As I said earlier, I've been in Chicago a lot lately. Last week I found these light bulb people hanging out. For some reason, the lights on the other side of hte street were lit, but not on this side. I may have gotten a little carried away with turning the lightbulbs on in post though.....

Aparently in Chicago they bury their dead along busy bus routes and use brightly colored lights instead of headstones. :-)

A couple of years ago, they had painted cows all over the place. Must be something in the same relm. I hope it warms up again so i can take the train down and spend a day shooting the city.

Nice shots of the light heads. haha

Did you get a chance to go over and get shots at millinuim park?

No, when I'm in town working it's usually 12-16 hour days. That doesn't leave much time to wander too far work (especially with the hotel being on the same block). I think in the last month the farthest I've made it from the office was 4 blocks.

Airefare is pretty cheap right now though. I might make a pleasure visit in the spring if the rates stay low.

That's understandable. If you're on Michcigan ave, you're not to far from the park... Try to make it down there next time you're here. You'll love it.

And you're only a 6hr drive from here. If rates go up, just drive. I hope to make a trip up there in the spring to see my buddy that us to live here.
