Streaking Down The River Of Light

Streaking Down The River Of Light

This was taken while I was in Chicago. There are tour boats going up and the Chicago River doing tours that finish in Lake Michigan and then they return to their docks. Most are based at Michigan Avenue. I shot this while I was walking towards Lake Michigan and I had 3 boats coming towards me. With it being night and the lens wide open it was still a 4 second exposure. For editing I had to do a composite…

Industrial Noir

Industrial Noir

Something a bit different than my normal landscape stuff I have been shooting. It’s a wee bit darker and not just because it’s in monochrome. The first two images are the second level of the Michigan Avenue Bridge. I liked how the light played off the steel beams and the rivets. Both images show what’s on the other side. It gives the perception of claustrophobia with all these steel around you but you can see an open space in the…

Twinkles In The Night

Twinkles In The Night

This is another from Chicago. I was shooting along the river walk along the Chicago River. I published the other side of this a few weeks ago. This is is slightly different as you get more of the city with its buildings behind the bridge giving it a different perspective. I still like night shots and night photography. While you lose some details the lights in the image are so much brighter and twinkle like stars. It gives an otherwise…

Up The Chicago River

Up The Chicago River

I shot this one night while wandering down the Chicago River Walk towards Lake Michigan. In fact, I was walking back to the hotel after shooting for several hours. I wish I had more time to shoot in Chicago but still the images I got are good. Cityscapes like this can be a bit of pain. The image itself was darker to begin with even with me bumping the ISO in the camera to keep exposure times down. I liked…

Silver And Gold

Silver And Gold

This is one of the many bridges over the Chicago River in Chicago. I was on the third level or River Walk as I think it’s called when I took the image. With the light reflections on the water the title came to me while I was editing. I wanted to bring out the details of the bridge while keeping the water looking good. So did some dodging and burning to various areas to bring it all out. Then I…

Stroll Down Michigan Avenue

Stroll Down Michigan Avenue

I shot these as I had to walk to the Apple Store on Michigan Avenue in Chicago. I bought another power adapter for my laptop and never checked it to see if it fit. So when I landed and set up my machine I discovered I didn’t have one that fit. I figured since I was having to take a walk down I might as well bring a camera with me. So I grabbed my Sony RX100M3 and off I…
