Three Days in Chicago :::

After California, my next stop on the journey was Chicago. A photography acquiantance of mine and friend, Evy, got married to the man of her dreams that weekend. :)

While in the area, I got to reconnect with many people I know, which was such a treat & so special. The day before Evy & Tim's wedding, my very good friend, Heather and I took a few hours and went downtown Chicago. Fun, fun, fun. I just love downtown Chicago!

San Francisco International Airport
My view as we were taxing out to the runway at San Francisco International Airport. I just love, love this image. Maybe it pays off having a 6am departure. Maybe.

The view from my plane window, just shortly after take off from San Francisco for Chicago

Chicago  Michigan Ave.
Michigan Avenue in downtown Chicago is a very busy place.

Chicago  Michigan Ave.
"Every day they pass me by, I can see it in their eye; Empty people filled with care, headed who knows where. On they go through private pain, living fear to fear. Laughter hides the silent cries only Jesus hears. People need the Lord. People need the Lord. At the end of broken dreams, He’s the open door. People need the Lord. People need the Lord."

Love the photos! Chicago seems like a cool place to visit. The Bean is awesome!! Maybe someday, I'll go there and take a look around.
I couldn't help but notice but you and Heather are wearing the same shirt in different shots. So... do you own the same shirt or did she give it to you? =P

Your friends are so cute. I love how blue your eyes are. They're gorgeous!! :) I love capturing people's eyes and you're are a dream come true. =D
