I'm was in  Chicago recently at a conference and posted photos from that trip last week. After doing that I thought I'd post some shots from one of my many previous visits to the Windy City.

This is a night view of the Crown Fountain at Millennium Park, with Michigan Avenue in the background. It was taken in October of 2006 when Millennium Park had just been open for two years.

Another photo from my stay in Chicago a week ago. This is the view from the pedestrian bridge in the Hyatt Regency Hotel, looking north across the Chicago River.

Chicago at Night

From my recent stay in Chicago, this is the famous Wrigley Building at night. The Chicago River is in the foreground.

I was at a conference in Chicago at the end of last week. I was staying right in the center of town, and so could get out early in the morning and at night to take photos. Unfortunately I only had one small camera with me, but I made do. This is the Du Sable Bridge on Michigan Avenue at sunrise on Friday.

California Coast

This is the aptly named Hardy Rock along the coast of Northern California. The photo was taken from Highway 1, just south of the tiny town of Hardy at the outlet of Hardy Creek. I sense a pattern.

Oregon Coast

Here's a photo from last summer of the Pacific coast in southern Oregon. I like the clouds on the horizon. This spot is just south of Gold Beach, Oregon, and the island on the left is Hunters Island.

Winter Celebration

Now that we're in March, and winter is beginning to feel like it's over, I thought I'd post a celebratory photo. This is the Minnesota Capitol building in St. Paul with fireworks from the St. Paul Winter Carnival. The photo was shot on film in January of 1999. It may look manipulated, but the painterly effect is the result of snow that was falling at the time of the photo.
