Chicago – Look Up

January darkness and cold has wrapped up Seattle and suffocated my photography breath. Well, sort of.

It is hard to go out and shoot. Rain. Cold. Darkness, an obvious foe of our hobby.

I’m still shooting. But I’m also revisiting some older shoots. I wanted to put some more from our December trip to Chicago and picked the following shots:

Kimpton Gray, Chicago

We’ve stayed at several Kimptons. Over Christmas we had the good fortune to stay at the Kimpton Gray in Chicago.

The service was excellent. They steered us to The Second City and several great restaurants.

Here’s some shots from The Kimpton Gray:

Chicago

Spent Christmas week in Chicago. Crazy? We booked the trip in early fall. What do we care if it’s cold? We’ll eat. Museums. Those are inside. Right?

Then the Thanksgiving cold snap blew through and scared the bejabbers out of us. But we need not worry! Sixty degrees! Yes. Sixty!

Here’s some shots:

I’ll post more later. I took 300 – 400 shoots. Kept probably 200. Tough to cull down for reasonable sized posts.

Week 28 | December 21 – 27, 2019

Christmas week. Traveling. Chicago. A freak 60 degrees. Record breaking weather for the Windy City.

Several hundred photos are locked away in my x100f or on a roll of Silberra 400. I’ll sort, edit and post over the next few weeks. For now, a few from the iPhone.

It’s nice having an iPhone for quick shots.
