Being back in Chicago has been good. Well, in most ways it has been good. In one very prominent way it has been bad, which is to say cold. This has been the worst winter Chicago (and the rest of the country) has seen in years. I had the chance to escape the cold for a few days for a great shoot down in Houston, but the rest of the time we've just been enduring it. On one particularly cold day Sarah and I went down to the edge of Lake Michigan to see what a 92% frozen lake looks like. In a word, beautiful. It almost made the frostbitten ears worth it.
