Today. I was going to cut my run short when I saw some unreal clouds settling behind the Willis Tower. I have never seen a cloud like this one in the city and I knew it would make for a great picture. This was taken from the Division st. bridge near the Division and Halsted intersection. Unfortunately, Division is a busy street and I was getting a ton of tripod shake so this took me forever to get a good shot, but it just so happened that the best one I got was as these kayakers were passing underneath.

I usually don't promote anything commercial on this blog... actually I usually don't promote anything. But, Justin Kern from the TheWindyPixel.com is running an HDR workshop on June 12th, and June 19th here in Chicago. The workshop is an all day event, and will cover not only composition, and actually taking pictures, but after all the good light is gone, he will go through his workflow for post processing! I am extremely excited about this because Justin is one of my favorite photographers and I have already learned a ton from him, so I can only imagine how much more I will learn from this workshop.

Droid HDR Wallpapers

Here are a few of my images cropped for the Motorola Droid. Enjoy these free of charge. Also, check out my iPhone Wallpaper Collection. I was hoping that I could make a collection dedicated to all Android phones. Unfortunately each phone running Android really has it's own resolution. So to the smaller crowd with Droids (like me), enjoy these, and let me know if there is an image on the blog that you would like cropped for the Droid not listed here.

Today. As promised, another shot from the country. This is from inside a small shed that we found next to a tractor that we pulled over to take a picture of. Notice the bullet holes in the window? After taking this shot, I half expected that I would go back home and load the pictures on my computer only to find a dead body had mysteriously made it into the shot. I'm pretty sure there is a Goosebumps book about that, but if not you have my permission to write your own story about that. I would suggest that the photographer would then call the authorities who would search the scene and the body would be missing. Then the photographer would get a mysterious phone call from the killer. Actually this sounds better as a movie, but you would need a badass like Colin Farrell or Johnny Depp to play me. I have been thinking about this for way too long now, 8 hours on the road in the country will do that to you.
