I wish I could say that I was returning here physically, but instead I loaded some of my old raw photos from my 2014 trip to Iceland. Looking at these old photos has given me the travel bug, and I'm hoping that 2017 will bring me some new adventures.
Another shot from a quiet Wells Street taken around 6am this Saturday morning. While there was almost no traffic this particular morning, I did have to set up the shot in the middle of the street. It's a little bit scary doing this, but I was extremely careful, and had all the settings and tripod positioning in place so that all that I had to do when I stepped into the street was set up my composition and hit the shutter button.
Today's picture was taken on Wells Street near Lake Street underneath the 'L' tracks. If you grew up playing Nintendo 64 like me, you might recognize this scene from the game Cruisin' USA, pictured below:
I was going to name this photo "Under the Bridge", but I realized that I already have a photo with that name. This was taken from under the Rich Street Bridge in downtown Columbus, Ohio.
Today's post is a tribute to the Chicago Lakefront Trail, upon which I've run, walked, and cycled hundreds of miles over. Don't worry, this was taken during a very low traffic evening, and I wasn't blocking any runners with my tripod.
Today's shot is one that I took on the run through the loop shortly after sunset. I've been trying to be a little more spontaneous with my photography, trying to go out when the lighting and weather are interesting, as opposed to when it is convenient with my schedule. Hopefully I can keep this up.
Today's shot is one from Museum Campus, a favorite spot of mine lately. The foreground is composed of light graffiti from Lake Shore Drive contrasting with the still lights of the Chicago skyline.
It's been a while since i've posted a photo that wasn't taken in Chicago. While Columbus isn't the most glamorous city in the world, or even the good ole U.S. of A., I did manage to get up early for some shooting while in Columbus for a soccer game. Shoutout to my brother, Tyler, who woke up bright and early with me after a long day of travel and soccer.
This shot was taken from the Lincoln Park Passarelle. While I have shot here several times, I think this is my first "blog worthy" shot shooting the Lake Shore Drive traffic. I shot here for a good ten minutes before heading to a different location. I then realized that I had been shooting at 5000 ISO. How I didn't realize my shutter speeds were way too slow to be getting as much light as I was getting is beyond me, but I had to then come back to make sure that I got the shot at a lower ISO.
Today's shot is from my Guide to Composition video, it is the Chevron statue along Chicago's Lakefront. The artist, John Henry, had originally put this sculpture on his lawn, and received a number of complaints from neighbors before it was finally moved to its permanent home along the lake. Personally, I think it's a pretty cool statue and looks good in its new spot.
