We just returned from a quick road trip to Chicago to see our son–a rare treat! With two days set aside for travel and only two days for visiting and sightseeing, we had a lot to pack into a short amount of time. As always, the time flew by and we barely scratched the surface of what that city has to offer. Chicago sign 72pxWoman on pier 72pxAs you might imagine, my cameras were always with me and my eyes were open for ways to document our brief stay. And it’s intriguing to see what I’ve captured once I return home.Ice cream 72pxFaces 72pxWhat strikes me is the diversity we experienced in such a short time. From quiet neighborhoods to the beach, trendy restaurants to city skyscrapers, we gained colorful glimpses into life here.Conservatory bench2Aviator art 72pxI’ll admit that the size of this city and the time it takes to get from place to place is a bit overwhelming to me. It’s definitely worth the effort, though, to have these new and interesting experiences.Oysters 72 pxSailboat 72pxWe managed to squeeze a lot into our two days here! And I know that more adventures await when we return again.




  1. I love seeing the world through your eyes. We haven’t been to Chicago for over 10 years; your images made me want to visit it again. Soon!

    • Kirstin, we only see tiny bits on our short trips; there’s so much to see and do there!

    • Thanks, Maite! It’s a fun place to roam with a camera (or three).

    • Staci, street art is my weakness. I love finding and photographing it!
