Shortly after Thanksgiving, I snapped a few pictures in downtown Chicago that felt very “Christmas” to me. I posted them to my Facebook page, and got a good response, so I started seeking out shots that felt very classic Christmas in Chicago to me. I’ve compiled them here in one gallery for you to enjoy in case you don’t follow me on Facebook (you should!).
One of my favorite songs of the season is “Christmas in the City” by Mary J. Blige and Angie Martinez from one of those Very Special Christmas albums. It has a really relaxed sound, and I think it’s the perfect soundtrack to these pictures.
Taking these pictures has reminded me how lucky I am to live near (I’m from the suburbs, so I won’t say I’m actually from Chicago) such a beautiful city. Enjoy the song and pictures, and have a great holiday!
