Today's post is yet another bridge photo from Columbus. I was really drawn to this area when searching photos of Columbus, and I was not disappointed.
It took some digging to discover the name of this statue which is "Habakuk" by Ewerdt Hilgemann and is a tribute to Max Ernst. Googling "crumpled statue near lake shore drive" didn't return many results, however, I did discover the search by map feature on the Chicago Park District Website, where I was able to figure it out.
Here is a view of downtown Columbus from the Main Street Bridge. We were very lucky to have minimal wind early this morning, and the still water made for almost perfect reflections.
I wish I could say that I was returning here physically, but instead I loaded some of my old raw photos from my 2014 trip to Iceland. Looking at these old photos has given me the travel bug, and I'm hoping that 2017 will bring me some new adventures.
Another shot from a quiet Wells Street taken around 6am this Saturday morning. While there was almost no traffic this particular morning, I did have to set up the shot in the middle of the street. It's a little bit scary doing this, but I was extremely careful, and had all the settings and tripod positioning in place so that all that I had to do when I stepped into the street was set up my composition and hit the shutter button.
Today's picture was taken on Wells Street near Lake Street underneath the 'L' tracks. If you grew up playing Nintendo 64 like me, you might recognize this scene from the game Cruisin' USA, pictured below:
I was going to name this photo "Under the Bridge", but I realized that I already have a photo with that name. This was taken from under the Rich Street Bridge in downtown Columbus, Ohio.
Today's post is a tribute to the Chicago Lakefront Trail, upon which I've run, walked, and cycled hundreds of miles over. Don't worry, this was taken during a very low traffic evening, and I wasn't blocking any runners with my tripod.
Today's shot is one that I took on the run through the loop shortly after sunset. I've been trying to be a little more spontaneous with my photography, trying to go out when the lighting and weather are interesting, as opposed to when it is convenient with my schedule. Hopefully I can keep this up.
Today's shot is one from Museum Campus, a favorite spot of mine lately. The foreground is composed of light graffiti from Lake Shore Drive contrasting with the still lights of the Chicago skyline.
