With Cloudgate aka "The Bean" being one of the most photographed spots in America, I wanted to make sure I was there early enough to have it to myself for a couple minutes to try to put my own spin on the iconic sculpture... so I set my alarm for 4:45 am haha. I wish I had a dope story about how security let me in there early but they made me come back at 6 when it opened and I obliged, haha. Gotta pick and choose your battles.
A couple weekends ago I hopped on the train to downtown Chicago on a Friday night with no plans but to shoot photos all weekend. I ended up taking over 600 of them, all while falling in love with summer in the Chi again, which I haven't done since I was a kid. He's a few from the first night there, which happened to be Friday the 13th. No bad luck though.
