Favorite Photos Week: The Bean in the fog

The Bean

What a beautiful spring weekend my son and I had been spending in Chicago — sunny but not too warm. We did all the touristy stuff, from visiting the museums to looking at the city from the top of the John Hancock building to eating deep-dish pizza and drinking Old Style beer. (My son skipped the beer, having just turned 13.) We slept in an ornate grand hotel.

We checked out of our hotel after breakfast, backpacks carrying all of our gear, and emerged onto streets surprisingly sparse of people. Fog had fallen, cloaking the skyscraper tops. In Millennium Park we came upon Cloud Gate, the giant chrome bean. It reflected the fog as a blank canvas, waiting for the city to reemerge.

    Did I miss any news about a new job?

      I mentioned that I’d landed a job back in this post: http://blog.jimgrey.net/2015/07/24/the-power-of-saying-no-to-yourself/

      But I didn’t tell much about it. I landed a Director of Quality Assurance job at a company in town that has a software development team. I started yesterday. Glad to be back to work.
