Canon AE-1P, 16 November 2011


As with my FM-2 photos, I shot these photos last winter, so don’t start thinking it’s snowing in Chicago just yet (though we did get a light dusting of lake-effect snow last week).

Photo Information:

Location: Chicago, Illinois; Chicago Loop

Photos 1 & 2:
This magnificent building is the Chicago Athletic Association Building (completed in 1893 and designed by Henry Ives Cobb), located on south Michigan Avenue. The style of the building is Venetian Gothic – there are a number of similarities between this building and the much older Ca’d’Oro in Venice.

Photos 3, 4, & 5

I shot these photos from Wolf Point on the north branch of the Chicago River facing south towards the Loop; Photo 3 is the view from the east side of the River, while Photos 4 & 5 are from the west side. You can also see a CTA Green Line train crossing the River on the Lake Street Bridge in Photo 5…I had to wait for several minutes to get this shot, both to meter the scene and then for a train to cross the bridge – which is ever so much harder when it’s only 25 degrees out (good thing the cold doesn’t bother me nearly as much as heat does).
