The bean was so much fun. We took way too many photos. Across from Milennium park is the Chicago Cultural Center. They had art exhibits for free! Currently they are showing Chicago and the Diana which was a whole bunch of Diana contact sheets that were really fascinating. We want to try it out ourselves. Also on exhibit was a show called Finding Vivian Maier. Oh. My. Goodness. Her photos were incredible....AND she took them all with her little rolleiflex like ours! Needless to say, we were incredibly inspired. Her photographs were funny, heartbreaking and beautiful. I wish I could see them again.
More on Chicago tomorrow. Today I have my first eye appointment. I've never had a real eye exam before and I'm a bit nervous.
I have thought my camera was broken since last November. All of my photos looked blurry in the camera, but when I'd develop/upload them, everything was in focus. I figured it was just my viewfinder having trouble. A couple weeks ago, I had something that was irritating my right eye, so I used my left eye to photograph.....it was clear as a bell! Can you believe that? I never even thought the problem could be my eyes. Silly me.
