Today's shot is one from Times Square in Manhattan at Dawn. It is rare to see Times Square this empty, as this shot was taken around 6am on a Tuesday morning.
This is the Brooklyn Bridge in New York during sunrise. I just got back from a 3 day work trip in Manhattan, and was able to get a couple of photo shoots in while I was there. The trip was extremely exhausting and felt non-stop, having only a couple of waking hours in the hotel room. This was my first time in New York city though, and I wasn't going to pass the opportunity to get a couple of photo shoots in before leaving. This particular morning did not disappoint and the few clouds in the sky made for awesome lighting during sunrise.
A long distance shot of the Field Museum.
The wonderful ride that his been Chicago weather for the past five or so months is finally coming to an end. In addition to a beautiful summer, we've had a remarkably warm and dry fall. In fact, the day before I took this shot the weather had got up into the seventies, however, on the morning that I took the shot, just a day later, I found myself getting pummeled with hail and snow. The fall colors won't be around for long, and I managed to capture the end of them here at North Ave. Beach.
Today's post is yet another bridge photo from Columbus. I was really drawn to this area when searching photos of Columbus, and I was not disappointed.
It took some digging to discover the name of this statue which is "Habakuk" by Ewerdt Hilgemann and is a tribute to Max Ernst. Googling "crumpled statue near lake shore drive" didn't return many results, however, I did discover the search by map feature on the Chicago Park District Website, where I was able to figure it out.
Here is a view of downtown Columbus from the Main Street Bridge. We were very lucky to have minimal wind early this morning, and the still water made for almost perfect reflections.
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:
