Great pics. The wreathed lion at the Art Institute is especially striking.

Meeko Fabulous said...

I love the picture of the lit trees lining the trees with the beautiful blue sky as a backdrop! That is truly frame-worthy!

Thanks for the views of Chicago.

Love the red 'scarf' around the lion of the Peninsula Hotel on Michigan Ave.

Loved the "brown and gray" post and these are happy photos! You gave me a new perspective on winter (my least favorite season :( )

A Merry Christmas, Dean, to you and your loved ones!

Michael!

Happy Holidays to you as well!!

Naturgesetz!

I'm a little disappointed in it. In previous years, the Art Institute Lions were adorned with REAL evergreen wreaths during the Christmas season.

The current wreath isn't as wonderful IMHO!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Meeko!

That is a shot of the famous Michigan Avenue!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

m4m!

You're right. Chicago DOES rock!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Steven!

Most big cities will keep their decorations up until after Christmas. So get out there and take some pictures, silly!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Essay!

Thanks for taking a look and for the kind words!

Peter!

My, you do know your Chicago, now don't you?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Manon!

The same to you, my friend!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Fábio!

May you have a wonderful 2010 too! Love YOUR blog and YOUR work!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rick!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A happy and safe holidays to ALL of you!!

Gorgeous! Where can I get one of those stone lions for my doorway?

Wishing you a very Merry christmas, Dean!

Aries said...

Always love the holiday windows at the Marshall Field's (cough cough...."Macy's on State Street").

Have a great holiday, Dean.

Donnie said...

Those are gorgeous pictures! Merry Christmas!

Dean Grey said...

madtexter!

I appreciate that, Corey!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Rain!

The same to you!!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Jason!

They're yours if you can lift them and haul them away by hand! *(~_^)

The Art Institute might not be too happy about it though!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Aries!

Poor old Marshall Field's!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Donnie!

I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Thanks to everyone for looking at my festive photos!

Merry late Christmas! I love that lion: is that outside a museum or a library?

Dean Grey said...

Writer!

A belated Merry Christmas to you too!

There are two lions actually. They sit outside the entrance of the Art Institute on Michigan Avenue....here in Chicago!
