Hi Friends! I’ve recently returned from Chicago where my nephew graduated from college (!). Together we went on a photography excursion to capture the beauty of the city at night. It’s really the most stunning skyline I’ve ever seen. We had a lot of fun running around getting shots from the beach, bouncing bridges, rooftop bars, and the 100-story Hancock Building. Did you know that at night little bunny rabbits run around Millennium and Grant Park downtown? It’s totally true, though I have no witnesses to confirm my story.

Here is Chicago at night through my eyes. Enjoy!
