Here in Chicago we are bracing for what some are calling a "snowpocalypse" or a "snownami" given that it may be our largest snowfall on record in over 100 years. They are also predicting up to 25foot waves on Lake Michigan just a few blocks from my house. I guess we shall see.

 

Even though the ground is already white, I wanted to share a picture from downtown Chicago back at the beginning of January before we entered our 3-month snow cover. This little park, which still had up its holiday lights, is located on Chicago Ave, just a block off of Michigan Ave and next to one of Chicago's historic fire stations. I have always thought they should just leave these lights up all year long.

 

Good luck to my fellow Chicagoans the next few days, and to anyone else in the path of this storm.

The Great Lakes, this past winter, were 85% frozen over. A few weeks ago I checked out some of the amazing ice formations that ensconced the Lake Michigan shoreline in Chicago. With Spring finally arriving here, I'll post these shots as a farewell to winter … and a testament to its sleeting fame :)

Taken back in October. Still trying to get all of 2007 posted!

So I received some great advise to stay at the Holiday Inn in Chicago because of its awesome views of the river. I loved this shot at sunset. I'm open to any advise on cropping suggestions or post processing. Let me know what you think!

I may not be the first person to take a photo of the Chicago skyline from this angle, but as my friend Claudia G. Kukulka reminded me, that doesn't mean I can't take my own :) Plus I liked the light. Wishing you all smooth sailing in the week ahead!

Evening view of the Southwest Chicago skyline from Chicago360 (John Hancock Centre Observatory).

This view has been shot and seen countless times by others but witnessing it for myself for the first time doesn't make it less breathtaking. I can't resist snapping away and just glad my handheld P&S Panasonic camera did a decent enough job.

Going through some old photos and found some that I'd never developed.

Walking the shores of Lake Michigan with my hair sticking out in about fifteen directions at the bleak first hours of the day. An early morning walk is my remedy to conquer a jetlag… - Chicago, IL, USA

A great friend of mine let me use his fish eye. Levels, saturation and sharpness were applied.

Taken from Montrose Harbor just before sunrise.

I had a lot of fun with this one. I actually shot this during the day. There are so many more thing to take pictures of in a large city. I look forward to going back there someday.

22nd July 2012, the Blue Hour at Chicago over the bay

Chicago is a tough city and needs a little sports love every now and then. So proud of this team and franchise! This was from 2013 Stanley cup celebration. In the foreground is Maggie Daley park just under construction at this point and now complete this year.

Back to chicago! I took so many photos on my trip - but only uploaded a few because I was busy and didn't have good internet access - and now I don't even know where to start with uploading them! Stay tuned for lots more birds...

 

Rush hour is in full swing on the UP-NW line and outbound Metra #609 breezes into Norwood Park as the city awakens to the warm glow of a new day.

I should have writen down the names of the animals in the first two shots but I didn't. The one's below I thought were pretty cool because of the way they just had there eyes above water.

This is a Jacana

They are identifiable by their huge feet and claws which enable them to walk on floating vegetation in the shallow lakes that are their preferred habitat. They have sharp bills and rounded wings, and many species also have wattles on their foreheads.[4]
