Default Chicago!

I went to Chicago with a friend of mine last weekend to visit a friend and to go sight seeing. It was nice to get away for a while. Hundreds of photos were taken.

Lemme know what you think. A lot of the buildings will look distorted. My wide-angle lens likes to distort things, and I don't feel like correcting all the perspectives in Photoshop.

They don't call it the Windy City for nothing.
