This colorful snapshot, by Flickr’s katherine of chicago is perfectly bright and cheery—with just the perfect amount of surreal—for this not-yet-spring day in March.

The unique shot of the Merchandize Mart El platform is part of a set in her account called “THIS is Chicago,” which has everything from the Eye Can See Indian to abandoned furniture in cramped Chicago alleyways. Nearly 600 awesome photos that only a native Chicagoan would capture. Check them out here.
