Kodak Retina I Type 117, 29 July 2011


These are the last of the photos I shot with my Retina earlier this year…coincidentally, today’s group consists of two pairs of shots; this happens sometimes, as I sometimes notice slightly different aspects of the same subject and choose to photograph both (assuming, of course, that such aspects capture my interest).

Photo Information:

Location: Chicago, Illinois; River North
Camera: Kodak Retina I Type 117
Lens: Schneider-Kreuznach 50mm f/3.5 Xenar
Film: Kodak TMax 100 (135)

Photo 1 & 2:

These two photos are of a walkway on the south side of the Trump Tower along the north branch of the Chicago River. While I’m not particularly enamored of the Trump Tower as a whole, this walkway was rather interesting.

Photo 3 & 4:

These two photos are of the Wells Street Bridge on the west side of River North; in the third photo, you can see part of the Merchandise Mart on the left side. Unlike most of the other bridges crossing the Chicago River, the Wells Street Bridge is a dual-level bridge, accommodating pedestrian and automobile traffic on the lower level, and the CTA Brown & Purple Line tracks on the upper level. Like the other bridges crossing the River, this bridge is also an operable one, even with the dual levels.

  1. The curves and lines of the walkway at Trump Tower are so organic and inspirational. I also love the light and shade captured in the photographs.
