This is the first time I share a post with another blog. I love Oolretaw's blog and wandering around Chicago with her. We share a mutual love for architecture and photos of it, and it seemed only natural to do a collaboration and a comparison of our two cities. I have never met Becca in person (or been to Chicago for that matter), but it's been so much fun discussing photos and cameras and cities. Much more of that! (Check her out on Instagram here as well) + Let me know what you think of this collaboration idea!
CHICAGO: Such a classic part of the heart of the city over our river. Marina city towers, old, and Donald Trump's tower, new. A very Miesian structure in the middle makes for a Chicago Sandwich.
CHICAGO: I love fire escapes, all hours of the day. Their shadows cast always make such sharp geometrical patterns.
CHICAGO: This picture could be timeless of Chicago, or many other cities in the world. This view is from outside my boyfriend's apartment, and the sun hits it in just the right angle every day. Brick, wood trim windows, and the power line just adds so much more character.
CHICAGO: A view of the street which is underdeveloped right now by my apartment screams for potential. For now it's covered in graffiti and boarded up doors. I kind of like it like that, for now.
CHICAGO: The loop is always a vista of buildings folded on top of each other, layers upon layers of windows and angles and colors and shapes. The eye never bores.
CHICAGO: Water towers in Chicago make Chicago. It's a shame they're all being taken down. Such a nice silhouette in a sunset. We must document them all as a staple in our history. I smell a new photo series.
CHICAGO: The sun shone beautifully that morning. I love peeking downtown to our city on a crisp fall morning as such, or any morning. Our skyline is so handsome.
