I’ve lived in Rochester a little over a year, and I’ve become accustomed to its size and pace. Spending a few days in Chicago this past week was a bit of a shock, as it has been a while since I’ve been in a city of that size with that many people.
Fairly quickly I acclimated, however, and I was reminded that I actually like downtown Chicago quite a bit. That stretch of Michigan Avenue from the Chicago River up toward the Hancock Building is really a nice place to visit. People are friendlier than you might give them credit for; food choices are varied and plentiful; the architecture and vistas provide a photographer with plenty to choose from. I especially enjoyed walking along Lake Michigan.
Here is a selection of scenes from my recent trip to Chicago.
