Try out that new camera and/or tripod you got for Christmas!
Let's try doing some panoramas of the bean! Nothing like the bean in its high resolution glory.
If the weather cooperates we can stroll down to the lakefront through Grant Park, and if it doesn't we can try and sneak our tripods into the Cultural Center. (Sometimes they're OK with tripods and sometimes they're not, depends on the guards working.) There are a bunch of things to try panoramas of in that area.
