A drizzly day in Chicago's Wicker Park neighborhood is always a great photo opportunity. While on a photo walk with a fellow photographer, I looked down this gangway and saw this visual feast. I decided to use the 85mm lens wide open because it gave just enough reach without compressing the scene while lending an interesting depth of field--thereby preserving the jumbled feel that caught my eye.
