City mouse or country mouse? I'll always choose country, but...
... I love exploring new places and that includes cities.
Recently I was lucky to spend a few hot but awesome sunny July days in Chicago with my granddaughter. With input from friends and websites, 11-year old Kate and I saw and experienced city in the summer - architecture, art, sights, food, informative guides and other tourists from around the world. Also, a few line-ups (be warned: buy tickets ahead of time online if at all possible)
Both of our iPhone cameras were put to excellent use.
|La Grand Jatte-1884, Georges Seurat|
|Woman, Joan Miró, 1934|
|The Old Guitarist, Pablo Picasso|
from his Blue Period, 1903-4
|Naum Gabo, Linear Constructions 1950's|
|Walking Man II, Alberto Giacometti, 1960|
Our last day was spent at the Chicago Botanic Garden, an extensive property with many types of gardens and plants and a butterfly conservatory. Kate took all these awesome photos.
