Preparing for the Super Bowl in Jackson Square February 01, 2013 | New Orleans, LA

I was fortunate enough to be able to travel to New Orleans, the site of this Sunday's Super Bowl, this past weekend. While we weren't lucky enough to stay for the game, the city was preparing for the events to come the following week, and Jackson Square, pictured here, was ready to go fo the game. We saw a few different celebrities walking the streets. I only wish we could have stayed for the game. Go Ravens!

Anchor's On Sunrise January 22, 2013 | Chicago, IL

Every morning I go to post a new picture I have to put something in the title bar, and it has lately been the toughest part about putting up a new photo.

This shot was taken a couple weeks back on an early morning bike ride. This is the famous anchor at the far east side of Navy Pier. I would like to get back on the bike some time this week, but with the recent sub-zero temperatures, that isn't looking very likely.

Skyline on Lake Michigan January 16, 2013 | Chicago, IL

During last week's sunrise-bike ride to Navy Pier I noticed that Lake Michigan was calmer than usual, making for a rare opportunity to photograph the skyline reflected in the water. Capturing it, however, was easier said than done as I had to go down to the area located specifically for docking ships to set up my tripod. Still, not far enough away to remove the pier from the site of my camera, I leaned the tripod towards the water risking that a even the slightest breeze would inevitably push not just me but also my precious camera into the cold sea.

In the end, it was all worth it for this shot.

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.
