I am In the City, Above the City, Behold the City

Had a lovely weekend in Chicago visiting userinfofeodoric and userinfophoenix_snake. Lots of wandering the city, Portillo’s, pizza and conversation.

I took something like 120 photos on Saturday until my battery died. Lots of great shots – more landscapes than people. Which is, I think, the first time ever in my photographer’s life.

I suspect it was the cold and the clouds. The former reduces subjects, the latter evens high contrast textures.

Too bad I didn’t have my 10-20 but dang if I don’t love my nifty-fifty. Especially in doors.

I’m being really slow about finishing the roll in my Kiev.

Second to lastly: I need to re-organize my Flickr photos.
Lastly: I actually enjoyed driving my car to and from Chicago, even in slick weather on the way down.

Go Bears!

You went all the way to Chicago, took photos without me, and then didn't bring me back any deep dish? Offended. :p

P.S. Awesome shot.
