Chicago Pictures

It was a beautiful day today in downtown Chicago so I took a little walk....I noticed the coolest decorative sculptures along the Roosevelt Street bridge between Clinton and Canal Streets. They look old and yet I've never seen them despite having grown up in this town. I really need to get out more.

An elephant, a tricerotops and a t-rex standing on a globe set on a pedestal of books.

Zooming in a bit.

A bit more and now the shortcomings of my crappy camera phone are really becoming evident.

A compass, or an astrolabe, or whatever this thingy is called.

Similar to the first one with dolphins replacing the dinosaurs and elephant.

Another close up.

The corner of Roosevelt and Canal.
