The Lonliness Of The Blue Line

On The Blue Line 2

Images from the Chicago Transit Authority Blue Line from Logan Square to O'Hare Airport. Even in the huge city it is easy to be alone.

And if that isn't isolated enough, have a look at the laundromat on Diversey Avenue, around the corner from my son's home.

Fab shots Bob, love the b&w's.sometimes I think the expression 'man is an island' applies very aptly to many a lost soul in the city oui!

The second shot is my favourite but the whole series is brilliant! Well done, Bob.

Oh gosh, those EL pictures bring back memories. And, I'm going to Chicago for a weekend in two weeks so I think I'll be using that line once again when I arrive. Congrats to your son. Fantastic achievement!

Really nice shots!!! Black and white gives it such a vintage look...with that 30's "modern" look!!!

The b&w enhances the sense of isolation you are capturing.
