Chicago, Illinois.

This week we are in North Carolina visiting family and gathering some more material in our Journeys. To get to Raleigh-Durham, we traveled through Chicago’s giant O’Hare airport. Having left Fargo before any restaurants were open for breakfast, we’d make do with airplane coffee and a cookie. A three-hour layover in Chi-town left us with plenty of time to seek out a breakfast/brunch. We found a food court in Terminal C right near our departure gate so we chowed down on a nice breakfast, albeit basic quality airport food. We sat down in the shadow of these jazz musicians while listening to jazz background music.

About the photo: Captured in the Jazz food court area, the Samsung S7 cell phone came in handy to capture this image. In automatic mode, the camera chose f/1.7, 1/120 sec., ISO-100. Uploaded in a high quality format, most browsers will allow you to click on the image to enlarge it for a better view.

I could find the exact date as the flight is in my pilot’s log books, however they are in Fargo and I am in Buckeye for the winter. No metadata is available in the image which was captured just prior to turning toward final approach at Meigs. Continue reading
