Waiting At The Entrance Of Millennium Park

My last morning in Chicago I walked around making photos. I wanted to get into Millennium Park to photograph the sunrise at the Bean, but I was met with a security guard on a segway who said that the park didn’t open until six a.m. A line started to form, but instead of just standing there I went out to make a couple of photos. I don’t get much time in Chicago so I didn’t want to waste any of the early morning light. I kind of liked this photo of the large head at the entrance of the park looking out towards the city. The yellows and blues play very nice here.

 The Dividing Line of Chicago

One thing that I like about this photo is the fact that you see the North/South dividing line of Chicago. On a weekend with the Crosstown Cup being decided I thought that it was cool to see where the city is divided along those lines. To the left you have the South Side of Chicago, and obviously to the right you have the North Side. The sculpture “Looking Into My Dreams, Awilda” looks down the gap in between the two. I will have a little bit more about the sculpture in a future post.
