West Loop Memory
Another image from the archives, this time inspired by a Facebook post from a friend living in the old hood in Chicago. She snapped a sunset image tonight and as soon as I saw it I knew the exact water towers she had shot as they were a dominant feature on my skyline for a decade. The sunsets over the West Loop had magic potential as the air pollution finally revealed it’s one and only gift in refracting and reflecting the low angle sun light. I miss the true urban jungle and it’s chaos. It’s not always beautiful, but when everything falls into place it is truly sublime. This image was shot 6/27/06, only a few weeks after I had bought my first dSLR, a Canon 30d. Kinda fun to dig for this one as I found a few other “lost children” in the process, so thanks Rebecca!
