My obsession with pops of color and CTA trains is evident in most of my Chicago train imagery; give me a pop of teal blue and I’m over the moon. Add in the unexpected twist of a moose in the middle of this crazy town and, well, I can’t resist. My photo of the week, “In Search of Squirrel,” is also one of my favorites.

Shot in the South Loop of Chicago, in the Wabash Arts Corridor, this was a delightful photograph to shoot. I was immediately struck by the geometric patterns created by the different buildings; Chicago’s architecture fascinates me in that way. You can have four completely diffrent styles of architecture right next to one another, each building with their own color, their own personality, and somehow it just works.

Lugging everything to the location for hours of setup: your tent, your display gear, the work. Here in Chicago, this typically happens in hot and humid weather, with the chaos of everyone else setting up at the same time, plus the noise of the city,  so you’re a sticky, sweaty ball of confusion and
