Connect the Dots

If you’ve ever been to Chicago, you might agree that if the city lacks anything it certainly isn’t in the “magnificent views” category.

Here’s a photo from last night. Facing north I used a Sony A6000 mirror-less camera from our 31st floor balcony above Indiana and Cermak. If you look closely you’ll notice that everything on the right side of the street below is duplicated (to a certain extent) on the left side of the street – that’s because it’s all bouncing off of the building’s windows.


  • 6 sec shutter speed
  • Aperture f/36
  • ISO 100
The view from our balcony. South Loop, Chicago, IL.

I think I might try again soon, when it’s clear and there’s little wind, with a higher ISO. I hope you enjoy it. If the spirit moves you, feel free to connect the dots!
