I woke up at 4am this morning, on purpose to get some shots in the city before all the tourists were out. I left for the subway station at 5, and got down to Millienum park just at it hit 5:43am central time (official sunrise time in Chicago today).
They were SOO worth it. I met a retired guy who was taking pictures. 3 of his photos have been in National Geographic, and I got some good hints Now I just need to practice, and read up more.
Off to get my oil changed and alignment adjusted at 2pm, then hopefully making it up for a Handstand in Milwaukee, WI and then on to Oshkosh. Jeff Dunam is suppose to be performing at 9pm tonight… So I hope I can make that

I studied the map, devised a plan of attack, and then hit the city.
Double Decker Bus tour…
Then I walked down through the city towards the express bus to the Museum of Science and Industry and got a handstand on the way…
The museum was pretty cool. Definitely tailored for younger kids but I enjoyed the “coal mine” tour.
..and my last handstand (camera was balanced on my backpack and I used a timer)…
Tuesday felt pretty lonely for the first time. I know it was just a temporary thing though. I’m posting this on Wednesday and today was much better, just running on no sleep and that’s why this post is so bland! Also, pictures from a tour bus aren’t that great, so I decided to spare you from them. Check out my Day 7 pictures which I like much more
