The words "Road trip USA" have been in my vocabulary since I was just a youngen. Growing up watching movies and t.v. shows where people chuck all their belongings into a car and say farewell to the past and a fine hello to an adventurous future. I always hoped one day I would have the opportunity to go on a road trip in America, and in June this year my mate Jeremy and I flew to Chicago to do just that. Our journey would take us down the great Mississippi River to end up in the other worldly and rocking city of New Orleans via all good spots in between. It was my first time in the US, and landing in Chicago at night was an interesting experience. While walking through the quiet streets with all our camera gear my mind quickly brings up images of all the negative media and violence I have seen on t.v. I tried my best to keep an open mind, but I remained nervous. By daylight everything had changed, the streets were buzzing with activity and positive energy, I couldn't wait to get stuck in and start taking photos of this new land. To be honest I didn't know where to start, the incredible architecture, the fascinating people, the eclectic streets, I shot it all. Now I am stuck with the problem of having so many photos that I want to share. I have decided to divide the images from Chicago into a few different groups.
Here are the streets :)
