I was in Chicago this week for business, and had a little (though not a lot) of time to go out and take a few shots. I haven’t processed everything from the trip, but I thought I’d show two from the harbors along Lake Michigan. The first is the Chicago Harbor Lighthouse, which was built in 1893 and moved to its current location in 1917. It’s now automated, so no one needs to man it in the evenings. It had been an overcast day, but we had a small break in the clouds, which set up the beautiful cloud structure behind the lighthouse for this shot.
This second shot was taken outside the Museum Campus, near the Field Museum and Shedd Aquarium. This bicycle path wraps around the aquarium on the lakefront. I loved the geometric pattern of the steel wall with the rocks below.
