Winter Skyline

Trump Tower Chicago Skyline-photography

The snow stopped falling as the clouds moved on to their next destination. Within minutes, the Chicago skyline emerged from the blizzard that previously erased any evidence of it’s existence. A sea of architecture covers the ground as the Trump Tower rises towards the Chicago sky.

Silence

Chicago Winter on the Lake

The water was still as I watch the clouds pass over the lake. I sat on a rock listening to the silence and quickly let me mind wander. I try to find scenes/ places where I can get lost in. I think that’s the beauty of these places. It allows me to forget about everything that is currently happening in my life, and allows me to appreciate where I am at that second. The silent landscapes have a louder effect on me and I can’t wait to find more.

Out of Focus

Chicago-Out-of-Focus

 

There are days where I would just take the train eastbound to Chicago just to walk around, and enjoy the city lights. Sometimes I pull out my camera and take pictures and sometimes I don’t. I enjoy these days the best. Days where I’m not focused on being behind a camera, and can enjoy where I am at that moment. While at the same time these are the days where I experiment the most with my photography. This was one of those days, where being out of focus was the only way to get back into focus. In some ways, blurring my view allows me to see places differently and appreciate a places like the Chicago Post Office by Mies van der Rohe just a little bit more.

Deep Freeze

Frozen-Chicago-Winter-Photography

The temperature drops to mimic the setting sun although it adds a warmth of color to the sky. I begin to walk along Lake Michigan, and it was sort of a surreal moment. The same paths that I’ve taken in July are now unrecognizable, hiding underneath layers of snow and ice. There was something calming about being here. It was as if this moment got frozen in time. Although hearing the sounds of the Lake Shore traffic behind me, it seemed silent. The icicles hanging down as the crackle in the ice creates mini icebergs floating in the water. I enjoy moments like this, moments of the winter lake.
