Sue@WordsVisual gave me a challenge this afternoon – about posting a photo and story for 5 days. I have loads of images and I have loads of stories, so why not.
So this is my first day – and the images I post is from Chicago – it’s was the 4th of July 2012. A warm and beautiful evening.
This story is more about a feeling.
Chicago is my favorite city since many years back and it’s still holds it’s place. Have visit the city 4 times and I wish that it could happen more often.
The image is of the Centennial Fountain on the Chicago River bank. I think this is the images I like most of all the ones I taken through the year. And when I look at it that nice and pleasant feeling that that evening gave me comes back to me and I love it.
I stayed at the Hyatt Regency Hotel and I was told by a taxi driver that the best view for the fireworks was in the end of the road. So I walked to the end of Upper Wacker Drive and the view was fantastic from there against the Navy Pier. I was sharing the view with about 50 people, so it was not crowed.
But the fireworks … not even worth mention – I became so disappointed!!! Seen so many 4th July fireworks on TV and in films …… they have all been amazing, so my expectation was so high.
It was’t an adventures evening …. it was how Chicago and that warm evening embraced me.

Now I have to pass on the challenge to somebody – my first nomination goes to Cee@Cee’s Photography blog – because she and her camera is such a fantastic team. Plus she drives a couple of weekly photo challenges going that keeps many of us busy.
Cee, as Sue said to me – no pressure to pick up the challenge, but I know that you’re always up for a bit fun.
“The challenge is to just “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.
