For this downtown Chicago photo walk, we will carpool from Indianapolis to Ogden Dunes, IN (just a few miles East of I-65 near Portage IN), then take the South Shore commuter train into Millennium Park (the "Bean") in downtown Chicago. From there we'll causally walk around downtown Chicago, taking pictures, and eventually end up at the Harold Washington Public Library to see the Vivian Maier Photo Exhibit. All are welcome to carpool up and back with us to share travel expenses. You're welcome to walk with us, or go off and do your own thing! We'll probably break into smaller walking groups if we have a large group. We'll chip in to share driving costs, and the South Shore commuter train to/from Millennium Station costs $7.50 each way.
