Walgreen's to purchase an umbrella. It did, however, usher in a beautiful blue sky on Friday after the cool front came through. Since it is still in the middle nineties here in Atlanta, you will not find me complaining about the cool weather I enjoyed in Chicago! Last year this time, Atlanta was flooded, so you won't find me complaining about the little bit of rain in Chicago either. In fact, I tried to take advantage of a different look the rain provides.
There is something cool about a rainy cityscape. You have great reflections that are different than on a sunny day. Above, you can see reflections of the buildings on the sidewalk. The El train is in the upper right hand portion of the photo, then you see the pedestrian walking down the street and finally the bicycles (or your eye might go in the opposite direction). Since I know how loud the train is and how quickly it moves, my eye goes to it first.
Ferris wheel on the sidewalk. Imagine what I looked like leaning over and taking a photo of the sidewalk! I had the place to myself with only a few joggers and delivery men sharing the place with me.
Metra train tracks is not an especially attractive location, but aren't these columns pretty? Especially with this burst of color!
