@Phil David Morris, 2012: And boy did they like to leave behind what they ate in Saskatoon as well! It was like walking on eggshells avoiding those mounds. :-)

Francisco Romero from Carbajal de la Legua, Spain

Gorgeous! Wonderful light and ambiance to the frigid winter days of Chicago. I lived at 10-15 min walking from here, and used to go the Imax with each new film. Thanks for showing!

@Francisco Romero: I knew if I posted enough photos from around Chicago, I'd find out eventually what neighborhood you lived in. :-) If only you were able to enjoy the mild winter we had this past year.

Beautiful building. The water looks like glass! Do people skate on it if it was totally frozen?

This is a great scene here - and I love the light. What a gorgeous building. I also have to chuckle becasue we have a million geese around here, we have a huge pond out front of our offices and the geese look so funny as they stand on the frozen ice here, sort of like old men waiting for a bread truck to ome by ..Love this :-0
