I'm on fire!

 -Lake Michigan via Chicago, Illinois
THIS is what I love to photograph.  THIS is what I'm good at. I very rarely advertise family portraits because although I don't mind taking photos for people when they seek me out, I want to be remembered for my visual art. Does that make sense?  THIS is what fuels me.  THIS is who I am.  THIS is Ms. Ruin. ::leaves heart on the floor:: ♥
::cough::  Now that I've got that out of my system.  Here are some other photographic highlights from my trip to The Windy City in October.  I still have a bunch more to sort through plus some really cool pics of a fantastic lighthouse in Kenosha, Wisconsin on the banks of Lake Michigan.  Talk about brrrrrrrr!  For now, enjoy these...
The world famous Chicago Theater
Ferris Wheel at Navy Pier --yes, I did ride!
Lighthouse at Navy Pier on the banks of both the Chicago River and Lake Michigan
Hillside, Illinois --the final resting place of Al Capone.
Lots of old and beautiful monuments in this gorgeous cemetery.
Does this one really need a caption?  Okay, fine.  This is Cloud Gate at Millenium Park.  Affectionately known as The Bean.  "Sonia, you gotta go see the bean!!"
I love this one.  Believe it or not, it's probably a favorite.  I'm strange that way.
Currently the tallest building in the world --Willis Tower.  Formerly knows as The Sears Tower.  Yes, went up to the very top of this one too.  Want to see those pics?  Stay tuned!
If you enjoyed these photos, don't forget that you can repin all of my work to your boards on Pinterest!  Happy Pinning.  :)
