Slice of Life: Snowstorm - January 7, 2010

Walking around town in the snow today with my CrappyCameraPhone™.  It's very quiet in Chicago.  For a time, I was the only person at Caribou Coffee across from Millennium Park.  Normally, getting a seat here is impossible during daylight hours, let alone at lunchtime.


  1. I love the last photo.

    Cloudgate and the Jay Pritzker Pavilion have a mysterious north triberly monstery feel because of:
    -the monochromatic palette
    -snowy misty air
    -the vantage point. Lines of trees lead to the Gehry on the horizon and Cloudgate creeps in from the right
    -the traffic is veering to the left as if to avoid the creepy Millennium Forest which is the home to the heavily-armed Gehry Fortress of Solitude and the fierce Abominable Snowbean


  2. Glad you like it. I shot it from a meting room on the fifth floor of the Chicago Cultural Center.
