It took a lot of research, but, we finally found a film processor, located in the Chicago downtown Loop, who would develop E6 slide film in 4 hours- Gamma on W. Superior. Eight rolls were developed. Everything came out looking super, so, nothing needs to be re-photographed.
Yesterday we worked the Shedd Aquarium and surrounding area for 3 hours. It’s a cool spot from which to photograph the Chicago skyline. Millennial Park is another good place for skyline pictures.
Shedd has interesting exhibits showing different water levels occurring in nature and the fish and reptiles that live in each different water level. There are also special tanks for the areas in the world with cichlids.
Herp lovers will enjoy the large lizard exhibit. There are frilly dragons, bearded dragons, chameleons, gecko, basilisk, komodo dragons, and more.
Today we worked the stores and area of North Michigan Avenue and the Chicago River, including Water Tower Place. The newest upscale shopping mall is 900 North Michigan. We enjoyed a delicious lunch at the Oak Tree Restaurant there.
A favorite photogaphic study of mine is store windows and reflections. Even better is having a pedestrian looking in the window, too. Tiffany’s Michigan Avenue windows were some used today. That film won’t be developed until next week. then we’ll add a window reflection picture here.
