Photo Information:

Camera: Nikon FM-2
Lens: Nikon Nikkor 28mm f/2.8 (Photo 1); 80-200mm f/4 (Photos 2 & 5); 105mm f/2.5 (Photo 3); 50mm f/1.2 (Photo 4)
Film: Kodak TMax 100 (135)

Photos 1 & 2:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Chicago Loop

This is the ComEd (Commonwealth Edison Company) Dearborn Street Substation (completed in 1931 and designed by Holabird & Root), on the east side of Dearborn Street, just across from the Richard J. Daley Center. Pretty much the only holdover from the original Art Deco design is the decorative panel above the now filled-in window opening in the main façade (seen in Photo 2)

Photo 3:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Montrose Harbor

I shot this photo the day after the Great Blizzard back in February…yes, that’s right…the surface of the Lake is frozen here (not surprising, given that the “high” temperature that day was a whopping NINE degrees).

Photo 4:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Streeterville Neighborhood

This is the Lake Shore Bank Building (completed in 1922 and designed by Marshall & Fox; formerly the Lake Shore Trust Building), located at the northeast corner of Michigan & Ohio. As I’ve mentioned before, I once worked for the architectural firm, Lucien Lagrange Architects, whose office was located on the fourth floor of this building; sadly, the firm filed for bankruptcy, and is no longer in business.

Photo 5:
Location: Chicago, Illinois; Rogers Park Neighborhood

This is the central cupola of the Michael Cudahy Science Hall (completed in 1912 and designed by Worthmann & Steinbach) at Loyola University Chicago’s Lake Shore Campus in the Rogers Park Neighborhood.
