Chicagoland Redux

I havent been back to Chicago since 2008 and finally got a good paying job in Pittsburgh after two years of low wage garbage so I decided to take some time off before my new job and went to Chicago. I am originally from Chicagoland; Batavia to be exact, but moved away after 2nd grade so Im sort of from there. Anyways, heres my photos over about a 4 day span. Enjoy....

Well I stayed out by the airport, as it was the cheapest semi nice place I could find, so I had to drive through Oak Park everyday to get back there.

Chicago has a sort of clean stately feel. It's big,epic, and simple. Doesn't get anymore American than that. Thanks for capturing it.
