Hi, this is Benni and I will be your host this week. I just returned from a visit to my brother in Chicago and was inspired while there. But I am mostly a country mouse, not a city mouse, and tend to enjoy smaller towns and the countryside as well.
So the theme for this week is a mix-or-match theme: 3 shots in any combination of a city, town or the countryside. All 3 can be of the city, or 2 of one and one of another and so forth.
I hope you have fun taking or finding pictures. Congratulations to Pat on her lovely green Honesty plants which serve as this week's banner.

Formally named "Cloud Gate", this stainless steel structure is universally known in Chicago as "The Bean".
North of Chicago, on Lake Michigan, sit these summer houses in the village of Holland.
