They call it Black Friday but I call it Black & White Friday. On the Friday after Thanksgiving, I go to downtown Chicago and take photos of anything and everything that suits me. This is the third year in a row that I have set off on my own to observe the crowded streets and feel the energy that you can only get in a place like Chicago or New York. I don’t actually shop for anything myself except for my traditional peanut butter cookie snack or maybe a hot dog or bratwurst. It’s not about shopping for me.
This year I spent part of my time taking street photos of people passing by (en passant). So I got a lot of blurry shots of people on the street but it was fun.
