Thirty-six hours in Chicago

This last weekend my wife and I made a super quick trip to Chicago using some travel vouchers she earned from her work. We ate pizza, learned about some of the amazing architecture, walked around and most importantly, we spent time together. Although it wasn't a "photo trip" I did manage to sneak away and grab a few pictures. This is not one of those pictures. This is the last photo I took on this trip which is of the Sky's the Limit installation by Michael Hayden in the United Airlines terminal at O'Hare International Airport that runs between concourse B and C. Since I had only stopped in Chicago during a brief layover at Chicago Midway, I had never seen this in person and although I had seen tons of photographs of this, I hadn't shot it myself. Using a trashcan, I positioned a small Gorillapod on the outside rim to compose my shot. I took a series of images to find the right shutter speed to show the motion of the people walking and using the moving walkway. In the ten or so minutes I spent at this spot, I received all sorts of different looks from people walking by. People were confused/concerned, happy, and curious, and some seemed upset, and of course, the occasional photo bomber. 

Over the next week, I intend on publishing a couple more of these blog posts about our quick trip to the windy city.  They will be a little bit different from my normal posts as they are focused towards some of the gorgeous architecture that helps make up the ever-growing city.
