Photo Essay: Labor Day in Downtown Chicago
As you peruse today’s photo essay, I must insist you listen to this excellent song. Just click the YouTube player icon on your screen. Sheesh, can you imagine how strange the preceding sentence would’ve sounded to you fifteen years ago? Or, how much would we even understand about modern day life if we were transported here from the year 1900? I’ll bet my first reaction would be like, “ARGH! Why am I typing on a TV?” But I’d be excited about electric cars.
But I digress, I spent Labor Day hanging around downtown (up to no good). The weather was warm and slightly humid, so the slightest hint of a breeze made powerful use of the cooling properties of evaporation, which tamed my cranky inner beast (for now). I passed Oprah’s crew, who were setting up a closed off Michigan Avenue for the big O-vent. And I wound up in Millennium Park, which is just such. a. joy. So enjoy the photos.
How was your weekend by the way? What’d you all do?
