Jill Hollingsworth was in town from Colorado to run in the Chicago marathon. She made it to mile 16 before the race was cancelled due to the heat. She took a few pictures on her visit to the city. Thanks Jill.
Remi Mommsen is a high energy physicist doing research at CERN, SLAC and Fermi Lab. Here I thought I "high energy" physicist was one who just never tired, but according to his website his work is "focused on experimental hints of flaws in the very successful standard model and understanding of the roll of mass." He also produced some great photographs you can see below. You can view his entire collection at: http://gallery.mac.com/remi_dona#100036&view=grid&bgcolor=black&sel=24
Kennon Brown works for the Department of Cultural Affairs and is one of many people who played such a critical role in making the event go off without a hitch. Thank you.

Mark Dawson was the first person to send photos to me. Mark's images do a beautiful job placing the bridge in the context of the surrounding architecture.
