Recorded on the shores of Lake Michigan while on the morning run through Grant Park in Chicago.



Buckingham Fountain, Chicago

I was standing at the Buckingham Fountain when I stopped to record this morning.

The view around me - part 1 - Turning to the right of the fountain

part 2 - Turing back and then to the left of the fountain

part 3 - Turning directly to the east to face the rising sun would not have produced a picture worthy of sharing so I resumed running and found this line of trees worthy of stopping for

My favorite place is 'the bean' or officially called 'Cloud Gate'


Each time I come to SOBCon, I try to make a visit to cloud gate. It helps me focus and put things into perspective. We are so small in this big world.

What is SOBCon and why do I go? The answers can be found in this post that was a collaboration with my good friend Phil Gerbyshak   http://www.sobevent.com/what-makes-shersteve-come-back-to-sobcon-over-and-over/
