great stuff! Love the angles, the bustling activity, the buildings, and infrastructure. Check out all the different lightpoles they have! Looks like you are a true explorer, given some of the positions you took those pictures from :)

Great photos Mr. D. I think those are some of the best street scenes that I have ever seen of Chicago. I wonder if they will ever release that flying car?

Thanks! I believe the FAA is slated to approve transit methods for personal flying vehicles in 2009, but don't quote me on that. I was in Chicago during a heat wave. On one day the city tied with a record of 96 for the high. Mix that in with the city being next to a lake and it makes for an extremely miserable day! Lots of ice cream and water was consumed in the duration of my visit, LOL! There were a lot of people out and about though, especially on bicycles. It's hard to capture just how many people were on the streets and riding bikes, but it was exciting to see so much outdoor activity!

Nice photos.  815 photos, how big is your memory card?

I have several 128MB sticks (memory stick) but I had to offload several times to my laptop. Ended up being around 1.7GB worth of photos I think.

Actually that is the KHR-3 HUBO from the Korea Advanced Institute of Science & Technology. Hubo has 41 joints, Asimo has 26 and is the first robot that can walk fluidly and move each finger individually. It was definately amazing to see!

Wow those pics of the beach on Lake Michigan look like they're straight out of San Diego or Miami. Very cool, they get any waves on the lake?

Usually only during the winter. Even then not really enough for water sports, although you really, really don't want to be in Lake Michigan in January anyway. :D
