Going back to some older shots that never saw the light of day (well, they are nighshots, but you know what I mean…). These were taken in 2008.

This one is looking up the river from N.Columbus Dr. The building with the clock is Wrigley’s Building, I believe.

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.

    These are fantastic city shots!! I love the B/W!!

  • Thanks Ann, They are quite interesting in colour too, but I find something very… “Art Deco” about the BW versions.

    Night shoots are something that I’ve always found difficult to achieve- you’ve done a smashing job of it, and your subject matter couldn’t be better. Architecturally, Chicago has the most interesting skylines in the world.

  • Thank you very much, I really hope that I may get a chance to go back there one day. Thanks for favouring it! :-)
