Alright! So, I've recently switched from Mac to Windows 10 and with that came a need to revise what apps I would use going forward. My primary DAM and RAW developer was Luminar, which I really enjoyed using. Lo and behold, they have a Windows version too! After a quick install, I thought I was... Continue Reading →

With unlimited mobile data and free WiFi at nearly every shop these days, so many of us spend free time watching videos while on a break. Personally, I have never been much into TV and have not seen a proper TV show episode, or tuned into any channel, for at least a few years, but... Continue Reading →

So many benefits of being in a big city! One drawback? The buildings are sometimes so tall that they can skew GPS satellite signal, reflect and bounce it off each other, until our phones get so confused that they put us on the map smack dab in the middle of a river. 🙂 I don't... Continue Reading →

I'm often mesmerized by back alleys in our city, the brick architecture, fire stairs and so many patterns and character. A person can get lost and forget about the sheer scale of our high rise buildings. As can be seen from the above picture, size doesn't matter. Contrary what some men tend to believe.

Doing street photography in a big city, walking around and shooting, inevitably brings a chance that you become a subject of a picture taken by a fellow street photographer. Happened to me more times that I can count and I often return the favor. I only wish one of my last year's pictures had not... Continue Reading →

I honestly did not know what the heck was going on until I dowloaded my picture at home and blowing it up on my 27" monitor to see finer detail of the man's face to make sure it was in focus. Only then did I realize the uncanny similarity with Matt Damon's looks. Since he... Continue Reading →

A bronze statue of a cow in front of the Chicago Cultural Center. If you scan the QR code on the sidewalk in front of it, it will moo at you! In early 2000's there was a nomadic display of cow status across Chicago. All sorts of cow statues with varying colors and designs. This... Continue Reading →

I went to the Chicago Cultural Center over lunch to take some architectural pics inside. Had heard that the place was really nice, ornate, with posh inlays, marble and woodwork. As soon as I walked into the lobby I heard a live piano play, so after checking in with a concierge and finding out that... Continue Reading →

#SeeingRedSeries Yes, I know, taking shots of people who are blowing smoke is such a cliché and grossly overused. Even though the composition is pretty bad, I'm mostly posting this because this shot was done in IR, this guy was vaping, and I actually did not see that smoke at all (I was too slow...

#SeeingRedSeries My workplace under a different angle and in case you are wondering, this is not lens distortion. I use a 24mm prime, which has hardly any distortion at all, and my building truly has this odd-looking shape. Today called Chase Tower and the primary Midwest corporate center of my employer, J.P. Morgan, this 869-foot... Continue Reading →

As I was on my way to the Cultural Center I ducked into one of the back alleys (my favorite places to shoot pictures for their ample amount of character, patterns and grit). I think this one was N Garland Ct with Washington St. visible out in the distance. I ran into a guy who... Continue Reading →
