Magnificent Shopping



 
Posted by Picasa


One of the best shopping areas in the country is located on Michigan Avenue in Chicago and is known as the Magnificent Mile. There are so many stores here that it is easy to get overwhelmed. The guy in the last picture apparently had been waiting so long for his wife to come back that a bird built a nest in his hair! He was sitting outside of the Lego store.

It is fun to see your own city through someone else's camera lens. The night scene is very pretty and I had completely forgotten about all the LEGO statues by the LEGO store. Happy New Year!

Happy New Year!

Hi Lois. I've been catching up on your Chicago trip. I recognized the sculpture and the glass ledge from other blogs. I don't know if I could step out there. Anyway, thanks for sharing your trip with us.

Here's wishing you a very Happy New Year!

Le Centre Pompidou in Paris reminds «Louis» of a Lego structure on bad drugs.
