Ever had a "bad case of Mondays" where you get to work and nothing is working the way you expected it to? Try to make it through a lousy work day like that and then get stuck on a packed train home, engine broken, hot sunny day, A/C working only intermittently, parked in the middle... Continue Reading →

#SeeingRedSeries A throwback to last winter when I was walking around trying to do some infrared. IR shooting is usually known for its white hot foliage and grass in the middle of a summer day, but on a clear day like this one can get really decent IR light even in winter. It comes with...

Chicago's L won't break any records in speed, let alone in reliability and timeliness of schedules. It reminds me of Berlin's S-Bahn, which is also very slow (hence the moniker "schnell-bahn").But when the L gets going that thing puts out so much noise outside of it makes my ears ring and it feels as if...

Yep, and that is how it looks when you miss your train... I confess it was completely and utterly my fault, as I was standing on the platform taking pictures of the trains and forgot about the time, the doors closed shut and off it went.

Sometimes it is good to stop and let the crowd pass you by and watch as they turn into a faceless color blur. Shutter @ 1/3s, handheld. Ricoh GR. Endless possibilities. I'll try to re-take this shot some other day, but will need a tripod and shoot at f/16 for an even better starburst effect.... Continue Reading →

Finally did it! After what seems to have been an eternity I've finally decided to take the plunge and get a GR! B&H had a sale on it and threw a $75 gift card into the basket with addition of an SD card and a Ruggard pocketable case. No brainer. Not going to do a... 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...

Waiting for my ride home on Metra's double decker to go for a long Labor Day weekend. If only would the doors finally open...

#SeeingRedSeries One hot early summer day this was. Back in early June I popped my head out for a lunch break and headed to the Lake. I caught a glimpse of not so well known view of Chicago's skyline. Beautiful bright blue sky. In this instance, it's in infrared, so the blue naturally turned out... Continue Reading →
