For a few months by Genesis-Orbit For a few months by Genesis-Orbit
As some of you might know I've been living in Chicago, and I'll be closing in on about 1 month soon. I got to admit, it's been a great experience so far and I've made a lot of friends and all that jazz so it's nice. This picture describes the prominent themes and differences that make living in the city distinct.

The city seems to work as a machine a lot; like you get out of the door and everyone does what they need to do in their daily life to get by, and this is a very cool thing for me because I'm the type of person to sit back and reflect on how life is going and just think about, well, stuff like this. The city is the perfect example of the mentality that 'you're thrown into this world, live, and then you die.' This picture shows the fast pace of Chicago, and the blurriness emphasizes the idea that sometimes we need to sit back and look back on our lives to see where we've gone and where we're going. No one wants a mid life crisis right? Hope you like :D

Great speed effects! I suppose u took the shot exactly when ya reached to see the light gleam of the subway train since the platform on the other side is pretty cviewable still on the shot. Sweet angle too :) !

Well you can actually start to see the light a good minute or 2 before it gets there, so I took it right when it reached the platform.

Ah so this was your evening out photo? I looooove subway shots. The public transit system is often the bloodline of the city and has a message all of its own.

Yeah we got CTA cards which let us use the CTA trains as many times as we want for some amount of time.
