On Virgina roads

We've been driving around the middle of Virginia, along smaller roads. It's really nice. The area is also between winter and spring, good time for Easter no?

We're in Lynchburg Va. Driving around I notice a lot of plastic bags stuck in trees. Is this our future, where plastic bags are going to be stuck to all trees?


The bean (Cloud Gate) is really cool. Its one of those things where pictures don't do it justice. It's a magical thing. It feels like a living photoshop filter.
If ever in Chicago go there.

Back in Chicago on our way to Virginia for a Family wedding. Compared to Seattle, it's still in the grips of winter, there are piles of snow every where, and of course the town is preparing itself for St Patrick's day:
yes the water is green. I just don't really get it, this is something that got more serious after we left.

After this we went to the art institute to check out the Edward Hopper exhibit. It was really great. The show was paired with Winslow Homer an artist from the turn of the 20th century. For some reason there was more of a crowd for Homer than for Hopper, I'd say it's typical.

This is the crowd around these small pictures. We couldn't see squat of ole Homer. Luckily, the Hopper exhibit was more deserted, and better art.
