I walked past the Flamingo Statue on my way to Mllenium Park, it is as in pictures and is an impressive structure. This not a must visit however unless you are into sculpture or art or it’s on your way to somewhere.

This sculpture impresses with its size (about 4 stories tall), color (bright orange against the gray black buildings) and odd shape. If you are in the area and especially if the weather is nice, it is a great spot to just stop, take a photo,...More

Not easy to walk passed this icon sculpture and not take a couple of circular walks to appreciate all the views. Tension between the steel beams and the graceful curves. I love the orange color as it is such a contrast to the very business-important...More

Downtown / The Loop
Often visitors' first stop in Chicago, The Loop is a
good starting point to sample the city's energy and
flavor. This central business district boasts
Michelin-rated restaurants, upscale hotels, premier
shopping, and enough arresting architecture to keep
your camera busy for hours. You won’t find too many
photo galleries of downtown Chicago without a shot of
