One-block Milwaukee Ave

This is a one-block stretch of the famed Milwaukee Avenue that’s closest to the loop. On the northwest end it runs into a city block and disappears until it picks up again on the backside of the same neighborhood. On this end it sandwiches between some former businesses and utility buildings before ending at Lake.

I really like these angled streets. They present amazing views of the city, and there aren’t enough of them near the loop. Thanks to very few cars coming down the street, I decided I had long enough to wait for a train to pass by on the elevated tracks. This was the third that actually rolled through. On the first I was readjusting my tripod and missed it. The second went too slow to get a decent motion blur.
