Last night I went on my 2nd Google+ photowalk. About a dozen of us convened at The Bean, with camera gear and tripods. I was rather surprised by how many people were out on the streets at 10pm. Granted, The Taste of Chicago was taking place, and there was an opera performance at the Jay Pritzker Pavilion.
Along our way up on Michigan Avenue, we were stopped a number of times by curious folks, asking why so many of us were out with cameras. Our standard response was to tell them Brad Pitt is in town. One girl even thought we were there to shoot a meteor shower. Hmm, don’t think downtown is the best place to shoot a meteor shower, with light pollution and all.
I took this long exposure at the median located at the intersection of Wacker and Michigan. There was barely enough space to fit my tripod, so it felt a bit scary standing there, as cars zoomed right past me.
