Thanks Wei, suprising to have this much spring action in the middle of the fall. Cheers, Volkan

wow, this is a nice view of Chicago! I should probably know about this project, but I guess I haven't been keeping up with my profession outside of Boston...Have they turned the whole former air field into a park? Or is it temporary treatment? Do you know of anywhere it's written up? Seems like you head out here a lot! Just like with my photos from Central MA 10-28 and the ones this week-end, things sure can change a lot in 6 weeks!

It appears that conversion is permanent. I think it was a great prestige point which was making Chicago really space age city. I come here frequently to find the stars :) Here is more info for you Kamaly. Cheers, Volkan

Great picture, but it disgusts me. There used to be a small airport there. Long live Meigs Field!

Hi Seekan, thank you. I feel the same way. I hope someday Meigs Filed will rise again :) Best wishes, Volkan
