In Pictures: Three weeks in Chicago

Three weeks in Chicago with three women who up until then I’d only spoken to via Skype and email? Sure, why not? We were working on a start-up together and met up to put some plans into overdrive, brainstorm, bond and meet some interesting, enterprising Illinois officials along the way.

Loads of food was consumed, my favourites being the sushi in-house at Fairmont Chicago which acted as our home from home and the deep dish pizzas from Giordano’s. Garrett’s popcorn is a must for anyone travelling through Chicago too, of course! Anyway, on to the photos.

    Gorgeous photos! I have travelled a lot in the States but never been to Chicago – it’s definitely a place on my wish list. The food looks stunning – making me hungry!

      There’s certainly a lot of foodie places to indulge in Nomita! We should plan a blogger’s trip out there and tour them all!

    I absolutely love your photos Tinuke! They really captured the spirit of your trip. I’d love to hear more about your start-up venture – have you written about it?

      Thank you Kate, I’m glad you liked the pics! They were taken before I knew much about my camera so I’m glad some of them were usable!
      I don’t think I’ve written much about it but there’s a decent mention about it in this post here.

    Try to eliminate the use of flashlight. It will improve the quality of your photo. Practice on how to stabilize your hand when taking photo with less light.

    Or if you have to use flashlight, use a diffuser to soften the light.

      Thanks Benny, that’s very useful. I was an ‘auto’ addict during this trip and didn’t make much use of the features of the camera. Hopefully you’ll see a vast improvement in the quality of my photos in the next installment!
