    I like #4 and #5 the way the image comes off that shiny bean. At least after seeing these pics I can understand a pic that was nominated not long ago. I thought it was photoshopped.

    #5 was definitely my favorite.

    Looking at #6, I'd imagine you have a lot of difficulty finding the right clothes. I mean, I don't mind short legs, but this is ridiculous...:lol::lol::lol:.


    Nice series! My fav. is #8, where the harbor and the city are being brought together.

    Where in IL do you live? I was born in Arlington Heights and moved to Seattle at the age of 3. My family goes back every summer cause all my family is there. I have a TON (about 300) photos from when my girlfriend and I went into the city last summer. Nice shots!

    I think I can see myself in #9. I'm the one in the hat. No, not that one, the other one.

    I believe there is now an ordinance that everyone who visits Chicago is required to take a picture of their own reflection in the bean (Officially it's called "Cloud Gate")

    #1 is very cool. As someone who rides the train every day (well, the CTA trains are a little different, but still...) it speaks to me. #5 is a definite winner though.

    Oh and I actually have the print of this. She was holding both of our backpacks, one on her front and one on her back, and holding my digi cam. It's super cute.

    Sorry for the thread-jacking.
