Securing the light

Creative block is not devoid of color; it is rather filled with it. The disconnect comes in the lack of motivation. You can still see what you need to see, but you can’t see reason to cultivate outcomes. I ran into this color wall in October but avoided it for almost three months as if it were chasing me. I’m way behind in editing photos. I haven’t taken any since December 13th while attempting to comb through the backlog.

A sliver and slices

The moon and some color, or is it a moon and the color?

Light and angles

Competing light sources kind of rule for photography. I know there are some that don’t like them, but with me it’s all quite welcomed. There was enough light in the sky to cast a shade of something down from above, then streetlights and window lights made for golden filler. It kind of screws up the colors, which is perfect to me. I decided to allow the buildings to fight for attention, too, as a hat tip to the light, I guess? I’m not sure. Just liked the angle.

Chicago Theater: the side with the sign with no view

As far as I know this sign has been part of the south wall brickwork of the Chicago Theater for decades. The theater must’ve had some low-rise neighbors in the past, because there’s no straight-on angle to view the sign. Straight-on angle… sounds oxymoronic. But there isn’t one, you see, and the double-digit-floor parking garage serves to both get you closer and as a deterrent to getting it as your mind’s eye sees it. This was taken off the second floor.

Color wall

The colors change and bounce around. Sometimes they fade in and out. I’ve tried to capture this scene in transition several times, but shooting the facade of the building straight-on doesn’t do much for me. It took placing trees in the composition to truly draw out the dynamic, bold color. This is the Randolph side of the building that houses the Goodman Theatre, and these windows actually look in on peoples’ offices. I’ve never seen anyone here working late. I’d imagine getting things done before the distraction of the light show is paramount!
