  1. I always love to look at this ceiling! You have taken some beautiful pictures of Chicago. I’ve lived here for 11 years now and I still love walking into various buildings and just admiring their marble floors or ornate ceilings. The amount of awesome architecture this city has to offer never ceases to amaze me. Love the photos!!!

    • Hi Courtney: I was raised in Chicago and worked in the loop for years, yet I never tire of the city and I continue to discover new things it has to offer each time I visit. I love my home town, except for the winters 🙂

      • I must agree with you about the winters…..I’m currently apprehensive of what this upcoming one is to bring us, lol. Ah well, makes me enjoy summer that much more! Love your site, your stories and photos are always fun to sit and enjoy.
