Although the day I visited, the city was full of light and color, the Windy City struts its stuff in black and white as well.  Come, get your kicks.

    Love those reflections in the second image!

    • I love the reflections that are seen everywhere in the city, although you have to be careful about looking up so that you don’t run someone over or get run over! Where The Bean shows curved and distorted reflections, these buildings have straighter but no less interesting lines.


  2. I’m always drawn to reflections, and your captures show how monochrome can bring even greater attention to designs and graphics revealed in reflections. Happy Photo Challenge.

    • Good morning, Sally. The monochrome really makes the reflections stand out, but the originals were close to monochrome than color, with some darker blues getting in there, too, so still attractive.

    I love all the lines, and the clarity of the black and white. These photos are perfect in monochrome.

    Okay you gotta tell me where the route 66 sign is. The last time I was in Chicago I looked for it and could not find the darn thing 😦

  7. I love Chicago and its architecture. Nicely done.

    • Thanks very much, Victoria. I’m not a big city person, at least for long periods of time, but Chicago is a pretty great one and lots of fun to walk around if the weather’s good.

    Love the second shot with its detorted reflections.

What do you think? I'd love to hear your thoughts on this, that or the other thing.
