Chicago is an amazing, wonderful city. It's shame how bad the crime is right now.

I'm going to Chicago next month on October 20th and I was wondering what's there to do never been I'm mostly going because I'm a fan of the mobster scene such as Al Capone and Dillinger and some of the museums

A beautiful perspective put into another beautiful perspective. Very beautiful (as if I didn't say that enough).

Some one else posted a shot of this a while back, and was gracious enough to allow me to edit it into a color splash version, it looked great, I think this one which is an awesome shot would look good in color splash as well. just my humble opinion
