Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

One of my biggest regrets to this point is that I have not done a lot of traveling.  Maureen and I have been making plans to change that.  It wont be a quick plan, but it does include trips to Paris and Germany over the next few years, as well as a return trip to Ireland this December.  But foreign does not need to mean a foreign country. In a large city like Chicago, foreign can be as close as the next neighborhood over.  In my case, it is just a few blocks north of where I work.

Welcome to Chinatown.

My intention when I took my camera into Chinatown yesterday, was to do a black and white collection of the main street, but as I got to the entrance to the main street on Wentworth, the batteries in my camera died.  These are the only two shots I was able to get.

I had left my case with the extra batteries in the car, and by the time I walked back to retrieve them I decided this adventure would wait for another day. Black and White Chinatown will be coming soon.

  1. I’ve done the same with not taking the extra batteries or memory cards too. It’s easy to forget. Still you got two good pictures to share at least. I love local exploring – see new things without having to stay in a hotel.

  4. Great photos for Foreign. Have fun on your up coming trips 🙂

  5. Nice! Don’t you just love China towns? Don’t you just love the huge baskets and piles of dried whatevers and the bright colourful little bits and bobs? I do.

  8. So near and yet so far….you’re right,sometimes we’re strangers in our own hometown.

  9. One of my favorite places to shoot is San Francisco’s China Town – I’m not sure how big Chicago’s is, but the side streets always make for the best photo opportunities, a bit away from the touristy stuff
