Many Paths and Passages

Today is THEME DAY. I've never participated before because (1) there was only one theme day I could have participated in since I started this blog and (2) I didn't know the registration process. CityDailyPhoto has made the registration process easier so here is my first Theme Day picture.

February's Theme is Paths and Passages. I selected this photo because it has so many paths and passages in it. There are the obvious streets, in this case Wells and Wacker, which allow passage through the city. There is also the bridge, which allows passage over the Chicago River. The bridge has a sidewalk, providing people a safe path across the bridge without worrying about getting in the way of the vehicles. The Chicago River is the path between Lake Michigan and the Mississippi River (via the Sanitary and Ship Canal, DesPlaines River, and Illinois River). Lastly, there is Lower Wacker Drive, the secret speedy path under the city for intrepid and impatient drivers.

Great choice and beautiful shot. When I was living in Chicago I used to have a great view out my window of the Columbus/Wacker bridge and could see all the traffic on the Chicago River. Great days.

Wonderful image and great to see you've used all the possibilities of paths and passages. Well done. That's some bridge.

Great over view looking down onto a very busy pathway.
