I have driven past this church many times thinking that I needed to photograph it one of these days. Well finally that day came early last week, and I got this shot on one of my early morning bike rides.

I went for an early morning bike ride up north in the Lincoln Park neighborhood this morning. On my way back, the colors from this college sports shop caught my eye, and I grabbed a few shots before heading home.
I am very excited to announce that after more than 3 years of maintaining this blog, I have decided to make an effort at selling limited-edition prints of my photographs. While photography for me will always be something that I do simply because I enjoy doing it, I am hoping that selling my work will provide an additional source of motivation, and will fund bigger and better equipment. All profits from print sales will be used to purchase photography equipment, so please consider purchasing a print as a way of supporting my passion.
Prints and other merchandise can be purchased at The exclusive ShutterRunner store hosted by SmugMug.
Here are a few samples of prints:
I decided to go for another early morning bike ride today, and grabbed this shot right before the sun came up. This picture was taken at the North Pond Nature Sanctuary in the Lincoln Park Zoo.
Today's shot is yet another from Mary Bartelme Park. This will be the last shot of the park (for at least a while). I wonder if I would be better off trying to spread out my shoot so as to not make the blog so repetitive... In the meantime, enjoy one more shot of these awesome sculptures.
Today's shot is another angle from the very photogenic and reflective sculptures at Mary Bartelme Park. This one was taken a little bit later in the morning just as the sun was starting to come up.
Today's picture is one from Mary Bartelme Park also known as Adams-Sangamon park. Special thanks goes out to Brian on this one who even joined me at 6am to make sure I got the shot.
Today's shot is another one from one of the many photogenic churches just west of the highway in downtown Chicago. This is St. Stanislaus Kostka Parish.
I have a very vivid memory of the first HDR image that I produced that I really liked. It was taken more than 3 years ago of Holy Trinity Polish Mission Church. After taking this shot, I promised myself that I would return with a wide angle lens. Sure enough, I did yesterday.

This past weekend, I woke up bright and early for my first ever photography bike ride with my buddy, Cris. While it was a bit more overcast than we would have liked, I think the bike offers me a way to carry my equipment in the city, travel a decent distance, and not have to worry about parking anywhere. Hopefully the winter weather holds off a little bit longer so that I can get a few more of these in this year.
This shot was taken at Northerly Island, just south of the Shedd aquarium near the new prairie lands.
