Music high in the air

Sundays on State

On our recent Chicago trip, on Sunday morning we found a few blocks of State Street closed for a street party. There were games, and public art, and food, and some pop-up shops with various wares. We didn’t stay too long but we did walk through a few times to make some photos.

This guitarist was way up in the air in an enormous dress, right in front of the iconic Chicago Theater. Another young woman was busy drawing some sort of mural on the skirt.

When I walked around behind her, it was apparent how all of this works. The guitarist climbed a stepladder up into her perch, and poked her head out the top! Somebody surely had to hand her guitar up to her.

    Beautiful photography as always. And I am also an audiophile, music lover, and record collector, this appeals to my sensory desires. Glad to see live music back in action. And in a classic venue.

      I am a wannabe audiophile and former record collector! But I’m a genuine music lover. I’ll see pretty much anything performed live.
