Chicago Street Art

Okay guys enough with the tomfoolery, i need to start posting again and one of my favorite things in the universe is street art.  I’m obsessed with graffiti, i cant ride or walk past it without taking a picture. My  idea of ‘the life’ is continuously getting lost in new cities admiring the street and imagining who did it and when, fortunately i was able to do that in the Chi a few weeks ago!

I started taking a photography class about 6 weeks ago so this trip gave me a lot of time to play with my camera

Not all of the street art in Chicago was painted on walls some was literally sitting or walking in the park

Does anyone else immediately see a face?

So yeah my time in Chicago was amazing, i got to visit a friend, connect with an old one, and give myself blisters from roaming around  all day. It really is such a beautiful city with a bad reputation, i  was pleasantly surprised at how lovely it was, not saying i was expecting Compton but people make it sound so bad and I’m sure there are bad parts but you can say that about everywhere and everyone. I will def be back to eat breakfast at Macs Restaurant and play volleyball at North Ave Beach and of course to roam.
