The Chicago Series, Part I

Real. Raw. Unedited. Welcome to another edition of the Epsilon Photo Shoot! We have a brand new graphic and a whole new series to premiere. Hopefully it won’t be as boring as July 4, 2005! (I enjoyed the parade, but the other two shoots? Not so much. But that’s just me. Various focus groups tell me otherwise.) On July 7, 2005, I had the privilege of catching a train to Chicago for a day with a few of my siblings. That’s right… I rode on a train to a major city on 7/7/05. More on how the 7/7 attacks of that day impacted my day in a future spread.

But now for the spread at hand. All of these photos were taking either right outside Union Station, or through the window of a public bus. For real! I’ve had people who were taken aback when I pointed out that those pictures were taken through a window. Or taken aback that I took so many pictures while on a bus. Maybe I’ve gotten more of the later… Well, enough with the jibber-jabber… On with the show!

Finally, the John Hancock building tries to hide
amongst all the other buildings. I’m almost done
on the bus ride… Where do I wind up going?
