We'll be heading on vacation later this month, and if all the stars align, I'll get to do some shooting while we're there. We're going to Chicago - I grew up there but haven't really been back for a decade or so. So, taking husband & kids to see the sights (and Grandma). I'll get plenty of my own shots in, but I'm also looking for suggestions.

Itinerary is set already, and includes Field, Shedd, Science & Industry, Sears Tower, general city-wandering, Zoo, and a state park about 2 hours outside the city. Only major limitation is Shedd - no flash allowed, period. (Doesn't mean I can't get away with it in some areas, but I understand & accept their reasons.)

And potential (not packed yet!) equipment is D40, kit 18-55, zoom (up to 200 or 300 once I decide & get the rental order in), speedlight (sb700), variety of filters (polarizer, etc), as well as teleconverter. Can't take a tripod pretty much anywhere (and it's to much to carry alongside a toddler, anyway, so it's likely not even getting into the suitcase).

SO -- Challenge Me! If you were designing the assignments, what would you put on the list for the Windy City?

(Any tips for these locations also welcome!)

How about a triptych that tells the story of your trip? If you want to make it more challenging have a common object, shape or colour to link the three images.

I would get on Google Maps and select something like a 6-block area downtown. No cheating and looking at photos of that area.... just the Satellite view! I'd then set aside a few hours to walk that area and see what I could find to shoot.
