Hi Megan, yes we made it back!  I actually ended up riding Jaime's bike back and even that seemed easier.  I will post some pictures sometime this week.  I actually liked the way John's pictures turned out, especially of the garden.  ~Murray :)

John, I think the blur might have been due to the settings in the camera. Since only the fringe is out of focus evenly, the camera might be set at miniature effect mode.

I was wondering about the blur and thought it couls have been water on the lens, or something similar - great day, despite the weather, loved being asked to leave the vicinity of the Metropolitan Correctional Center ...

A few more, blur possibly caused by wet camera.

Thanks for organizing the ride, John! Like a bunch of us, I've never been to Jackson Park and it was lovely even though the rain.
