It's the world-famous HI Guy! I actually know him from seeing him around town so often. Check out his website here: http://runnershigh.us/

He's run like 300 marathons!

Is this the only thing the guy could say? "Hi guy!" A Chicago institution I'm sure.

The HI Guy has gotten a bike? Used to see him all the time walking up and down Michigan Ave. Good to see he's more mobile and can say hi to more of the city now

I like the impactual human interest in the form of this "Hi Guy". He adds a questionable aspect to the image and I find myself wondering, what's this all about. For near mid day sun the handling of light is very good.

Is it really possible Valerie has her back to this guy and didn't take a photo of this wonderful scene?

Hilarious. I have a few shots of him sitting around as well. I really like the color on this shot...well processed.

His voice reminded me of Professor Frink when he shouted, "Hi, hi, hieeey!"


It's amazing that he's run that many marathons. Dang.
