|Sunday morning in Chicago: a view from the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower).|
|Chandelier in the Empire Room of Palmer House Hilton Hotel where we stayed.|
|Wall sconce, Palmer House lobby/bar.|
|Chagall's stained glass windows, Art Institute.|
|Sunlight on the fountain in the courtyard of the Art Institute.|
|View from a window of the Art Institute.|
|Night view of the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park, designed by Jaume Plensa.|
|As we walked through Millennium Park we heard music -- Tchaikovsky. It was a free classical concert in|
the Pritzker Pavillion, attended by a huge crowd. We listened for a few minutes and continued around the park.
|"Cloud Gate" -- also called "the bean" -- a sculpture by Anish Kapoor in Millennium Park.|
Day and night it reflects the admiring and fascinated crowds and the facing skyscrapers on Michigan Avenue.
In 24 hours we saw quite a bit, ate several good meals, and walked until I, at least, was ready to drop. I will be posting more photos of the Art Institute, the food, and the Willis Tower -- especially the glass-bottom balconies where one is suspended 103 stories above the ground.
