Lonely Lighthouse January 10, 2013 | Chicago, IL

I woke up bright and early this morning and took the bike down to Navy Pier. I was pleasantly surprised by an awesome sunrise that reminded me of the sunrise during a photowalk from a couple of years ago when I took this shot.

Rocky Morning Sunrise December 18, 2012 | Chicago, IL

Clearly I am lacking in creativity when it comes to coming with titles for these posts. Anyway, this shot was taken early morning last week (the same day I snapped yesterday's photo) during a bike ride on Lake Shore Path.

Frozen Sand December 17, 2012 | Chicago, IL

I have really been enjoying the early morning bike rides as of late, and have been able to make it out pretty consistently for a weekly ride. Last week, I rode up north along the lake shore path, and stopped in front of this mound of sand for a shot.

31st Street Harbor December 11, 2012 | Chicago, IL

Bob and I got up bright and early last week to catch some of the best light I have seen this winter season. This was taken at the new and improved 31st Street Harbor on Chicago's south-side lakefront.

Seattle Skyline December 10, 2012 | Seattle, WA

This is a shot of the Seattle Skyline from my trip to the northwest earlier this February. While I usually like to work on fresh photos from recent excursions, I happened to be looking through photos from some of my old trips and was surprised that this one somehow fell through the cracks. This was taken on a rainy evening from Queen Anne Hill.

St. Vincent de Paul Parish December 04, 2012 | Chicago, IL

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.

Campus Gear November 28, 2012 | Chicago, IL

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.

Cyber Monday Extravaganza November 26, 2012 | Chicago, IL

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:

North Pond Nature Sanctuary November 20, 2012 | Chicago, IL

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.

From the Hill at Mary Bartelme November 15, 2012 | Chicago, IL

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.
