Taking a Break

Atypical Chicago Skyline - by Michael Courier

This was near the Morgan Green Line stop. I arrived a bit early to a client meeting, just as sunset was approaching. I like that it’s an atypical skyline photo with a focus on creation, rather than completion.

Cloudgate - by Michael Courier

Prior to heading to my client meeting, I spent some time at Cloudgate playing with the reflections.

Last week I made some time for some personal photography, walking, and clearing my head. I explored downtown, the West Loop, the Lincoln Park Zoo, and the Lincoln Park Conservatory. It was a much needed creative break and fun to shoot outdoors a bit.

After spending an hour at the Lincoln Park Zoo, this was my favorite photo from the place. I took this outside of the reptile house and was fortunate to catch some interesting light.

The fern room at the Lincoln Park Conservatory is my favorite place to visit.
