Day 81

Urban - and, I can't decide! Which one do you like for my 365? Most votes on this and my fb wins. :) I really don't know. I like them all for different reasons...and here they are:


1. This one because of the cobblestones. All the streets in Chicago were once covered with this, then paved over at a later time. 
I always look at the old cobblestones. I just love them. Plus it just started to rain, 
and I liked the look of that.



2. This one because I just thought it looked cool, but then I've done a lot of gadgety things lately.


3. This one because it just is typical Chicago. Newspaper vending machines 
on every other corner.


4. This one because we pass it twice a week going downtown. It's in Greektown and I 
just love the outside of it. So much character.


 5. And this one just because there's a church everywhere, it's kind of cool sticking 
out among the high rise buildings.

Mine would either be 1 or 5. Having lived there, I'd say that 5 is more indicative of Chicago's high rise buildings. They are all great though! :)

Laurie said...

My pick is 1 :) I love cobblestones too. There are still a few roads in Charleston, SC that have cobblestones. I love the character of them.

Amanda said...

#1 is my favorite for sure. Cannot wait to go to the North End of Boston and try that shot out for myself :)

I absolutely LOVE the first one! It is very creative, and has such a great feel to it.

really like the cobble stone and the bike pedal fabulous DOF

Kristin said...

They are all great; I can see why you're having a hard time deciding...so am I! I keep going back and forth and just can't narrow it down to one as I like them all!

Melissa said...

Oh geeze, I had to look at all of them several times before I could choose and I could only narrow it down to two, #1 & #4. I really tried to choose one but you can't go wrong with any of them.

Tracy said...

These are all beautiful! I love the perspective on the first. They are all just lovely!

Misty said...

Terrific photos! I really like them!

Kathy C. said...

Kara, they are all great shots, love the church one and the greek place... however, I will vote for the cobblestones because it makes me feel like I am somewhere and I get to use my imagination as to where. :) Besides, I love cobblestones. :)

Angie Willis said...

Definitely the bike for me. They're all great but that one's special

Candi said...

I love the 1st one

Chelsea said...

I LOVE number 1. It's just such a great angle!

Kara said...

Yay! It's overwhelmingly #1! Thanks for all your comments. This is fun because it's the original shot I wanted, and the one I liked the best. But then just wasn't sure. Thank you!!!

Kristal said...

Really love #1... but so hard to choose!

Magnolia_Mom said...

These are all awesome!

Missus Wookie said...

I was going to vote for 1 and then saw you'd already gone for it. But the last one is the sort of juxtaposition architecturally that I like.

Amanda said...

They are all great...but if I had to choose a favorite it would be the first one!

Tracy said...

First one.

Kim said...

these are beautiful .. you make the common things look so beautiful

karren said...

My faves are the cobblestone street, and also the church. they are all nice though.

Lynn said...

I really like the angle of #4, and #1. They are my top two picks, but all are excellent.

I love the first one- almost looks like tilt-shift photography!
And Greektown? Never heard of it, but MMMMMMmmmm!

Flower Photography said...

I love the first one lots!

Karin said...

I'm torn between the church and the cobblestone street. Both are wonderful! You are a very talented photographer, Kara!

Anita said...

All of them are great shots, but I love cobblestones, so that is my favorite.
