    • Thanks, Tom! The paperweights are always a favorite stop in the Art Intstitute but not the easiest things to photograph behind glass and with all the lights reflecting. Still, every once in a while I manage to come away with a shot worth sharing.

  1. Terrific response to the challenge Sue! Loved that all of your images were local and you really showed us a range of sizes. Especially loved that you included the “cubbie” blue.

    • Thanks, Tina! The city has so much to offer and provides such a wealth of photo opportunities for all manner of subjects that it makes the perfect backdrop for many of these challenges. Go Cubs!!

  2. Hi, Sue. You picked many of my favorite spots in Chicago. The Chagall windows are my favorites too, as well as the paperweights! A lovely collection in blue.

  3. love the garden photo for mood and the way you led us there from large to small
    also – the paper weights sound like an interesting art display – 1,400? wow – I bet they look cool

    • Thank you so much for your comment! The paperweights are one of my favorite displays at the Art Institute, partly because it’s such a challenge trying to capture a halfway usable image with all the lights reflecting off the glass.

  4. You’ve shown many of my favorite things from the Chagall window to the paperweight room to the air show along the waterfront and, reverent pause, BASEBALL. Oh how I love Chicago!
