I was up for 24 hours when I took this picture. I had just worked a show out in one of Chicago’s suburbs, and we finished about six o’clock in the morning. I knew it’d be a long day going into it, so I threw my photography stuff in the car just in case. The amusing thing with this picture is I actually took this while holding the camera upside down.
There was a big dirt mark in the camera and I couldn’t clean it or move it out of the way. The dirt mark was big and ugly, and it looked like Chicago was under attack from a meatball. So, I held the camera upside down to hide the mark in the water, snapped the picture and went home to bed. Later that day, when I woke up from my “nap,” I took the camera in for a deep cleaning.
To this day, I can’t find the mark “hidden” in the water, and I can’t find any other pictures from that morning to check, either.
