Last year we decided to visit Chicago for our family vacation.  If you'd asked me earlier in my life to travel to a city for a vacation I would have said no way.  I'm not big on crowds and the hectic pace and really think I'd much rather see the natural wonders across the country but that is changing.  The downtown area of Chicago had so much to offer and the photo ops were unlimited.

The photos in this post were taken with my Canon T1i and my Tamron 28-270.  I did some effect editing in Picasa as some of these just seemed to ask for it.
