The city of Chicago was on the top of my places to visit in the United States for a long time. This summer I finally had a chance to go up there with my wife and stay with one of her friends for several days. I took everyone opportunity I could to walk around and explore the city. There were a lot of interesting places and people to photograph. I also loved how there were art installations and by citizens all over the city. The street photography opportunities here are endless.

Chicago Beach

Before this visit I did not know that Chicago had a beach. This area of the city surprised me the most. I really enjoyed walking a long it and photographing every interesting thing I saw.

Wicker Park

Wicker Park was the first neighborhood I explored in Chicago. My wife and I went there and walked around the neighborhood. The murals and storefronts were particularly interesting to me. Since this was my first time here, I was intrigued by almost everything I saw. The sculptures in the city parks were amazing too.

While walking around downtown we took a short trip to visit the famous Chicago library. We went to the top floor enjoyed the beautiful naturally lit space.
