I really enjoy photographing Chicago in the winter. The city just has a different feel when everything is covered in snow. A scene that you've seen a million times looks suddenly new and fresh, and color, whenever you can find color, it really stands out.
This week's photo was taken near Loyola Beach in the Rogers Park neighborhood. I took a similar photo a few years ago of a different basketball court. I like the shallow depth of field in that one, but I think this week's shot works better as a winter scene.
