Code4Lib 2013 was in Chicago, and I accompanied Arty for a few days of Chicago and saying hi to friends. Also, seeing Chicago while it was very cold.

"Mountain Brook" by Albert Bierstadt
by De Scott Evans.
A design by Frank Koralewsky. Ornamental doesn't come close.

also known as "The Wedding Couple" by Arnold Rönnebeck

Three chibis in a Japanese lantern. So cute! O_O
