Street Photography Group Holds ‘Alley Walk’ Downtown

CHICAGO (CBS) — If you walk through the Loop on a Sunday, you might see a group of people taking pictures – a lot of pictures.

We saw them on Madison – the 100 block of West Madison. An overcast day.

“What we’re doing here in front of St. Peter’s is, there’s a couple of puddles that usually form here on the street that usually make for some nice artistic photographs of the relief of Jesus in front of the building.”

Chuck Jines is the leader of the Chicago Street Photography Group.

“Today is an alley walk that I do. This is the third one. There are several alleys in the downtown area here that are absolutely fabulous on sunny days for getting great photographs of the city.’

WBBM: On sunny days…

“Today was kind of a bummer. The sun isn’t out.”

But 71-year-old Bob Wilson of Chicago says he got some good shots.

“I’ve been taking pictures of the counterweights on fire escapes. And I got a couple of good ones of those.”
