Chicago Skyline on a Darkening Day

I have to find better yet take more pictures of the Chicago Skyline during sunset. This one was an old picture I found, hopefully I'll update it soon.
A Magnificent Mile Shop

Crate&Barrel is one of the many well recognized stores on the Magnificent Mile. Be careful shopping there though. I recall a time I went in and there was a table set up with glasses all stacked up in a pyramid. I almost broke them all! Good thing I caught the a base glass in time and avoided a MAJOR embarrassing moment.
The Magnificent Mile at Dusk

A typical Chicago tourist activity is to walk the magnifent mile (Michigan Avenue) and window shop, if you have the cash, even better. All along the mile-run avenue you'll find trendy shops and restaurants.

Chicago Street Performance

Is it a statue? Nope Mr. robot man deserves a tip in his box. During warm weather you may be lucky to come across these street performers especially near the Water Tower.
