Pondering Chicago

One wouldn't imagine winter to be the mot opportune season to photograph in and around Chicago. I happen to find it ideal. Not only does it give you access to tourist attractions without hoards of people it also allows you to see things in entirely new ways. Few cities are linked so strongly to their weather. Los Angeles most certainly conjures up thoughts of sunny days and warm weather. Seattle makes us think of wet and rainy days. Chicago brings to mind blustery snow and a cold that is just brutal. What better time of the year to explore the true identity of Chicago than winter? The above photograph was taken near Diversey and Stockton, it shows Alexander Hamilton looking upon the city of Chicago.
