Film Photography, Travel

Crossing the Chicago River on Kodak T-Max 400

I had a lot of good photographic luck on our early-January trip to Chicago. So much so that I’m still sharing photographs from the trip in late March! I made these crossing the Chicago River at both Jackson Street and Adams Street. On Adams Street, we were walking to our breakfast at Lou Mitchell’s; on Jackson Street, we were on our way back. It was the end of our trip; driving home followed breakfast. I had Kodak T-Max 400 in my Olympus XA, and I hoped to finish it before we got back to our parking garage. I failed, but it was fun trying. I’m usually careful not to waste shots when shooting film, but on this walk I photographed freely. It was a lot more fun that way!

    You are definitely making me miss Chicago……..I wish I had been more into photography when I lived there.

    I always really enjoy seeing pictures from Chicago. What’s that tiny dark thing (light on its surface) sticking out of the side of the tower, in the first frame? Just out of curiosity, where did you grow up in the city? My brother lives in Logan Square.

    • I have no idea what that object is!

      I grew up in South Bend, Indiana, and except for one summer when I lived in Krefeld, Germany, I’ve lived in Indiana all my life. I’m in a suburb of Indianapolis now.
