I got lucky enough to photograph. I was thrilled to see the river green for my first time! Yowza!* However we were just in time to catch the police escorting all the young green partiers OUT of Milennium Park for drinking and fighting! But they all got happy and peaceful once they ended up at the Park curb... and then we were allowed to get in to see Cloud Gate and Crown Fountain.
