Chicago LXXIII by DanielJButler Chicago LXXIII by DanielJButler
Concrete embankment near North Avenue Beach. This was my first visit here in months. There was extensive damage to the bike path, which was just asphalt poured over concrete and much of it literally washed away. I was lifting 2-square-feet sections of it and dropping them onto the ground. They shattered in over a dozen pieces.

Chicago, IL, USA. February 2011

I love the ice and the puddles of water. It looks sad.

I've been there only a couple of days earlier, where everything was still covered with loads of snow. The angle towards the city center is really great from there. :D

I wish I could have seen all the snow here after the blizzard, but it's probably best that I had not. I was actually worried that with all the ice, I could slip, slide & all into the lake.

Yeah, it was really slippery and you could see that not many people had walked directly at the lakefront. I was there about a week after the blizzard when it just started melting. :)

That would likely have been different, as the snow was hardened by then. Lass of a chance to slide. but wow! I'm sure you had fun. =P

Beautiful view. I like the symmetry and the fact that the curved line on the left breaks it
