Here in Sweden are we not allowed by law to take photos of people without their permission, so it’s very difficult to catch people unaware and I have full respect. So I’m being a bit naughty at times during my travelling, but I’m never intrusive with my camera.
Chicago – my favorite city of so many fantastic ones that I have visit and enjoyed through my years abroad and travelling.
A MEGA hot first week of July 2012 – 8 days of pure comfort and delight, except outdoors – it was temperatures around +28c already 9am. Chicago are always a very hot city in more than one way – but this week is was boiling hot and the windy city didn’t even give a gust of wind for 7 days.
And I was able to catch people in fountain being unware. Grown ups became kids again enjoying the fountain.
People in the inner city was all gathering around the marvoulas Crown Fontain in the Millenium Park to get some relief. Me too!!!! Was down there every morning after breakfast and before I headed back to my hotel. My feet LOVES it – and the fine mist from the fountain was the most wonderful and needed relief from the blastering sun and the heat. It’s also provide a place of joy and playfulness.
Designed by Catalan artist Jaume Plensa and executed by Krueck and Sexton Architects, it opened in July 2004. To a cost of $17 million and the fountain towers are 50 feet (15.2 m) tall.
Fun and relief for all ages – 24/7 in the middle of Chicago, plus that it’s amazing just to look at. Crown Fountain really discover the youth in everyone around it.
Have made my wish; I want to come back to Chicago … so soon possible.
