Scenes from the City | Downtown Chicago

1 Comment

One of my favorite parts about living in East Lakeview, is that I can jump right on the express bus off my corner and head downtown in seven minutes flat. Some nights, I return from a long day at work, drop off my work bag(s) and head downtown just to remember why I moved here in the first place. This place is inspiring — the architecture, the people, the lake — I find I form a hundred different stories in my head while riding the train, waiting for the bus, or walking the streets. The problem is finding the time to get them all down on paper.

Here’s one particular photo of downtown I am excited to share from an evening walk. Enjoy.
