Cold Morning on the “L” (Chicago, Illinois)

This winter, a few days after getting my new camera, I was super excited to try it out so I woke up early on a Sunday morning to head out and shoot the sunrise over the city. Before I got out to the Planetarium though I stopped at the Adams/Wabash “L” (Elevated Train in Chicago) stop and took a few pictures of the Trump tower.

There was a surprising number of trains in the loop that morning – way more than I would have imagined on a Sunday morning when the loop is pretty dead (it’s dead most of the weekend down in the business area though). I captured the streaks of a passing train in this image but had to wait for awhile before getting shots of the clear tracks below because it seemed there were trains constantly moving through this frame.

  1. Wow ….. what more can I say!!! Now one of my favorites of your art. Brilliant … you should try to sell it as postcards, because the postcards I found in Chicago isn’t the most artistic ones. This is. You have many great photo … just go for it.

  2. Great shot. Last time I was in the city, Trump Tower was still under construction. I’m visiting family this week in IL and had every intention of taking the train into the city for a little architectural photography but with Lolla going on I’ll stay in the burbs. Skyline photos taken from the Planetarium area are always nice. I look forward to seeing your shots.
