Day 330: Milwaukee Avenue

BuildingYesterday, we went for a long walk up Milwaukee Avenue, and I took some pictures. Since we left the house around 3 or 3:30, it got dark while we were walking, which meant that some of my pictures from the walk are much darker than others. Actually, on a whole the collection is sort of non-congruous, which might be because Milwaukee changes quite a bit as you walk northwest from my neighborhood. Just north of my house, it’s rather sparse and open, but past Logan Square it changes and becomes much more closed in, with old retail shops, some of them rather run down, crowding both sides of the street. That said, it’s always a nice walk, and makes for excellent people watching.

Milwaukee Avenue Under MoonThe moon looked really pretty above this building, and I liked the way the street lights made the building look so orange. It contrasted nicely with the blue sky.

Mannequin ButtsButt mannequins are a pretty common sight in Chicago. They always crack me up.

Neon Hotel SignI’m sort of obsessed with neon signs, so this hotel sign was an obvious subject for me.
