It’s funny how you can live in a city your whole life and then a series of events puts you on a different train than usual, and you see another side of something very familiar, in a new way.
I’ve been spending a lot of time on the Brown Line these days on Chicago’s L trains. And sometimes I take it all the way around the Loop, just to see some things I don’t often see. Passing buildings I don’t often pass.
And I look out the window. Sure, I could be checking my Instagram. But sometimes, it’s just nice to look out a window instead. We have a brilliant library on the south end of the Loop, the Harold Washington Library, named after Chicago’s first African-American Mayor. It’s huge. It’s ornate. And did you know they have a 3D printer that you can use for free? Well, they do.
Sometimes it’s good to take the long way around.
And as with this and any photograph from my blog and many others on my main billysheahan.com website, you can purchase prints by clicking on the Buy Print button below each photo. Thanks to many of you who have already done just that. I greatly appreciate your kind support!
