Day 68: Squares

SquaresDid some pointillist squares in pen tonight. It was pretty easy, which was good because I made a rather fancy dinner of braised short ribs and my first-ever mashed homemade mashed potatoes. The meal turned out pretty good.

A few weeks ago, I focused on taking pictures of Chicago on a large scale, so today I decided to focus on the details and textures of the Loop. I took inspiration for these photos from the beautiful and tactile photography from Sarah Takes Pictures. Although her photos are much more organic in nature than the photos I took today, they helped me think about the beauty that can be seen when looking at an object close-up.
