This shot definitely has a 'cool' feel to it. I really like the contrast of the violet sky and amber light coming from the inside of the building. I'd be lying if I said I had considered this when setting up for the shot, but sometimes you just get lucky.
Here is an older shot from 18th street of the Skyline and Ping Tom park in Chinatown. This shot was taken in early October.
I went on a parking garage expedition the other morning, trying to find some unique perspectives of the city. I came across this excellent view of the Willis (or Sears) Tower.
I went out for a winter bike ride the other morning and it was cold! Despite the tough weather, I layered up and was able to get a photo of the fresh powder near the lake shore path by Castaways.
This is the Chicago Skyline as seen from the Columbus Drive bridge over the Chicago River. This photo is part of my "How it was Made" series, and you can follow along below to see both how the photo was composed, and also the post processing techniques that were used to create the image.
I tried really hard to get as much of the parking sign reflecting in the puddle as I could. I wish my tripod allowed me to get even lower than it does, unfortunately this was the best I could do. With my snowpants on, I had no problem kneeling on the ground and staying dry. This neighborhood, somewhere in between River North and Streeterville, has a scary feel to it. Not a place I would feel really safe walking in the middle of the night alone.
Another throwback to my 2014 trip to Southern Iceland
Today's shot is another angle of the Manhattan Bridge. When I searched flickr for interesting photos of New York, I was immediately drawn to some that I discovered of this bridge. Knowing that the Brooklyn Bridge is generally more renowned, I was happy to discover that they were right next to each other and I was able to get photos of both during the same morning.
This is the Brooklyn Ice Cream Factory near the Brooklyn Bridge in Brooklyn, NY.
Here is Hearst Tower, one of the more interesting looking skyscrapers in Manhattan.
