Café Brauer Entrance

date March 27, 2017 location Chicago, IL comments 0 Comments

I actually took a very similar shot to this several weeks ago only to find that my camera lens was so covered in dust that it was unfixable (my fault for not zooming in after I thought I had it captured). I came back and had similar lighting and got the same long exposure style shot I was going for. This is Café Brauer at the Lincoln Park Zoo.

La Jolla Sea Lions

date February 23, 2017 location La Jolla, CA comments 0 Comments

While visiting Los Angeles this past weekend, we made a day trip to San Diego and a stop here at La Jolla Beach where we spotted these famous sea lions. It was a pleasant surprise for us as we made the stop looking for some good landscape photo opps at sunset. We saw a large group of people surrounding this area and our first guess was that they were watching the surfers, so you can imagine our surprise when we walked up to see these sea lions who seemed comfortable with humans just a couple of feet away.

Iceland Waterfalls

date February 10, 2017 location Iceland comments 0 Comments

While I haven't taken any major trips in some time, it has been fun going through my old Iceland pictures. When I first got back from my trip I must have glossed over this one, but looking back it really captures what Iceland was like with the waterfalls, blue skies, mountain ranges and of course waterfalls.

I-290 Through the Fence

After a few failed attempts at finding a good angle of the Chicago sunrise, I crossed over Morgan Street on my way to a UIC parking garage when I found a hole in the fence. This is the Eisenhower expressway from behind a chain link fence.

Today's shot is a long exposure taken from UIC. I used an ND filter and high f-stop to achieve about a 90 second exposure just before sunrise.
