Every-now-and-then I like to head into the city of Chicago and shoot some images. Sometimes I’ll get out and shoot at sunrise, other times at sunset. I like taking the train around when I do this because I can wander the streets and head home when I’m exhausted, and not have to somehow make it back to my car (once I remember where I parked it). The downside of this, is I carry nearly a ton of gear with me, since I’m not sure if I’m what I’m going to need whenever I end up where I end up. That’s always good for the back, I’m sure.
Anyway, with this particular picture, I’m in the median underneath a traffic light shooting north up Michigan Avenue. I always feel odd doing shots like this because people sit and stare at you while they’re waiting for the traffic light to turn green. One of these days I’m going to wear a gorilla mask while I’m taking pictures just to really give people something to stare at.
