photoblog image Chicago Spring

Chicago Spring

Some pictures of spring around the University of Chicago, here in Hyde Park where I live on Chicago's south side. I love our campus and particularly in the spring time. This was taken last month outside Harper Memorial Library.

I am off today to Finland for the next week for a conference and some sightseeing (and so I am not sure how good my responses will be during that time) and then I will be in London for all of June. So bon voyage!

I lived in Chicago for a year, Charles, but have no memories of spring. That was back when I was in another world, I think! Enjoy your week in Finland. Now THAT place I do remember! WOW. I hope they give you time to go out and explore.

Just gorgeous!
Chicago in spring, lovelysmile
very nice photo Charles, love the back ground the way it keeps the hole picture with a wrm feel and of course the flowers as well
Magnolia and old stone - nice combination, Charles. Enjoy your Finland trip - you shouldn't have any problems with access, it's pretty well universal there.
Charles, this is a wonderful shot; the delicate pink of the blossoms against the building and sky are beautiful.
