26 June 2012, Day 21

Scenes from a Tuesday Lunch Hour at Daley Plaza 

One of my favorite things about Daley Plaza is the way that the Picasso is treated, not with reverence but with affection. It is not so much a masterpiece by one of the world's greatest artists as it is a beloved part of the cityscape and a convenient sliding board for city kids. I avoided the urge to edit out the pictures that were out of focus or poorly composed because i think they have their own dynamism and joy that just feels right to me.

It must be at least a week since i posted pictures of people dancing, but thank goodness, the long drought in dance pictures is finally over!
Chicago's unique approach to  physical fitness is to hold live lunchtime concerts and encourage people to dance (like Chicagoans need any encouragement at all in that department).
