I walked into Willis Sears Tower and was welcomed with heavenly music. It was a great way to start the week.
Putting up the Christmas lights can be tough.
Hand blown and painted glass Christmas ornaments hang at a vendor booth at the annual Christkindlmarket Market in Daley Plaza. They come from Ernstthal, Germany. The vendors have been coming to Chicago for 11 years to sell their ornaments.
This shot was a warm up shot of trying to frame one of the vendors through the opening of ornaments. I was distracted by a sign that she held up asking for $2 for taking pictures. I thought it was really funny and struck an conversation with them. I was amazed at their passion to sell their goods overseas every year. I hope the next time I take a picture, there won’t be much to photograph.
I unfortunately misplaced his card. If the Vendors of these beautiful ornaments are reading this, email me, and I’ll send you a photo!
Since 1996, the Christkindlmarket is an annual market set up in Daley Plaza in Chicago. It features many different vendors from all around the Chicagoland area greeting visitors in the below freezing weather. It has become a popular market for Chicagoans to visit each year.
