Low Light – High Life

I spent the holidays with my sister in Green Bay. To save hundreds on travel, I booked my fight to Chicago. This gave me the opportunity to spend a day with my niece in her college town of Milwaukee, and to visit Chicago with a friend.

Chicago water tower at night

My hotel was in the swank water tower district. I had enough time after my landing, and before going to bed for a short brisk walk to check out the sites. It was late. And cold.


My friend had given me a mapped out a trajectory taking me from my hotel to the tower. On my way I saw this ghostly church. It wasn’t on my “guided” pathway, but being wild and impulsive I took a detour.

Not all who wanter are lost.

I may not be in the shadows, but I can still enjoy admiring the contrasts. 2015 = Expect the unexpected.

  1. Love, love, love your interpretation of the photo challenge! The contrast is great. Don’t you love being implusive? Adventures w/ my camera are the best!


  2. Great shots, Marie! I recognized these great sites in Chicago right away! You’ll see some shots of Chicago in my blog too. All the best in 2015–Patti

    1. It was actually so mild for the locals some were actually wearing shorts. SHORTS! I was freezing, and some were in shorts. 🙂


  4. if you were freezing and the others were wearing shorts, are you sure you were in Chicago and not in Canada??
