Christine at Lilly's in Chicago

All this time the photos I have taken of Christine had been at Paul Henry's Art Gallery. Not a bad thing. Christine, however, does play gigs at other venues. She invited me in the past. This time I took her up on it. I went to Lilly's in Chicago to hear her perform.

Here are some photos . . .

Lilly's is a pretty cool place. It is also the namesake of my mom and a young friend of mine. I thought of both when I saw the sign. Inside, the venue is original. At least to me. Take a look . . .

On the way home I saw this view. Passed here many times, though the itch to photograph was not as strong as it was this evening. I had to turn around and take some shots.

I guess I enjoy travel. I write that because people feel I am putting in a lot of effort to go to places to photograph. I look at is as a need to fulfill a passion. The travel is the journey. The means to a never ending journey. There is so much more I want to do with my photography. I look back at my photos and see me in them. I guess I want me to be more than the photos I have taken so far.

Support the arts. Support roots music. Support the individual musician voicing their passion, like Christine. (If you are looking for a female vocal for your gig, ask her . . .) When you get a chance, support our local businesses, like Lilly's.
