One of the downsides to taking a zillion photos while traveling is that you rarely find the time after your trip concludes to share them with the world in a comprehensive manner. I usually get to the point where I organize them and back them up, and then I think about how I’d like to share them online, and then I go back to work and get sucked back into my routine (which this year included a role change at my job), and before you know it, months have passed and you realize you never shared one thing. And a day comes where you find a wee bit of time, and you admit guilt on your public forum of choice (mea culpa, WordPress), and you prepare your images…and here we are! Finally giving this amazing building its due.

Although we learned about the building through the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust on our trip to Chicago late last summer, many others had a hand in making it spectacular inside. Here are some shots for your enjoyment.
