The subway is a fascinating place to me. You can see so many different types of people. And there can be quite a few different forms of entertainment, from violin players to tap dancers to one man bands. Some people who commute on the subway everyday might not find it as interesting. I guess because where I live we don’t have a subway it seems more interesting than it might actually be.
It was so overcast and cloudy. This does actually make for some great color and contrast as long as you don’t look towards the sky too much.
Getting around Chicago is pretty easy. We always stay in a hotel near the subway. Get a one day pass for 5$ and you are off and running. I’ve jumped on the bus there a couple of times, but I like the subway better I think.
There’s just something about Chicago pizza. Everytime we go there one meal must consist of Chicago Pizza. We’ve tried several and this place was no exception to the excellentness status of Chicago pizza! :)
I had a different picture up earlier today, but the more I looked at it the more I didn’t like it. So I pulled this one out. From Chicago back in September near the Navy Pier.
Continuing shots of people this week. I’m pretty sure this guy was sleeping. He’s on a bench just outside the Navy Pier in Chicago. I titled it Napoleon sleeps because he reminded me of the guy from Napoleon Dynamite, which is a very funny movie. The other great thing about it is it’s not your typical Hollywood big budget junk. Plus it’s a clean movie. I think the worst word in the movie is maybe “Idiot.” And to hear Napoleon say it is quite funny.
Time for some shots of people. This guy was along the edge of Lake Michigan during my trip to Chicago in September.
Pulling out another shot from my trip to Chicago. This is of an art object called Cloud Gate. It is a giant bean shaped object made from highly polished steel plates. You can’t see the seams at all where the plates meet except for when you go underneath where they left the seams on purpose. It was pretty neat. Brandon has a cool shot of it here. There was a orchestra playing in front of it entertaining what looked like a high brow dinner party.
Another shot from Chicago along Lake Michigan. This area is right next to the Adler Planetarium. I shot some new stuff the other day, but out of 50 or so shots I only liked one which I posted yesturday.
