Baby, it’s cold outside!
Chicago may be a steaming sauna in the summer, but just a few months ago, you were likely to turn into a human popsicle from just a few seconds outside. To be honest, I appreciate Chicago much more in the winter time, no matter how brutally cold it may be. It’s a magnificent winter wonderland that offers those who dare to venture outside a plush snow-covered scenery that’s likely to make you forget that your hands are frozen, that your limbs are about to fall off, and that you’re on the verge of contracting frostbite. I was sorting through my Chicago photos from earlier this year, and realized that I never posted any from that trip, so here’s a mini photo essay of the Windy City, as seen through my lens.
YES, it was COLD! Got colder as the days progressed…
The architecture in Chicago is a true feast for the eyes.
