single frame: Looking up in Chicago

Looking up in Chicago

Looking up in Chicago
Pentax K10D
28mm f/2.8 SMC Pentax-M

Margaret and I took a much-needed break and drove up to Chicago for the weekend. We rented a very nice hotel room in the theater district, saw Les Misérables, and drank cocktails all day.

This gray, rainy weekend we got caught in a downpour. Though we wore raincoats, our jeans were soaked. So we walked into Old Navy and bought dry clothes. And then we got caught in another downpour and our new jeans were soaked, too.

Even though my Pentax K10D is water sealed, I was glad I kept it under my raincoat. That was a lot of rain.
