I had a chance to head to Chicago again on business this year. It was a nice enough trip (when isn’t Chicago nice in the summer?) and I even caught a bit of the filming of Transformers 3 at the tail end of my trip. Nothing too spectacular.
On my trip I took a bit more of a practical selection of equipment than my last trip. I took a single OM-1 with S-20 flash (which I didn’t use at all), Zuiko 24mm f/2.8, Sigma 28mm f/1.8, Zuiko 35mm f/2.8, Zuiko 50mm f/1.4 and Zuiko 135mm f/3.5 along with 3 rolls of film.
On Monday I wandered a lot of the water front. On Tuesday and Wednesday I didn’t have much time for photography because of work, but on Thursday things ended a little earlier and I wandered before and after dinner along with wandering about the subway Thursday night.
All of the color pictures were taken with Fuji pro 400h and the B&W were taken with Ilford XP2 super. I have another roll from the very last day of my trip taken on Fuji Superia 400, but I haven’t finished the roll yet.
