Recently, I had the itch to be outside photographing and to be at the beach for one of the first warm days this year in Chicago. I decided to combine both of those desires which resulted in the photos below. It was peaceful being on my own with just my camera and bike with nothing in mind. It was freeing to explore the area and capture the beauty that surrounded me…one of my favorite things to do. The girl sitting on the stone wall was nice enough to let me photograph her into the scene which was a plus. I asked, so don’t worry I wasn’t creepin.
