My route for my downtown Chicago walks covers many miles. It is one of my favorite thing to do in any city but Chicago offers up so much. I took a walk down the river towards Michigan Ave. and saw this bridge. I was underneath it and used the double exposure function of Hipstamatic to achieve a color BW look for the bridge and make it somewhat abstract. I kind of like it.
I was in London just over a week ago and spent some time shooting under bridges and the patterns of some of the supporting structures. I think I need to make a project out of these.
Chicago is such a fun place to shoot street photography. You can get some real interesting images of some very unusual people and you can shoot shots like this that mix the city, steel and people into one image. I liked the framing and was trying to balance the perspective and composition out when a person walked into the image. Click and I got it. Make with a Phase One IQ180. Yes, you can shoot street stuff with medium format.
Ever wonder what holds up the great Sydney Bridge? this is an image of one of the four footings. Can you imagine the size of the wrench needed to tighten these big nuts? Actually I like the geometry and feel of this. Sometimes man made things are so much fun to shoot images of.
