Description

Chicago Olympics 2016 bid poster IX

While shooting this bicycle Imagine ad in the bus shelter, a 66 Chicago Avenue CTA bus pulled right up. What timing! I love how the word "Chicago" on the bus fits right in. Normally, I wouldn't shoot the poster from this with the glass blocking the ad, but it was the angle needed to get the bus into the frame. In a way it's kinda cool to get that different angle.

Thanks to the bus driver for sitting there long enough to grab the exposures for this image. Granted, I don't think the bus driver was sitting there purposefully for me, but I like to think that was the case.

About the posters:

Chicago is making a bid to host the Olympics in 2016. Posters, flags, advertisements went up in the Loop area of downtown Chicago for the International Olympic Committee visit to evaluate Chicago's venues and plans for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games. The posters say, "Imagine."
