One City Many Skylines

September 15, 2014  •  Leave a Comment

Blogging is something new to me. How fitting is it that my first post should be something that is also new to me... night photography.  There are many good and bad things that can be said about Chicago. I guess the good or the bad is all subjective, depending on who is talking. One thing I hope we can all agree on is the beautiful skyline that Chicago has to offer. What is more amazing is that in one city the skyline can look so different depending on where you are. Standing at 31st Street Harbor looking at the city from the south gives you a great overview of the entire skyline. On the other hand, the John Hancock Building is prominently displayed when looking at the city from the North at North Ave. Beach. 

What I learned from this night:

1. Having a tripod is a must! 

2. Wind off of the lake make it difficult to capture good night shots. 

3. Black and white night photos of Chicago look amazing!

This is by far my favorite picture from the night. I call it "Life In The Fast Lane" What do you all think?
