The Windy City In Reflection

April 26th, 2010 | 2 Comments | Posted in Life, Photography, Sonny_B

[tweetmeme]My stay in Chicago was short but sweet. I only had about 30 hours of time in the city, but I enjoyed myself. Upon arriving, I was able to eat at White Castle and tour though the neighborhood. It’s always interesting going though different hoods of different cities. In California majority of the houses are made from wood, but in Chicago you find majority of the housing being constructed from brick.

After cruising though the neighborhood and stopping at few locations, it was time to go visit the family and enjoy some good food. After enjoying the festivities and getting some rest, it was already time for me to return back to Cali.

It was my second visit to Chi-city, but I still haven’t been there long enough to build a Chi-city state of mind. Hopefully on my next visit, I’ll be able to spend more time enjoying the city.

One Love,

3rd Largest City in The U.S.

April 17th, 2010 | No Comments | Posted in Life, Sonny_B

[tweetmeme]I’ll be spending this weekend in the 3rd largest city in the U.S., Chicago, IL. I’ll be going on a 24-hour trip to visit some family. While I am there I hope to get some inspiration. New terrain = new inspiration.

Chicago is known for many things including architecture, music, and deep dish pizza.
Musically, Chicago is known for Opera, Chicago Blues, Chicago S0ul, Jazz, gospel, and house music. So with that being said, I hope to get some inspiration from that alone.

Maybe I’ll see Common rolling though the streets saying “Wassup” to everyone like he did in the “The People” music video. (Yeah, right…). More »
