"The camera makes everyone a tourist in other people's reality, and eventually in one's own." -- Susan Sontag
After four hours of staring at the computer screen, it was time to take a break. I left the Cultural Center and headed over to Millennium Park.
I wasn't the only one out to take a stroll. There was the adorable couple who had just gotten married at City Hall. Walk a few steps, smooch, walk a few more steps, smooch again. Giggle in between. The seriousness of the uniform contrasted nicely with the veil and flip flops.
I normally don't like taking photographs. The camera always makes me feel self conscious, but for some reason, a camera phone gives me license to spy, or in this case, play the happy tourist.
Look carefully. Dead center. The diagonal line of sunshine is pointing straight at me. That's right. That speck of orange is me.
And of course, I had to go play in the water.
