It’s been awhile since I’ve shot the el, I’ve taken a little break since completing my From the ‘L’ series. But today I thought I’d grab the chance to shoot from a location I’ve been meaning to get to for months. The corner of Lake & Wells is an ideal location to get some shots of the el from a higher vantage point…all the curves from the various lines converging before heading off in different directions creates such interesting lines.
Since I know this is a favorite location of Chicago photogs, I’d love it if you shared your images of the el. Each photographer seems to come up with their own unique perspectives which is so fun to see. Feel free to post links in the comments section below, I’d love to hear from you (and of course see your take on this popular scene)!
To see all the photos from the morning, head over to the Flickr set, there’s even one black and white thrown in;)
Also, a photographer friend of mine happened to be out shooting this around the same time I was, must be on the same wavelength…check out his post here. He’s the editor of the blog I sometimes contribute photos to, Out of Chicago, be sure to check it out and subscribe. And don’t miss his big announcement about the ebook he’ll be offering soon, it’s not to be missed!
