Dave Robillard was visiting Chicago like us. He works for a background screening company and is in town for a business meeting. His hobby and passion is photography, so I felt it fitting that I would capture at least one other traveling photographer as part of this project. Dave’s inspiration with Chicago is easily understood. Like myself, he enjoys the architecture, the night-time lighting and cityscapes. Dave was capturing some time-lapse exposures for his project. I had seen him earlier on shooting elsewhere in Millenium Park. He also mentioned to look him up on flickr (search his name)…So, go ahead and have a look!!! We didn’t have much time to talk to Dave– our meter was running out and dave needed to return to his project.
A picture of us with Dave in Millenium Park at about 7:30pm. After photographing the town a little, a natural hunger began to grow so we ate at a pretty good Italian Restaurant in downtown, drove back to the hotel to prep for out next drive– to the Black Hills of South Dakota.

A classic park deserves a classic drawing, here we chose the front of the stadium with its famous Wrigley Field sign. The clouds in the background gave it a dynamic feeling that wouldn’t have done it justice without– what a place to be! The entire block surrounding the stadium is actually called Wrigleyville and hosts an array of pubs, restaurants and sports bars. We visited one, that had their own micro-brewery contained within. It was called Goose Island Brewpub and served up a nice beer! Oh, yeah: the Cubs played the Brewers and won 6:1!!!
