There’s this quiet spot on Michigan Avenue that I love to go to. This courtyard at Fourth Presbyterian Church is such a gem. Inside the church is so lovely too. It’s often overlooked by tourists and if you sit down for a minute you can see so many people rushing by, going to and from the stores or taking pictures of the Hancock building.
This month I focused on taking a self portrait in a place special to me. I would go here when I just needed some time to think and get away from the busyness of city life.
This self portrait was actually taken on my iPhone. I used a small tripod made for phones and small cameras (find it on amazon here) and a camera timer (there a many apps for this but I use this one). The tripod is small enough it fits in my large wristlet.
