Wait, am I allowed to flash back to last night? Of course I am, this is MY BLOG after all!
So HEY GUYS, I’m in Chicago! For the first time ever! I am deliriously sleep deprived from the past 1.5 weeks of mayhem, and there’s no sign of that letting up anytime soon with BlogHouse happening this weekend, followed by me conducting a bunch of interviews once I’m back at work next week. I’m sure I’ll go into hibernation mode once that’s all done, but until then… ENERGIZER BUNNY TIME!
After a trip to the Skydeck and a massive deep dish pizza dinner, I went for a bit of a frolic along the Chicago River last night. I used to be super into (i.e. borderline obsessed with) nighttime photography and long exposures, but my style has since evolved into more candid/street shooting. But strolling along the Riverwalk last night inspired me to do a little impromptu shooting of the skyline. I shot this without a tripod, with my camera propped on a curved railing and my hands holding it semi-steady. BOOM. Not bad, right?
Really though, I had no idea how beautiful and quiet it would be on the Chicago River. It’s a lovely change of pace from chaotic New York. I’m excited to spend all day today exploring this city!
