Urban Macro is Really Hard
Another shot in my long neglected urban macro series. I found this on one of the Purple Line platforms in Evanston. I've neglected this series for a few reasons, but they primarily come back to this: urban macro is really hard. It's hard from a technical standpoint, but more importantly, it's just hard to find compelling urban macro photos. Oh sure, I could easily go out and shoot random picture of brickwork or cracks in the sidewalk, but those wouldn't be very interesting. What I'm looking for are photos that say something unique about the urban environment, and if possible, Chicago.
Ah well... the series goes on, just more slowly than expected.
