It took me awhile to get just the right framing with so many elements to consider: the arches, brickwork, columns...And to not capture any people walking by this busy CTA stop. Initially, I had done selective coloring in the final result to draw attention to the busy pattern of movies for sale, but realized it worked equally as well in full color. As a photographer, I also, like the lone light on the left and riveted beams in the upper right corners. A week after I took this image, Taggers came and spray painted the word, "CUBA" all over the columns. That would have made a completely different picture.
Everything you see no longer exists due to the recent renovations.
