Whirlpool-Britannica and survival!

Whirlpool-Britannica two brands that have been in Chicago for a long time.

I found this after the Chicago Auto Show on 2-13-2014. OK, it was actually 2-14-2014 by the time I took the image. It was about 12:30 in the morning. There was tons of snow all over the city. I had to go down some stairs to find a little stretch of the River Walk . At this point of the river it isn’t much of a walk, more like a Lower Wacker Drive patio. The stairs had obviously NEVER been shoveled during the whole winter. Going down these stairs was more like sliding down these stairs. With an expensive camera, tripod and lens. The railing was my best friend, especially on my way back up!

Why did I do this?

Because I liked the light and I knew there was more of it where I was going.

Not every spot of the skyline is interesting. But I do enjoy where warm and cool colors mix like they do here with the Maytag and Britannica symbols mix.  I planned for brackets and doing HDR processing. But there is something about this single exposure I liked. The edges in the background buildings seem to have more life, I think. Anyhow, I’m not showing you those pictures.  Just the one I liked.

If you like it, at least you didn’t have to go down and up an icy flight of cement stairs to see it. 🙂
