Not the Yellow Brick Road by taffy

Not the Yellow Brick Road

We finally had a bright sunny day so even with the frigid temperature, it was great to be outside with my camera. This was taking at one end of the Washington Blvd overpass looking east to Chicago's downtown business district.
I know I can't only do b&w for the month so will use my extras for the occasional color image: https://365project.org/taffy/the-also-ran-ph/2017-02-02
Fantastic picture and perspective.

Lovely image! Makes me realize the only way I could "happily" do B&W for a month would be to have a subject like "shadows". I enjoy seeing what others do, but I just can't do it much...

@jamibann That's a great description -- fits the situation/scene well, I think!
@vignouse Haha -- it was around lunchtime, but not an area where folks would be walking during that time of day as there's not much in the way of offices or shops on either side (the bridge is over the main highway that basically is the western edge of the city). I'm walking toward the commuter train station in fact.

Super shadows shot. I wonder if designers take the potential shadows into consideration when creating features like this.
