Hidden in Open View

I honestly never knew this statue existed until the other night.  It is in Grant Park ( Millennium Park) just south of Congress, not 100 feet from Michigan Avenue, but as it sits on top its own little hill and has a screen of mature trees between it and the street so unless you’re just wandering in the park, you’ll never see it.

    beautiful sentinal. Your photos represent chicago completely different from how I always pictured it to be. Or does most of your material come from historic districts?

    hmmmm, well flipping through what i have posted of this city so far I’d have to say they come from every district. Chicago is like any city, it has many different faces. This is from our rather famous lake-front park which has been a part of the city from the very start, when it was actually underwater. So I suppose you can say it was part of the historic district 🙂
    Other photos come from the ghettos, and others from the vast forgotten expanse of industrial wasteland on the south side.

    I’m glad I can give you another perspective on Chicago though, that makes me feel like I am doing what I have always dreamed of doing.
