The start of spring and melting ice

I was wondering around at Tower Beach in Winnetka before a meeting and captured the remains of this past winter.

A tour of Lincoln Park Zoo - Mozart's Concerto #5

I spent lunch wandering the zoo with my camera. I'm totally amazed how much Lincoln Park Zoo transformed during the 12 years I was away.

Below the first film is a clip of a Rhino playing around.

Sun shining from the forest to the sea (Lake Michigan)

It was a sunny day that started off at a local forest preserve and ended at Montrose harbor, watch ice fishermen.

East Rogers Park, Evanston and the Forest

During a break I first drove over to a beach in East Rogers Park and then drove over to one of the local forest preserves and snapped a few shots.

It was so sad to see homeless men sleeping out on a pier. Two men were guarding them and told me not to come any closer, yet they posed for me when I let them know I was going to put my pictures up on YouTube. They were excited they were going to be famous.

Showing a friend downtown Chicago

I was showing a friend around Chicago. While we were downtown we heard tons sirens going off. Turns out there was a fire at the Bank of America Building right near where we were.

We started off the day at Montrose Harbor and then went to the Bean. We strolled around MillenniumPark, and then on to State Street, etc.
