A beautiful way to end the year in a beautiful Chicago theater. Amazing architecture, design & craftsmanship. Always beautiful at the Cadillac Palace Theater… even with the big chandelier “still under wraps”… and then again after they had “repaired it and wired parts of it for the new electric light. Perhaps we can frighten away the ghost of so many years ago… with a little illumination.”

For some added fun yesterday during the HOT CHOCOLATE RUN,
I set up a little Instagram Challenge for my Dad & Taylor!!!
Ten different categories that we each had to capture somewhere along the way!

Starting here with category #1 : ARCHITECTURE

It might always be The Oriental Theater to me?…
but still a gorgeous over-the-top theater now called The James M. Nederlander Theater.
To some people…

While walking around the Frankfurt City Ring, we ran across this beautiful old church… but I was more intrigued by the surrounding walls, tombstones & columbarium. Many of them dating back a long, LONG time ago!!!

And while most of the buildings are more classical…
you’ve got to appreciate those that aren’t!!!

One of the most beautiful examples of old architecture in Frankfurt is the original Opera House. A beautiful building with great details & craftsmanship. Just one of the many sights along my journey touring around the City Ring.

I even met this adorable couple while taking pictures – and he showed me this great trick for shooting water reflection photos with the camera on my phone.

My final day in Frankfurt, and I got to spend the day exploring. No better way to see the sights, hear the sounds and smell the aromas. Loved seeing all of the great architecture throughout the City.
