On the Saturday afternoon of my trip to BlogHer in Chicago, I had to get out and use my camera, much like the first time I was there in 2009.
There were many brides out that day, in Millennium Park and the weather was amazing, only 64 degrees. That’s unheard of in summer where I come from!
So I walked on over to “the bean” and my friend Colleen met me there. It was great to walk around with her and chat while we took photos.
This first two photos were actually taken out the window of the McCormick Center (top one with camera, bottom one with phone and edited in Instagram), where the conference was held, and the second one was taken out of my hotel room but everything else was taken during my short photo walk…
These were all taken with my new 35mm lens. Which I pretty much love.
I am truly amazed at all the different types of architecture in Chicago. The way the buildings are backdrops for each other is so interesting to me and seems different in a way, than say New York City, for some reason. Perhaps it is the constant contrast of old and new, all mixed together.
I hope the next time I visit I can make it farther than just the Sheraton and the park because I know there is so MUCH more to see (and take photographs of!)
Have you been to Chicago?
