A beautiful summer day for the most recent private photowalk. We started the day in Millennium Park and lucked out with some great clouds reflecting in the Bean (Anish Kapoor). Despite it being summer and it usually being very busy, it was pretty calm when we arrived at 9am on a Monday, allowing this detailed […]

However, with a stronger focus on details of both architectural elements and landscapes. Fun and a bit nerve-racking to […]
