The title of this thread is horribly inaccurate. There *cannot* be too much Chicago. Especially, the way you do it.

Exactly how can you have too much Chicago?
I know I rag on Detroit A LOT but I lived there for over 20 years and DIDN'T like it I love Chicago.



I wonder why Chicago is compared to NYC



Bastard I was just looking at that building and going to take a pic.

Ha, I didn't think Wrigley Building when I saw this image but Bella Bacinos. Love their pizza, and when they do the free slices of deep dish on Michigan Ave, I come running


Not sure if other Chicagoan's may know this, but didn't that brown and white highrise burn last year? Looks like they cleaned up


I love this shot! The fat princess tower is resting in the clouds

Nice pictures. It's really unfortunate that you didn't get a chance to document some of Chicago's neighborhoods outside of Downtown like you have done for Hamilton, Ottawa, Toronto, and so on. I for one really wanted to see how you showed certain places.

Glad to see more Phillies stuff again. Based on your pictures, it looks like Dom Brown scored after that at-bat.

Excellent collection once again. The skyscraper shots in this set are some of the best I've seen.

My friend and I saw T3 at the AMC on Michigan. It was cool to walk down the middle of the set after the movie, we even had a Transformer perch on top of our hotel in one shot.

Well, you've done it again! Fantastic work, flar. Any other trips this year? You're lucky to have caught that fog, it looks really pretty in these photos (as well as the last). Keep it up.
