What can I say, going to Chicago is almost like a natural instinct now. My dear friend Munirah and I ventured out to the windy city for a vacation. Instead we were greeted by mounds of snow in a silent, white city. Nevertheless, we trolled bravely through the bad weather and managed a few photographs. More on their way!
The colors have vanished from the trees and it’s Thanksgiving break! My chicken’s brining in the fridge, the buttermilk is ready to do it’s job and the cheddar is all grated for the biscuits. I suppose it’s a good time to wrap up on some amazing colors of the season I so deeply adore.
A friend of mine recently moved to Ohio, and I packed my bags and paid a visit to what I would say is a prettier version of Indiana!
Average coffee, but very hip setting. The sitting area blew my mind.
Possibly the best burger I have had in some time now. Juicy, flavorful, well-cooked, balanced. What more could you ask for?!
It’s always sunny in Ohio. Well, maybe not, but the weather felt much clearer.
I have a certain love for relics, and this lamp qualifies. HAHA.
From the “deck” of the coffee shop. Wooden floors, my favorite season, and a quiet evening. Nirvana.
I just had to.
TADA! The seating area is a wooden deck overlooking a creek. So beautiful, and unlike our local Wabash river in Indiana, the water does not smell, although it is murky.
This past weekend, I was blessed with a long weekend aka Fall break. While I did cram in to my books for the first good half of it, I decided to venture out and about on Monday and Tuesday. First stop? Chicago, of course. I grabbed a dear friend of mine, told her to charge her camera and flock away with me. We rolled in some bushes and eventually tumbled in to the windy city. Made it back alive. I’m not an experienced driver, so yes city traffic pushes me to the edge, and it is always an accomplishment to come back in one piece (with no vehicle damage either) HAHA!
The windmills are a short drive from Purdue on the way to Chicago and are nestled amongst endless fields of soy beans.
We made it to the city just on time for some vibrant sunset colors on the sky. Fortunately for us the weather was quite clear. Photo taken at ISO 200, f/4.5
Chicago’s skyline is best seen from Adler Planitarium, especially at night. We fiddled around with our cameras for a while around here. Photo taken at ISO 200, f/25 and 30 sec exposure time.
The Wrigley building is really beautiful at night. f/22 , ISO 200 , exposure time 30 sec
Ihad developed quite an aversion to pretzel buns after eating at Kuma’s. However, Lockdown Bar and Grill was quite a treat. The burger was well-cooked, well-seasoned… and the cheese! UMMM! I think gorgonzola is my new favorite cheese. It goes so well on burgers!
It felt great to finally be able to photograph the windmills!
