#SeeingRedSeries┬áThis part of Chicago's lakeshore park complex is not nearly as frequented by the tourists as Millennium Park and its "bean", but the view of the old part of Michigan Avenue from here is very rewarding. If you are a photographer, very few tourists come this way, so that's a plus. And it's literally just... Continue Reading →

#SeeingRed An infrared shot of the tower clock at the Exelon Plaza, just outside the Chase Tower, my workplace. The clock was an unmistakable reminder that the lunch walk was over and time to get back to the grind... Camera: Canon EOS 20D infrared conversion with LifePixel 590nm filter Lens: Canon 24mm F2.8 STM Aperture:... Continue Reading →

#SeeingRedSeries Alright, this was one of those WTF moments where I had absolutely zero idea what picture I took until I downloaded it. The scene was mediocre, light absolutely awful, and would have looked weak on a regular camera... it's an OK composition, horrible backlighting, bunch of smoke coming from a nearby tavern making everything...

#SeeingRedSeries So many times have I passed this place, but never seen it from across the train station. The Congress Hotel neon sign atop its roof is unmistakable in any photo of Chicago skyline featuring Michigan Ave.

Among the many bridges spanning across Chicago river, the Franklin St / Orleans St bridge is probably my favorite. You may say that they are all the same, and you'd probably be right, but this one is at the bend of the river where it forks out to the southern branch, leading to the IM... Continue Reading →

View of historic part of Michigan Avenue from the Art Institute cat walk above Monroe Street.

Some days are better than others and some days are bad enough to make you see everything in such a negative light that even the existence of naive beauty won't enter your perception. Such as these grey, anonymous, tired buildings on a gloomy day while you're standing across the street inside one of them staring... Continue Reading →

A monochrome of inner courtyard of the Fourth Presbyterian Church of Chicago on Michigan Ave, just across from John Hancock Center (360 Chicago). This place is quiet, with minimal foot traffic, and with clear sky provides interesting lighting no matter what time of day you visit, especially the peristyle facing Michigan Ave is really nice...
