I've been able to travel a bit lately (woohoo!) and one of the destinations I visited was Chicago. I spent time with my dear friend, Val. (She, by the way, is an amazing graphic designer. See for yourself here). Our time together was filled with laughing, talking, city exploring, and photographing. You know you have a good friend when she's always willing to join you on photo excursions! Poor thing always has to put up with me trying to get the 'perfect shot.' We made our way around the city, stopping to appreciate some famous and not-so-famous landmarks. Even though we'd seen most of these sights many times before, it was rewarding to take the time to pause and reflect on their beauty.
This was the most common sight during the weekend - me with camera in hand.
Here are just a few of the images I captured during the visit:
