Nothing can take the chill out of the air quite like the warmth of the dazzling city lights during the holiday season. I snapped this photo yesterday, Black Friday, where shoppers were bustling about. It was busy on the Mag Mile.
The message from Michigan Avenue was clear, though never a word was spoken…I heard it in the rustle of shopper’s bags as they brushed by me, the clip-clop of horse’s hoofs as they pulled hansom cabs, the applause of the crowd gathered at the street performance where drummers pounded their plastic containers, and the rapid “beep, beep, beep” of Best Buy’s electronic security system as a customer exited…only to be waved ahead with a smile. It all cried out to me, “Let the Season begin!”
