At the Japanese Garden, a part of the larger Garden of the Phoenix at Chicago’s Jackson Park with photowalk buddies Mark, Nenad and Lucy, June 11, 2018.
We planned to have a sunset shoot, but the sun was nowhere to be found. We stayed anyway just because.
From the Garden of the Phoenix website:
“The new Garden of the Phoenix symbolizes Japan and US’s 160-year story of friendship, turmoil and prosperity. This park, home to Skylanding by Yoko Ono, a revitalized landscape and future pavilion, is a public space to reflect on our history and watch the future rise.”
Nenad in infrared (he was taking infrared shots so I thought I would render this in infrared).

My first time to shoot in this south side beach.
A few college classmates from veterinary school dropped by Chicago over the long weekend. It was fun reminiscing and touring them around the usual spots.
They had the Bean all to themselves. It pays to go there very early in the morning on a Tuesday.

I wasn’t the only one on the beach to witness the birth of the day on Earth Day.

I was at Navy Pier early this morning (March 11, 2018) to catch the sunrise, but these two runners who also were photographing, were already there. And left before the sun rose.
