DescriptionOn the North bank of the Chicago River, the Wrigley Building is the Southern anchor of what has become Chicago's 'Magnificent Mile', Michigan Avenue. The high-end stores, landmark hotels, and historic sites make this one of the premier destinations for visitors.This view of the building effectively is gone, with the Trump International Hotel & Tower now residing behind and looming over it.
F. J. Sochacki Jr, Chicago Member Since May 2007 Artist Statement My name is Frank. I believe that wherever you may find yourself, there is something worth photographing; the hard part is being able to see it.
I began taking pictures a Pocket Instamatic, moving through various formats to 35mm as I grew older. My transition to digital began with a 1-setting 0.3 megapixel on closeout for $25. I continued to work with both film & digital, transitioning to a dSLR.
My hope is that as you look through the gallery you will find something which inspires you to look more closely around and see the beauty in the small, often overlooked details.
