So I decided to go downtown and do some street photography with a couple of my photographer friends. I wanted to capture some holiday lights and perhaps the pulse of the city as we inch closer to the Christmas holidays. Unlike my last walk out west where it was like being in a ghost town, Chicago was busy with life and activity which made it suitable for some interesting photography.
I live in the area and have seen many of these buildings numerous times, but I'm still fascinated by the city's architecture, design and overall look.
We didn't see much in terms of "holiday lights" as we had hoped, but still managed to practice some techniques and get some interesting shots as we worked our way through some of Chicago's streets.
People are an important part of any cityscape and there were plenty of interesting characters all around as we walked along.
As the dark of night set in, we worked on traffic, light-trail and slow-shutter photography.
Luckily for us, the Navy Pier was well-lit and since it was cold, not many people were outside so I managed to get some great shots of the Ferris Wheel and the city skyline at night.
Hope you enjoyed checking out these images as much as I had creating them.
Until next time...!
