Special thanks to Julie for getting me access to one of the best views in all of Chicago. This photo was taken from the 25th floor of Tribune Tower. I had so much fun shooting up here and watching the light in the city go from day time to sunset to blue hour and night.
I took this shot during my lunch break just off the terrace of my work building. This is really the first success I've had using 2 ND filters stacked to get a long exposure during the middle of the day. This is a 30 second exposure taken with 2 stacked 3.0 ND filters.
This is my dog Teddy hangin' out at his favorite place in the world, the beach. There is a tunnel that leads to the beach near our house, and as soon as we get to it, Teddy always breaks into a sprint. My theory is that is when he realizes we are going to his favorite place and he gets excited. This photo was one of the rare moments where Teddy was going full speed or digging holes in the sand.

Coming up with names for my photographs is always entertaining. Hope you like this one, another from the early morning trip to Baha'i Temple. I don't want to say for sure that this is the last photo i'll post from that morning, but it very likely may be. I try to keep things as fresh as possible, but I did commit a whole morning to just shooting the grounds of this Temple so it's only fair that I at least post a few photos from it.
I can't believe that in my seven years of photographing Chicago, I have never been to Ping Tom Memorial Park. It is very encouraging, as I have been getting back into photographing the city more, to find places with great views that I haven't been to before. I was very lucky that the night was as calm as it was, and I was able to capture a great reflection of the skyline onto the Chicago River with this shot.
In all my years of photographing Chicago, I'm surprised I've never taken a photograph here before. It's probably because the slight off-symmetry of this ceiling makes it impossible to get an angle I was happy with. Anyways, with little clouds in the sky, I did my best to capture something interesting out of this one.
This shot is for Ryan who requested a photo of Wrigley Field in honor of the Cubbies who will be taking on the Dodgers tonight in the opening game of the NLCS. Let's Go Cubs!!!
Today's photo was taken from atop the UIC parking garage at Halsted and Maxwell Street. This is a nice little spot with a clear view of downtown that I discovered while running in the area. It was one of those days where I had set out to photograph for just a short while but the light got better and better as time passed, and I ended up staying out way longer than I had originally anticipated.
Today's shot is another from my sunrise shoot at Baha'i Temple. This building is very photogenic and this will not be my last time shooting here.
I was on my way back from a long run when I took this shot. It had rained pretty hard just a couple of hours earlier, and I was desperately searching for some fresh puddles to find some unique reflections of the city on when I got to the Chicago Theatre. I did a pretty good job of "vignetting-out" the big crowd lined up for this Louis C.K. show, but what made this shot tough was the huge crowds around me and across the street.
