Yes, I’m back to this camera again…although I do intend to restart posting select digital photos, as well – I’ve been neglecting them for far too long.

Photo Information:

Camera: Zeca Bettax
Lens: Schneider-Kreuznach 105mm f/4.5 Radionar
Film: Ilford HP5+ EI3200 (120)

Photo 1:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Chicago Loop

The subject of this photo is the lobby of the Inland Steel Building (completed in 1958 and designed by Skidmore, Owings, & Merrill (SOM)) – at night!

Photo 2:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Chicago Loop

This is the entry to One North LaSalle (completed in 1930 and designed by Vitzthum & Burns) in the Financial District along LaSalle Street in the Loop. The Art Deco details aren’t easily seen this late at night, but the effect of the streetlamps on the façade was rather interesting.

Photo 3:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; River North

This is the view from Wacker & Lake, facing northeast towards the south end of the Mag Mile at the Michigan Avenue Bridge. The pair of buildings that dominate this location are, of course, the Wrigley Building (left; completed in 1924 and designed by Graham, Anderson, Probst, & White) and the Tribune Tower (right; completed in 1925 and designed by Howells & Hood) – I challenge you to find a better pair of historic buildings elsewhere!
