Just got home last night from a weekend photography trip to Chicago. The trip was a spur of the moment trip for me and a photographer friend of mine. We've been wanting to get away on a short weekend for some time and just relax.
If you are a photographer, pro or wanna-be pro, you understand that having your family around is not always the best for shooting stuff. I enjoy a slower pace of strolling through the city than would be allowed by my wife and three kids, so it was off to Chicago with a friend who is as slow as me.
We decided to rent a small house in the Lincoln Park area just North of downtown. We were right down the street from DePaul University. It's a cool, hip and very young neighborhood. The only issue was the sub-zero weather. (It is Chicago in Feb)
Here are a couple snaps from the trip:
Here the the Airbnb listing if any of you are interested:
I would stay there again!
