Nintendo in Chicago

posted in: Blog, Chicago | 1

I am a product of the the late 80’s/ early 90’s which means I am a huge Nintendo fan. I grew up with the NES and still have my original Legend of Zelda cartridge (the best game ever!). However, despite owning the original Pokemon yellow Gameboy game, I was never a huge fan of the series.

Flash forward 20 years where all of my friends who are now in their early thirties are obsessed with playing Pok√©mon Go on their phones and I just can’t relate. I have no interest in walking around trying to capture imaginary monsters, but it go me thinking that I wouldn’t mind running into some other Nintendo characters around Chicago.

Imagine strolling through Wicker Park and coming across Link, or watching Mario and his buddies race their karts under the L and around the Loop. I’d just about lose it if I came across Mega Man battling Protoman after coming off my Metra in Union Station. This inspired me to create this small photo series.

So I started practicing how to do that and made a little 4 photo series. You can read about that project and see the photos here. […]
