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.

Lunar New Year Parade on Argyle St. to celebrate the Year of the Dog. Argyle St. in Uptown is considered to be the “New Chinatown” as it has a concentration of ethnic-Chinese stores from Southeast Asia (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia etc.). It is one of the few neighborhoods of Chicago that has positive population growth in the last few years.

Crack the Whip is Seward Johnson’s installation at Navy Pier showing children holding hands and running in a semi-circle. One girl appears to be falling and is helped by others.

… that ate Chicago, February 4, 2018
Photographers angling for the best shot at today’s art.of.chi (an Instagram group) meet-up with the theme “Theatrical Smoke” under Chicago’s Wacker Drive (or thereabouts).
Shortly after the shoot, the participants just scattered about and disappeared. Then a Chicago fire truck blazed through the location. Somebody told I guess.
We like sunrise. I have been an early morning riser since I took this high school teacher job in Hammond, IN five years ago. I don’t have a choice (I have to be in school by 7:15 AM.). That’s why I am always out and about during weekends, alone or with frequent photowalk buddy Mark (of Mark Marshall Photography) taking pictures of the sunrise.
We conducted the first sunrise shoot of the year at the Fullerton esplanade overlooking the Chicago skyline from the north. It was quite frigid, I could only stand about 30 minutes of the cold, and had to leave Mark to seek warmth in the truck parked on Stockton and Fullerton.
But it was beautiful out there early in the morning.
Strange ice formation on a short stretch of the lakeshore on Northerly island. It’s just an isolated stretch, sort of a inlet where the trees and shrubs are covered with ice. The rest of the vegetation around aren’t.
