Chicago Skyline

Chicago Skyline

Shot this in Chicago last year when I visited the Navy Pier. I can’t tell you what part of Chicago this is since I don’t know the city that well but rest assured, it is Chicago. There is something cool about a cityscape. You get all sorts of cool lights going on in the image. It helps when the sky cooperates and you get some nice light to make everything look good. It was taken at the phase between golden hour…

Masts As Tall As Buildings

Masts As Tall As Buildings

This image has driven me nuts since I shot it last year. There were multiple technical issues with it that I could not overcome. Throw in the weird angle and my obsession because I liked it made me work on it till I got it right. That and I was feeling masochistic. The image was taken at the Navy Pier in Chicago. I have no idea what the boat is called but I just liked the masts of the boat…

Night Bean

Night Bean

It should be pointed out that I took many a photo of the “bean” in Millennium Park in Chicago. I used to feel bad about about publishing images that are similar but each one is different. Light changes, mood changes when editing and so on. Spread them out and you get a lot of usable images that would otherwise never see the light of day. I edited this photo nearly a month ago. Sometimes I do edits when the mood…

Path To Modernity

Path To Modernity

Took this image in Chicago last year. Was my last night in Chicago before I flew out to Thailand for a brief holiday. I wanted to go to Millennium Park and photograph the bean statue that is big draw in the park. I had seen stuff from Ming Thein and was only a few blocks away. My schedule didn’t mesh until the final night. The problem was it was pissing down rain but it was a typical Summer thunderstorm. There…

Architectural Travels – Part 3

Architectural Travels – Part 3

I am almost done with the Architectural Travels series. I just have one more set to publish. These images were shot in Chicago, Illinois, Thailand, and Panama. The bulk split between Chicago and Panama. When I started this series out I never had the intention of splitting it into so many categories. It just worked out that way when I started to edit the images. I could see how some images were more similar to others so it just made…

Architectural Travels – Part 2

Architectural Travels – Part 2

I indicated in part 1 of this series that I was going to go through and clear out all my architectural photos I have taken over my travels. I return with part 2 which I am calling reflections. These images were taken in Panama City, Panama and Chicago. There are no Thailand shots simply because where I am in Thailand doesn’t do large glass buildings. They are in Bangkok if you are interested but I’m not biggest fan of the…

Architectural Travels – Part One

Architectural Travels – Part One

I rarely have time to do series of images. This is mainly due to the fact that editing takes considerable amount of time. With me having some time off I went ahead and completed a series I have had in mind for some time, all the architectural shots I have taken over the course the last year or so and publish them in cohesive sets. I broke up all the images into what I consider sets of similar characteristics. This…

World Within A World

World Within A World

This the Bean thing in Chicago. It’s really called Cloud Gate and it’s located in Millennium Park in downtown. If you are near Michigan Ave and Wacker Ave. it’s an easy walk. I have published a similar image before. I really did this because I wanted to play with HDR and test Aurora 2017 and doing layers with it. So not my finest work in life but it did what I needed. I have had Aurora 2017 for some time….

Sunset Behind Chicago

Sunset Behind Chicago

More from the Chicago archives. This was more of a B roll type image but I really liked how the sun was setting behind the Chicago skyline and the way the weird cloud was over the sky. The walkway isn’t in the most ideal location but I was hampered by a fence that didn’t allow me to place the tripod exactly where I wanted. Hopefully the water will draw your eye more than the walkway. If not then ignore it…

Don’t Cross The Streams

Don’t Cross The Streams

It seems I have been obsessed with movie titles or lines for post titles lately. This one came from Ghostbusters. If you have never seen the original or the remake go watch. It will make sense. This is the Navy Pier from across Lake Michigan. You can see the skywheel that I have previously published images of before. I was all the way down the Chicago River Walk near some marina and I took this image. With the image being…
