A shooting fountain

Posted by Picasa

This is the fountain at McCormick Center, which is where the Chicago Auto Show is always held. It is really stunning in real life!

The Display...

I looked at this a long time. I still couldn't figure out how the sign pertains to much. This was a display of water for Lexus but it wasn't anything you were going to lean against..all water is contained inside and it was pretty heavy. Interesting sign. I guess I really wanted to see someone one "on" the display so they could be told to get "OFF" :)

I was afraid to ask how much these babies were....but they sure looked bright! They were behind a roped area and no one could touch them. I think it would've been fun to sit in one of them.

It's a bird, it's a plane, it's a..


.....Ram Dodge truck (truck of the year!)--suspended upside down at the Chicago Auto Show....One of the few things that I felt was a photo opp. Usually, one can be WOWED by some of the proto-type cars they have been working on. There weren't that many -or they didn't impress me! The Mitsubishi has an electric car...very tiny...that is coming out here next year. I was unclear as to whether it was already being sold overseas.
But all in all, I did enjoy the Auto show.

Pretty but....

Yes, it is snowing and I LIKE the snow....but I am to the point that it is pretty to look at as long as you don't have to shovel it and THIS is in desperate need of shoveling....and it is heavy and wet...."Heart attack" snow is what we call it.

Crystal clear

It is still winter here. Although we haven't been overwhelmed with snow it has been consistent. This is an early morning shot of the frozen snow on the trees.
