What a wonderful town! I spent almost two days in Chicago and enjoyed every minute. I spent a lot of time on the shores of Lake Michigan photographing the city and the lakefront. I also got to see the Cubs play the San Francisco Giants at Wrigley Field.

No Idea, I just liked the clock tower
While driving on Lake Shore Drive, I spotted another totem. I drove down to the lakeshore to find it. I ended up in an area containing a marina and a park with beach. There is only one entrance to this area, and while there a gas leak developed and no one was allowed in or out. The Chicago police, fire department, telephone company and the gas company were there to fix it. The following photos were taken while I was trapped there.

I had to get a closer look

This is as close as they would allow me

The parties in conference
Shortly after the conference we were allowed to leave. I was there about 3 hours, and was beginning to wonder, if I'd miss the game. All of the police and fire fighters were professional and friendly. I never did get to photograph the totem. One officer told me it's not accessible by automobile.

Music is "Chicago"
