I met with merlinsman (Barry Peterson) the evening during our rendezvous with the great Bryan Peterson (author and photographer) at the Palmer House to go over the itinerary of his workshop that was going on in the next two days. After the meeting with Bryan, Barry and I went for a photo walk at Millennium Park … to take shots of Cloud Gate under the rain.
The guard kept on screaming at us to stay away from The Bean because of lightning flashes.
It’s been Ron’s and my tradition to be on the lakefront during the Independence Day Fireworks. We usually stake real estate right on Lake Shore Drive between Randolph and Monroe Sts. as they block LSD during the show. This year, we invited some members of the Chicago Flickr Meetup Club to join us.
