Photo(s) of the Week: A Ludington Lake Michigan Sunset.

A while back I took a day trip over to Ludington in Michigan to capture the sunset. I watched the sun go down into Lake Michigan from Ludington State Park. Brush, sand dunes and other photographers added to the beautiful scenery of the evening.

Photo of the Week: A Beachside Park Bench in Chi-town.

It’s summer. Your along the lake shore. You’re at the beach. You see a park bench overlooking both. You’re in a big city. You might be at this romantic park bench spot at Oak Street Beach along Lake Michigan in Chicago. A beautiful, relaxing place.

Photo of the Week: A Chicago Summary up-top Willis.

Being up-top Willis Tower (will always be Sears Tower to me) at Skydeck Chicago provided a great way to end my recent Chicago stay. It provides three-hundred sixty degree views, this one immediately catching the eye.

It highlighted where I stayed and spent a lot of my time on this visit. The Congress Hotel, Hilton Chicago, Buckingham Fountain, Alder Planetarium, Lake Shore Drive and Lake Michigan, Grant Park and more are all in view. Great memories at all as I check them out again from above.

Photo of the Week: A Chicago Sign on Navy Pier.

Hanging out on Chicago’s famed Navy Pier I came across this travel signage while looking south along the shoreline. Where to go next? Mexico City? Buenos Aires? Frankfurt? Toronto (yes,yes for TBEX!)? Oh my the possibilities. The plane up-top the sign has other ideas though. It’s leading me to believe I should head to the sun. That might be a little to warm and tropical haha. The sun had a unique look to it all day, trying to get through the clouds. 🙂

Photo(s) of the Week: On the Path to a Skyline.

On an early winter morning I sat out on the path to a skyline, Chicago’s. These shots were on Chicago’s lakefront bike path that runs alongside the Lake Michigan shoreline. I was near North Avenue Beach just outside of downtown. You’ll usually find bikers and runners covering the pavement, but the early morning and cold meant I had an open path straight ahead!

Before hitting up the bike path, I spent some wintry times on the beach. You can check them out in Chicago + Winter + Beach = Beautiful.
