La Salle Street Bridge, Chicago

On my recent trip to Chicago, I knew I wanted to get pictures of two things – the moveable bridges over the Chicago River, and the eclectic mix of architecture that makes up the cityscape.  I was particularly pleased with the way this picture combined the two, especially since I’d been battling intermittent camera failure all day; this picture was captured during a brief resurrection before it finally gave up the ghost for the day.  After some research, I did get it working again after I got home, but it might be time to start looking for a replacement…

  1. Great composition…and very sorry to read about your camera troubles. You have me worrying now, I can only imagine how frustrating it would be to have my camera fail….. What make are you using?

    • Canon 7d. Thing that has me really concerned is that this error usually occurs after specific type of use (long exposures etc), which I don’t do – suspect there might be an underlying problem with the camera, and I don’t want to run the risk of this happening during a trip again!

  2. I am so happy you could get this picture as I have been through Chicago a little. I’m sorry to hear about your camera, but knowing they only last for a while is so sad when they seem like such great cameras. After being used so much, they tend to break down because of the parts inside have only so much time before they take a dump. I was also in Louisiana & got to see the boats on the river that take you touring giving you a nice view which is sweet also. will be catching up to the other posts as well. Great job!
