Love faces. Have always done so, will always continue doing so. So when in Chicago a while ago, portraits and peoples expressions naturally found their way into my camera.
All of these pics taken in July of 2017.
In a few weeks I’ll be back again. Last time it was for Thanksgiving and the November wind was less forgiving.
This time it’ll be summer and we’ll be approximately 12 Swedish Street photographers, staying for a long weekend. Me, I’ll first visit my family in Indy (Indianapolis). Seeing them again is a must, but after that I’ll indulge in all of the more or less dramatic Chicago scenes. See you there?
Such a fantastic place, the Loop area in Chicago and its elevated trains. At it, under it, up towards it or down from the trains there are natural set “stages” all over. The lighting is magic and the people are intriguing.
Millennium Park, Chicago, end of November 2015.
Silly or not, I’m glad that someone else like to share my pics. Sometimes (on Instagram) I add the hashtag #Shootoff and some of those pics get shared. These are the latest nine pics that got shared by Shootoff. And my normal 20-40 likes/pic add upp to a little more. Nice.
Can you guess which of these nine that got the highest acclaim?
Yup, thats the one. “Thru it all”, botton middle…
Walked about in Chicago a bit, mostly looking forward and down (from the Loop), but occasionally I also looked up as the Windy city has many dimensions of interest and one is “high”.
There was this hotel, that had put pillows and cushions in the windows and in one of them…
Yes. Me too. I also think that this is quite an ordinary pic.
But something about the lines in the bridge, the colors and the backdrop fascinates me. Even if I really don’t know why.
I’ve now added a page with some of my pics from Chicago last November. Visited my family in Indianapolis for Thanksgiving and took some time to drive and meet a friend of mine there. Click here for the gallery.
