Chicago Weekend - Trekkers have arrived in Chicago

We have arrived in Chicago ... Our train departed Port Huron early this morning and after a great ride across Michigan state we arrived in Chicago around 11:30 a.m. The weather today has been great and made for some great photography.  We spent most of today exploring the river district around the Trump tower. We finished our day with dinner at the House of Blues. Great food and great music.  

Some of our photography highlights tomorrow are a visit to Millennium Park, the Magnificent Mile, the Hancock Observatory for a birds eye view of the city, and a night photo shoot along the river front. Here is a selection of images from our first day photographing in Chicago.  

Kick off our visit to Chicago with lunch.  How handy is this, right at our table.
