While cruising through the streets of Chicago with Jon for the first time this past June, I had the fortune of finding an amazing location I thought to be perfect to shoot my Indian-esque Hippie outfit. Devon Avenue is basically one huge street devoted to anything and everything Indian. The colors, the gaudy ads and cell tech stores. It was such a new experience for me, never actually having left Florida except a handful of times to some states in the south, Devon was everything I knew I wanted the setting of my shoot to have. Though, the sun was extremely bright and every person in that area was either staring or intentionally trying to interrupt the shot, I still had an incredible time posing in the crowds of little India.
Seeing Chicago was incredible. The architecture, the people, the millions of non chained restaurants, mom-and-pop shops and bodegas. I never thought that I would want to move away from the warmest state in the US but I feel I may have finally found my aspired northern home. So, I’ve decided to post a couple of pics throughout my adventure in the Windy City.
