I was digging through some client catalogs the other day and came across my private album from the Chicago trip. We were not there long – arrived 6:30 p.m. Saturday evening through 1:30 p.m. Sunday afternoon. Cyn & I managed a wonderful dinner at The Tavern at the Park just off the waterfront and a walk about in Millenium Park. There was a fantastic violinist giving a concert to a very packed venue. We stayed at the Congress Plaza Hotel right on Michigan Avenue. The room was a very nice king suite with a fantastic waterfront and lake view.
The next morning we were very anxious to get up and get back out there. We grabbed coffee and set a course for Gateway Park, but there was just so much to see and photograph. Before long, we turned around and headed back to the hotel to collect our things and make our way to Union Station. We did a quick family photo shoot in front of Union Station before boarding the train back to St. Paul. It was an incredible trip all around. I am certain we will return to Chicago for an extended photography outing at some point in the not-so-distant future.
The story and photos from the train excursion aboard the Cedar Rapids will soon be published via DanCyn Photography. Here are my photos from our somewhat brief 18 hour layover in Chicago.
