So I listened to all your suggestions, and tried to get everything in. I gotta tell you, though: between the traffic and the construction (every city I go to is under major road work for some reason) It wasn't easy!
I got Ditka's, Water Tower Place, Navy Pier, Millennium Park, The Shiny Thing, The Buckingham Fountain at Grant Park, Soldier Field, a bunch of different sky line shots, The Sears Tower, and some were from Lake Shore Drive.
I think I missed the Osaka Gardens, Uno, and Wrigley Field, which I'm gonna get on another day.
Hopefully you guys like it!! All taken for my buddies here! ;)
+John Widmer Its what's killing attendance at Sports Venue's everywhere in the US. Coverage on TV is so awesome, alot of the time, its just not worth going. I'm still gonna try though! lol +Sumit Kanaujiya Thanks Bud! +philipps manon Not so bad yet, about 58 today with a 10-15mph wind... Nippy, but not terrible!
Sight-seeing is fun. Great photos Jessi. Love Chicago. I think you got most of the major things :) Buckingham Fountain is iconic... you got that shiny bean thingy in Millennium Park (does it have a name?) I can see Trump Tower, Willis Tower (it will always be Sears Tower to me), Hancock building, Soldier Field... Did you hit up all these places in one day?
+Johnathan Chung Once my Post this morning topped out at comments, and I had promised people pics of Chicago, I figured, "Well, might as well get to work!" and headed out! Had some lunch, took some pics, grabbed some starbucks, took more, and headed back to the room! Did some light editing, and here I am! lol +Richesh Jha Thanks!
+Ben Huxhold I can't wait for the people who requested the different spots to stop by! Hopefully the photos make their day! +Ernest Larraga You should, its such an awesome city! +Tân Phước It is! Thanks!
+John Widmer Thats what I like to hear! Inspiration to the stomach! lol. +Spencer Redden Yeah, I'm noticing a huge comment/+1 differential between this morning and Now... I think I'm quickly learning why people stop by! lmao. +Todd Eddy Thanks for name dropping the place. I always new it as the shiny thing! lol
+mojib mirzaei My assistants, lefty and righty did it! I just send the signals down to them. lmao. All me buddy! Me, me, and nothing but me! (and a little lightroom! lol) +Anthony Fiorito If he was there, I would be pulling a Wayne's World in front of him... "I'm not worthy!! I'm not worthy!!" lmao
+David Stockwell Cheezborger, Cheezborger! Pepsi, no Coke! lmao... I know it well! +Les King I've posted some before, and I'll try to get some! I'll have a few photogs snap some for me! Hard to take pics of myself! lol +John Widmer I have no idea whats in Kentucky. May have to check with Guy Fieri! lol
Yes, Jessi, US time zone is getting late, and Euro/Asia is way early. Hope you had a good day today. I'm sure it'll pick up again tomorrow morning...lol Granted, another awesome picture of YOU probably would have garnered a bit more attention... :D
+César Vélez Yeah, I did, but I didn't post them as photos, I posted it as an album, but I guess when people comment on them as photos, it turns them into a post? I felt bad. I had people complaining that it was cluttering their stream! I didn't even do it! lol. +marc round Yeah, I had to! which is too bad because they lost the love that was given to them when I deleted the post. :(
Wow, Jessi great skylines. Chicago has some great buildings and surroundings. You did a great job at bringing it to life. I was there in 2002 an I haven't been able to get back so thank for the pictures. So many memories.. And thanks.
dear jessi if you want to sweet figure in future also then you will have to stay away from meat, and wins , smoking ,,, it is bad for your future,,, im only best wisher for your bright future ...... apply it
I love seeing shots of my hometown just makes me miss it that much more. I haven't been back to Chicago in almost 10 years which seems like an eternity but seeing your pictures makes me happy :P and you definitely have to go to Wrigley Field next time preferably during baseball season and actually watch a game from the bleachers.
See? +Jessi June Put up a pic of a building (however interesting it might be) and the post is still open. Put up a pic of YOU, taken by you, of yourself in a mirror, and the post hits it's limit. Kinda shows where our interests lie, huh? :D
+Jessi June nice photos. I always like to see how other people interpret their area and what seems important to photograph. You should consider going on Scott Kelby's Worldwide Photowalk; I think you'd enjoy going around with a group of other photographers just for the sake of photography for fun. Also, thx for candid -- you seem more real when you post those! Would have commented on that post, but if you post a sexy pic, comments fill up fast.
