The transition from winter to spring brings tons of fog. Then you add spring forward timing and you find yourself at the train station in fog at 5am. At least the lights of the train look cool searching around in the fog.

Nice and gloomy when I arrived downtown too.

Time to head to work and finish some deadlines early in the morning.

Now I have to head to a client meeting in another building. Fortunately I don't have to sit through this day long workshop these other guys were having.

I would be staring out the window daydreaming about being in the forests of Wisconsin during that workshop lol.

It is still dark and gloomy on my way back to the office. I'll try and get a shot of this building on a day where blue sky and a couple clouds are reflecting off the glass.

A quick distraction on my way back to the office. This is a little arch alcove embedded in the side of Union Station.

I went in to see how crowded Union Station was. Its only mildly crowded, better than it was during the pandemic where it was completely abandoned.

Older buildings in Chicago are pretty fun to explore as they took much more time designing every aspect of them. They put alot of ornamentation into this little side stairwell. I could probably do a whole post on just this building. Anyway gotta get back to work...

Thanks for looking :-)

It is beautiful that city. Great images of the city shrouded in fog.
Cheers

The fog makes it look nice and ominous or dystopian.

I do not miss my commute on the train to work I did for many years to be honest, but seeing your shots of Chicago do make me kind of miss my walks around NYC

WOW Unions Station is pretty impressive

Thanks for joining the Wednesday, its always fun for me to visit the walks from all around the world, getting a feel for communities where people live and what they see on their daily walks

Yeah I mostly fill my time on the train composing music on my midi keyboard. Or posting to hive :-)

thats cool you can compose on the train, I used to do work emails and hive mostly

I had to get just the right sized laptop and midi keyboard to make it happen.

great, I got the surface tablet that worked well for me on my commute

I thought about that one too but it was too small to rest the midi keyboard over the top of the keys. I got a converting hp instead with a good graphics card.

yeah it wouldnt be good for your need, but it works for me, using it now while sitting watching a movie with my wife LOL
