Chicagoland

I visited Chicago for a night, and it was mostly a social visit with my cousin, but I did get a bit of photography in. I decided to call this post Chicagoland instead of Chicago just so I could get the picture of Gary, Indiana in without making another post.

I had a nice walk along the Chicago River. The Trump building is most prominent.

The lines of the L train tracks on 63rd Street on the South Side of Chicago intrigued me.

I loved the Keep Out sign by this Norfolk Southern train in Gary, Indiana.

Take Me to the Other Side (Of Chicago)

I’m not going to get into the technical definitions of the North Side vs the South Side of Chicago. All I know is that the last time I went to Chicago I stayed in the northern section of downtown, and this time, I was a few miles south of the major tourist attractions. (You can see my photos from my previous visit here)

After a long few days on my feet, I decided to soldier on and walk a few miles up the shore of Lake Michigan, but I didn’t make it very far without getting tired. That’s when I looked up and saw how beautiful the clouds were by the marina. After that, I slowly walked back to my hotel, and discovered the walking bridge over Lake Shore Drive. Plus, as luck would have it, my view from my hotel room was pointing south, which I enjoyed, as the refineries off in the distance always fascinate me. All in all, I enjoyed how my location forced me to look at downtown Chicago in a different way.

Clear Chicago Night

I went to Chicago, Illinois for work and my luggage, with my tripod in it, didn’t make it.  Talk about a crash course in hand held low light photography!  Due to the lack of a tripod, I figured out that pressing the camera against the glass could keep it steady with no glare.  The first photo was a 2 or 3 second exposure, so I was very happy with how clear it came out.

The night photo was taken on my 2nd trip of the day to the top of the John Hancock Center, which was suggested to me by a few locals.  (They actually have a pass good for one trip during the day and one trip at night, which is only a few bucks more  than going up once.)

My advice?  If you have an option to go up in different skyscrapers in a city, never pick the one that looks coolest from the outside…if I had gone in the Willis Tower (formerly the Sears Tower), how would I have gotten a cool photo of it?  Besides, I took a stroll around Lake Michigan and took a photo of the Hancock Building from there, seen below.
