Summer in Chicago

Not that I was looking but I happened upon the current temperature in Chicago. Much to my surprise, it was unseasonably warm. Especially so for the first week of January.

I find myself in Chicago pretty often and I have a fondness for the city. But my tolerance for cold weather and snow is pretty low, which means that I only go to Chicago in the winter when duty calls.

Duty to a freelancer means a paying gig.

But just try to keep me away in June, July, and August.

This seems to be a pretty good compromise. I get to avoid snowmageddons, blizzards and Yeti conventions while keeping most of my Chicago memories that took place from May to October categorized as simply lovely.

Like this session that took place on a perfect June day just steps away from Michigan Avenue near the firehouse at Water Tower.
