Chicago IS an awesome city, Char!



I'm glad you're back!



That's quite a compliment, Bob!


Thanks to the three of you for stopping by!

This is a great idea. Focus on a color theme and photograph it. I may have to steal this idea from you and do a blog post of my own. "My day in burnt orange" (or whatever other color I predominantly see that day).

I enjoy people who have a keen eye for the obvious that most of us take for granted.

Love the "color theme" theme for the Wordless Wednesday, Dean.

Mike said...

I love the first picture of that tall building. Oh how I want to go to Chicago one day soon...

Bill said...

"It's not easy being blue," sang Kermit. He normally said "green," but he was a little depressed today. :o(

I love the House of Blues sign! What a beautiful shade.

Love today's monochromatic theme! :)

Wonderful pictures. I like your "blues" theme. I've only ever been to the House of Blues once, for a concert. Seeing these pictures makes me realize that there's still a lot of Chicago that I have yet to experience.

Dean Grey said...





LOL, I was thinking about doing just that, Corey! A different series based on a single color!



Green is my favorite color but I'm glad blue is yours!



I checked out the link!






The tallest building (in the first pic) is the stunning Trump Tower!

What are you waiting for? Chicago would love to have you! September and October are great months to visit!



How could I not include the House of Blues sign in a post about all things blue!








Neurotic Workaholic!

Get out there and explore this great city of ours!


Everyone's feedback is greatly appreciated!

Those are the best 'blues' to have, love the creativity of each one. Especially liked the one which indicated the way to O'Hare Airport, been there when I flew to visit some friends who used to live in Wheaton. Oh yeah, and I stayed in the Hilton Hotel for a few days, conference. Fun driving around for sure, gotta know your exits.

This is so great - at this point we'd had 3 straight gray days... this is so beautiful! I love blues but would never have thought of pulling this together!

Mac Callister said...

wonderful the first one.

have a great weekend!

These blues dont give me the blues :)

Love the berry original and your anti-rust plans!

Dean Grey said...


The neat thing about the Blue Line terminal is that the tiles are in shades of blue!



I'm a fan of gray days!



I'm partial to the first one too! It actually inspired the rest of the "blue theme"!



I'm glad to hear that!


Thanks to the four of you for chiming in here!

Blue's my favorite color and I love your pictures of Chicago. Thanks for sharing your creativity with your audience. PS -- I'm slowly catching up to your 2011 posts. I recently discovered your blog through Naturgesetz and I decided to read your blog from the beginning. It's great stuff!

Dean Grey said...


I'm honored that you're reading my blog from the very beginning!

That makes me feel special!

Reminds me of my only weekend in Chicago - June 1998, I think. Due to extremetly cheap weekend air fare I arrived late on a Saturday morming for a conference that did not start till Monday. I estimate that I walked around 8 miles that weekend, exploring the city on such a beautiful, comfortable weekend. I had no idea that Chicago was so walkable.

Dean Grey said...


Downtown Chicago (the Loop) is awesome to walk around in!
