Chicago -- winning at everything

A friend once told me that "many cities are built to fit the most people, but Chicago was built to be lived-in".  Having spent so much time in cities of all sizes, regions, and energies, I couldn't agree more -- Chicago is in a class of it's own.  The architecture in Chicago is a photographer's dream.  The variety of styles and delicate relationship between man-made and natural features in the city are unparalleled.  

If yesterday's photowalk helped me hit the ground running, today's casual exploration of the city got me excited to learn the personalities of all the locations coming up on this trip.  I can't wait to sample the local foods, learn about the regional histories, and get a sense of the culture and energy for all of the amazing stops along the journey.  Tomorrow I head out for two nights in Memphis, TN, so I have right around 24 hours to celebrate my favorite things about Chicago.  For tonight I predict deep-dish pizza and a leisurely cruise along Lake Shore Drive heading south.  For tomorrow, I'll go wherever the windy city takes me!  

Come back and check in with me tomorrow for more photos of Chicago!
