Clearing through the fog – The Bean (Cloud Gate)

I don’t know why I’m so drawn towards this enormous sculpture.  Each time I go there I try to take a shot that is better than the last.  Unfortunately, this visit did not cooperate like I hoped.  I still think most would approve? Leica S ISO 100 f11 1/4 30-90mm vario-elmar-s @44mm pano

When we reached Taggart Lake for the beautiful sunrise there was not a cloud in the sky.  We were there for about 30 minutes and I noticed all the clouds moving in.  We waited just long enough to capture this. Leica S ISO 200 f11 1/45 30-90mm vario-elmar-s @ 30mm – pano

Once I took my initial shot using my 30-90mm lens I decided to attempt a panoramic series.  My shot from yesterday was taken only inches off the ground.  This shot was just the opposite.  I brought along a tripod that allows me to shoot seven to seven and half feet off the ground (I’m not […]

The Windy City

Over the next few weeks you will see a lot of pictures I took in Chicago.  We always enjoy spending time there and is probably my favorite city to visit. One morning, I drove to Alder’s Planetarium.  The planetarium is a great place to capture pictures of the city.  I shot a variety of pictures […]
