Interlude 2: A Chicago Photo Journal

It was a day of rare beauty the Saturday I attended my first screenings at the Chicago Film Festival, October 8.  The films I wanted to see were hours apart, which provided enough time to walk, and enjoy the city around me...Navy Pier, Illinois Avenue, and the River East Art Center.

I had my camera.

The entrance to Navy Pier.  Hundreds of tourists, and natives enjoying an unseasonably warm October day. Maybe even a few movie lovers, in between Festival Screenings!

Mark and I had seafood on the pier.  Here, we met a young couple from Philadelphia; she was preparing to run in the Chicago Marathon the next day.

Lake Point Tower's surfaces have fun with the light!

The Wrigley Building appears to be "etched" into the side of Trump Tower behind it.

The River East Art Center's exterior, an old loft building, reveals nothing of the symmetrical beauty inside...

  1. I always love your photos of Chicago. One day I'll have to come over and look out for where you took them.
