"Come and show me another city with lifted head singing so proud to be alive and coarse and strong and cunning." - from Carl Sandburg's poem "Chicago"
I love discovering big cities! I've always wanted to meet Chicago, and thanks to the sweetest couple, Alex & Craig, I finally go to. I've decided that Chicago is the perfect combination of New York and Boston. The skyscrapers, bold and unique, are among the tallest in the world. Though it hurt my neck, I loved looking up at them.
For a film photographer, the city is like a playground. The beautiful architecture, artwork, and the water, deep and blue, of Lake Michigan provided the most romantic backdrops for Alex & Craig's engagement pictures.
I wouldn't be fair to the city if I didn't mention the rich and diverse culinary experience. I will be diplomatic and not get into the thin crust vs. thick crust pizza debate. I will say that the food in Chicago is incredible. I absolutely love neighborhood restaurants, enriched with cultural relevance.
