Meow??

Not too far down Michigan Avenue from Millenium Park is the Art Institute, with the somber, regal lions guarding the entrance. I don't own a cat, and don't know anyone who does, so this photo of one of the Institute's guardians will serve as my entry for "Feline Friend".

  3. Fabulous composition!! You have a great eye.

    When we were downtown not too long ago my husband asked me if I wanted to photograph the lions and I decided I'd wait. I guess I'll cross them off my list as no shot will even compare to this one!!

  6. Nice creative twist to the theme, and very regal looking too.

  7. Is that green the original color or turned through aging? The texture on the feline is ready to be touched.

  8. I own a cat! She's just as regal, but not quite as ferocious.

    I've always loved those cats standing guard over the art.

  9. Another great perspective you used, a new look on an iconic Chicago landmark.
