Chicago happens to be one of my favorite cities. One of the reasons I’ve grown so fond of it is because of its relative nearness to where I live. I can hop an Amtrak train from Elkhart, Indiana in the morning, then spend the day walking around, taking pictures. Then take a return train that evening. It also means that some of the photographs can be taken after dark, an excellent time for urban pictures. I focused this visit on Chicago Union Station and the area around it.
