A Spring Walk

Last week, on a warmer day (before the snow hit), I went for a quick walk around the neighborhood to get out of the house. It had been raining off and on all day and everything looked refreshed and green. Hopefully this is the last of the snow and the weather will begin getting warmer so more of these walks are possible.

As promised, here is the second part of the post I began yesterday. These are the photos I felt were the best of the bunch and worthy of their own post. Upon further review of the images there is most definitely a theme of “upward” in this set. Weird and unplanned but whatever. That’s just how I roll. Check ’em out below and let me know which your favorites are from both posts in the comments.

After a recent snowfall I had come to realize that I’ve never went out on a winter photo walk while living in Chicago. This seems a bit odd considering it seems like winter is 7 months out of the year but when the cold weather hits and the snow starts falling I really have no desire to go out into the howling winds and low temps once I am warm and cozy. I suppose all photographers feel like that at some point. Anyway, something must have crawled up my butt the other day because I finally ventured out and braved the weather to get some photos.

This is day one of a two-day post of photos from my outing. It’s a lot of the same places I went on my last photo walk during the fall. I wanted to stay close to home and revisit those familiar scenes to see them in a new light. Today’s post features the photos that I liked but didn’t quite “make the cut.” I figured I’d save the best for last and post my set of favorites tomorrow.

The inspiration for this set of photos is from a bike ride that I went on yesterday into some areas around the apartment that I hadn’t visited before. Lots of nice plants, animals, water and rusty industry. Yesterday I had my phone with me so I snapped a bunch of Instagram photos but this morning I went back out with my DSLR to capture some more wonderful scenes around the city.

I decided to take a little bike ride this morning before getting down to work. Sunny skies, calm beaches and a light breeze made it the perfect morning to go and relax by the water. Hit the jump to see a bunch more photos from around the water.
