I have been pretty busy lately and it has been getting darker earlier so there has not much time to get out and take photos. So I decided to revisit Chicago.

Here is a “looking up” photo of the Trump Tower.
Thanks for stopping by. Come again soon. If you would like to receive an email when I post new photos and/or blog entries head on over to the subscribe page and enter your email.

Last weekend I was in Chicago for the American Society for Radiation Oncology’s multidisciplinary thoracic oncology meeting. It was a good conference. There was lots of good science and medicine presented in the meeting, but after two and a half days in an air-conditioned hotel I really needed to get outside and see some of the city.

First stop was Millennium Park. I had been there a couple of times before, but only briefly on both occasions. I had a great time walking around and through the “Cloud Gate” sculpture (below), and watching people interact with it. It is like the ultimate fun house mirror, outdoors, and open to everyone.Continue reading
