Street Photography

How do you define street photography?  Wikipedia definition lists it as  a type of documentary photography that features subjects in candid situations within public places.  I think that’s broad enough to cover it.  I also think it doesn’t even require people as subjects, it could be the lack of people that makes the situation interesting.  So what?  Well the idea is that we’ll be putting on a “Your Style: Street Photography” Challenge coming up.  Get your thinking caps on, this one should be good!

In the Signature Room

Whenever I visit Chicago, this spot seems to hit my ‘to do’ list.  It’s kind of unknown, or at least whenever I talk about it, people seem to have passed it by.  It’s called The Signature Room, or the Signature Lounge (depending on what floor you go to, 95 or 96).  It’s located in the John Hancock building, and the funny thing is that it’s free to get in to, but actually a floor higher than the Observatory!  Now the observatory does offer some cool stuff too so I’m not saying don’t do it, but this place is cool too to go in, sit down and have a nice beverage.  The nice thing about going up in the JHC is that you get views of all the downtown buildings.   I’m always looking for new things to take pictures of, and these two from our last visit up top were pretty fun.
