We drove to Chicago from Bloomington a couple of days after Christmas. There were some matters to attend to at the Indian Consulate which is located in the NBC tower complex, and I was handing out outside with Sunayana waiting for Rama to come out. I’d tried going in, but it was crowded as usual, and Sunny was a little fussy. Anyway, I ended up walking up and down the plaza with her, keeping her entertained.
We were traveling light, so I only had the black Olympus Trip 35 with me in the minivan. The shadows were already growing long, even though it was only 2 pm in the afternoon. I took the opportunity to take a few shots of the buildings surrounding the NBC plaza, since I wouldn’t have time for anything else before the sun went down. I was surprised that the 40mm lens on the Trip 35 managed to capture almost the whole tower from just across the street.
