Mission Organization Chapter II

Remember, I am in the process of organizing my photos. Many of my photos don't mean anything to anyone but me and they really don't hold any sentimental value for me either. They were just the result of being in a place where I had the opportunity to take some nice pictures. Here is the second installment of Mission Organization.
In 1999 I was in Chicago on business. Again, I had a day to myself. If you're an architect and you're in Chicago, you must make a side trip to Oak Park and tour the home of Frank Lloyd Wright. It's a rule. There are several other homes within a few blocks of the Wright home that he also designed. Here are a few photos from that excursion. These were taken with a 35mm film camera and later converted to digital media, so they're not the best quality.

This photo has nothing to do with Frank Lloyd Wright, but it has everything to do with Chicago. Soldier Field might be the single most recognizable landmark in the city.

The two photos above are of the Frank Lloyd Wright residence and studio. The remainder are of homes in Oak Park that were designed by Wright.

Great snaps! Wright is one of the more unusual and interesting biographies I've ever come across and although not an architect, I'd still make the pilgrimage! Thanks for taking me there in pixels... and the shot of Soldier Field which, oddly enough, I've never seen before from the outside... don't ask... When I think Chi-Town, I think "Sears Tower", "Board of Trade", and "Navy Pier" mostly...

I do not know if this a Creative Photography post? But I will pick the Wright photo post lol. That is so cool I just watch a Documentary of Frank Wright awesome, Architect. That is so cool that you have you photos of his work.

I love his straight lines in his archetecture!
He does have an interesting biography for sure. For some reason I have always been interested in his creative works

What a delight to behold Wright's genius in Oak Park and the baseball field, Soldier Field! Thanks for sharing those photos, Driller! :)
