Spring Blooms in Chicago Steel

This photo was taken in early spring. Sometimes, in Chicago, this is the only kind of flower you get in March.

Sometimes, when steel is all you got, steel flowers is all you get in Chicago in March.

This is one of those photos that I couldn’t let go of. I hemmed and hawed… I just wasn’t sure. I think part of it is that I’m growing more comfortable in the idea of letting go of rigid crop ratios. If it doesn’t fit the image, change it!

Don’t get me wrong… some day, I’ll crop a lot less. Who knows, that some day might be soon. Until then, I’ll give you what I can with what I got. 🙂

Blue Hour The Grant Luxury Condos

These high-rise homes really are striking. They create great book ends to the skyline.  But when you walk over the bridge from the museum campus past the Metra Electric Line, into the south Loop, you see these high rises to your left (south). They get great light and the buildings are lit up dramatically. The glass and structure is curved at times too.

The Metra Electric line runs in front of the building (down the left side of the frame, here).

Blue hour does a great job in the city of Chicago. It’s a great contrast with the yellow lighting of the street.

I hope you enjoy!
