Chicago Meatpacking district, Lakeshore & Wrigleyville

Yesterday, April 2nd ...was the craziest weather day ever.  It started with a decent sunrise, but it quickly disintegrated into a series of snowfall cells, wind, sunshine and snow (did I mention snow?).  We planned to visit various locations during the day, and we did not let the weather stop us.  Most of the the photographs were taken on Kodak Tmax 400 film (awesomest BW film ever) and expired Konica SR-G 160 for color on Hasselblad 500c with 80mm Zeiss Planar f/2.8 lens.  Developed at home with D76 1:1 solution.  I hope you enjoy some of them.  

Chicago Chinatown Visit with Rollei & Ilford HP5+

Chicago Chinatown is situated south of downtown Chicago.  It is an interesting and vibrant community.  This was my first visit.  I used my Rollei 35mm camera because it provided autofocus and full automation with film, so I could focus more on the photographs.  I am attempting to develop my street photography skills, so this set is about the people in this interesting location.  Enjoy.  

Chicago in Winter with Yashica D & Verichrome Pan

I had a great opportunity to spend a day shooting in Chicago yesterday.  I brought together with me 35mm and medium format film cameras as well as digital.  I like them all in their own way.  I chose to shoot with some old Verichrome Pan film that I got on eBay for a good price.  They stopped making the specific film a decade ago.  I hope you enjoy this short selection of 8 images.
