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…

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…

Clustered Together

This is another one from Chicago as I clear out the backlog I have. Soon it will be coming to an end as I have tons of new stuff I shot recently If you are a regular you may have noticed the theme changed. I got tired of not having a search button so I tweaked the basic WordPress theme and just went with it. The image is the Chicago skyline from Lake Michigan from the Navy Pier. I just…

Color Wheel

Color Wheel

I am fighting the flu or at least flu like symptoms so going to be brief on this one. I wasn’t feeling the editing and it was a struggle to get through it. This is a sky wheel that is located on the Navy Pier in Chicago. I went for a weird camera angle using my 16-35mm lens and a long exposure to get the effect. Just a note, if you want to shoot at the carnival you have to…

Chicago Lighthouse

Chicago Lighthouse

I shot this off the Navy Pier when I was in Chicago. I’m going to call this a lighthouse but I have no idea if that is the technical term for it. To me it looks like one so I am going to call it a lighthouse. It was really nice to edit photos not being jetlagged or using screens that I’m not used to for the first time in a month. I have my 32″ editing monitor and it…

Spin Me Round

Spin Me Round

I always wanted to take this photography. I saw one similar shot under different light and thought it was cool. So when I saw the swing ride at the Navy Pier in Chicago I knew I was going to shoot it. I should also mention that the amusement park is private property. I know this because I was asked for my permit. Didn’t have one obviously but they were very nice about it. Wasn’t told you can’t take the photos,…

Lighthouse Sunset

Lighthouse Sunset

I shot this one off the Navy Pier in Chicago while I was there. I didn’t see them until I was at the Lake Michigan facing side of the pier and the sun was setting. Would have liked to shoot them again in different light but still happy. For once while editing I didn’t go wild with it. When I started to play with the various plugins to mask the images nothing really added to the image. So I just…
