    Here are some photos I took of snow covered Chicago during my trip this month. All photos as title says were taken with the Olympus E-M1 and the awesome 12-40mm F2.8 lens. Photos were taken through the small window slit of the Hilton 19th floor, on top of the Willis (Sears) Tower and John Hancock Observatory and few others.

    You should have gotten out on the ground/streets and taken some pictures then. Edit: I see that you were out near the planetarium and Shedd Aquarium.

    I hope that you enjoyed your trip and that you will return again.

    I will for sure come back to Chicago. I am originally from Chicagoland area. I did go 11.5 years of college in Chicago, yes, way too much. Now I reside in Madison.

    Fantastic series, the em-1/12-40 combo sure is excellent.

    I'm assuming your 11.5 years wasn't all undergrad (I have a couple advanced degrees, and you have me beat by a couple years). Though if it was, that'd be damn impressive!

    My friends and I keep plotting to re-enroll at U of I Urbana-Champaign as freshman.

    Great images, btw - too bad the fog was so thick when you were by the Adler. In my opinion, that's one of the best spots in the city to shoot the skyline.

    Man I miss that place... I never seem to have a camera on me whenever I go down to visit. I really need to the next time - there's a lot of great photos waiting to be taken there. I'm biased, of course, but that's gotta be one of the most beautiful campuses of all time.

    My wife has been invited to speak at a conference for the last few years in early June. It happens to be around our anniversary, we met while in Urbana, so we go. This past year we took our cameras and revisited Allerton Park. Spring is the perfect time to be touring a garden. We happened to see a young couple with a toddler, a guitar AND a m4/3s camera!
