Photography 101, Day 2: Street Scene

Today’s Assignment

“Capture an establishing shot of a street scene in your neighborhood — or someplace new.

On this assignment date, Hubby and I were delayed at O’Hare Airport in Chicago for more than ten hours waiting for a connecting flight to Orlando.

This photo was “someplace new” for me.  While, I enjoyed talking with Hubby, people watching and shooting photos on my iPhone, I was happy to end my stay at this overwhelmingly large and beautiful airport.

During this final season life, I am going on a journey to define "ME." Opening up and going outside of my comfort zone to redefine ME.. Exploring and pursuing new interests that will lead to personal happiness, serenity, and tranquility. In undertaking this mission, overcoming the FEAR is my greatest challenge. Fear has played a large role in my life, but I overcame the FEAR of breast cancer, chronic pain associated with Rheumatoid Arthritis and Fibromyalgia, Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease, and Sleep Apnea. My new mantra: FEAR has two meanings: "(1) Forget Everything And Run, or (2) Face Everything and Rise. The Choice is Mine." Blogging here I come ready or not!!!

  1. I bet you are happy to be home!!!

    ( If you include photo101-all one word- in the tag list for each of your Photography 101 posts, the other students will be able to find it.)


    1. In 1960, I flew out of O’Hare when it was still under construction. For the past 30 year, when traveling I always tried to avoid O’Hare because of its size. But, we had no option on this trip; and I was surprise the airport is more like a grand shopping mall. And, I love window shopping.


  2. I’ve been to O’Hare a couple of times…I’ve been to Atlanta airport too, that airport is so big..or maybe it was O’Hare, but one of these airports was so big I thought we would never reach the terminal to catch the plane, I don’ fly anymore, I don’t think I want to fly anymore.


    1. For the past thirty years, we avoided going through the Chicago Airport too many people and too, too large. But, a death in the family necessitated getting to our destination as quickly as possible and we were left with no other option but Chicago. Scheduled on a flight to Wisconsin for Thanksgiving — but booked a direct one.
