Today didn’t quite go as planned…I was going to meet up with two other photographers for some cityscape and architectural photography around Rush University Medical Center and UIC but once again, super low cloud cover, gray skies and lots of drizzle prevented that from happening. Instead, two of us headed to the Museum of Science & Industry for a quick trip.
Instead of focusing on street photography or the various exhibitions I went about photographing some of the architectural lines and abstract takes on a couple of the exhibitions…clearly this won’t give you a great idea of what the museum is all about but it does stay a bit truer to my typical way of seeing.
One of these days I’d also like to get some outdoor architectural images of this massive building which was originally designed as the Fine Arts Building for the 1893 World’s Columbian Exposition and is now the largest science museum in the western hemisphere (and one of my favorite Chicago museums). I need to plan a trip over there when we’re not having a gloomy, rainy day. There’s always plenty of options on the photographic to-do list!
