I freed up some time last week to visit my favorite park in the whole world and just meandered through the park, taking pot shots of whatever. Great day!
Ruby was a classmate in college – we’ve known each other since 1973. She is now based in Washington State at the University of Washington. She was in Chicago a few months back to visit with family. Fun times!
Photographers at The Bean during Earth Hour last night. Earth Hour (dimming/shutting off of lights for an hour) happened last night and I went to two places in Chicago to photograph the event. First, I shot at the area near the Adler Planetarium, on the breakwaters of Solidarity Drive to have a panoramic view of [...]
Several of the photo meet up groups I belong to – Flickr, Chicagoland, Long Exposure, and the Filipinos of Greater Chicago – were at the Luminous Field installation on the Saturday of the weekend before it closed. I went there on my own – but of course I was happy to see many of my [...]
My photowalk buddy, topmedic taking photos of the funky light formation projected to the underbelly of Cloud Gate During its ten day run at the AT&T Plaza in Millennium Park, I made it a point to visit this incredible art, video and sound installation by Luftwerk collective with music presented by the Third Coast Percussion [...]
I was at Millennium Park earlier to day to … take a photo of me leaping. I figured, it would be best to do this in my favorite photo subject – The Bean! The exercise was in response to Flickr’s call to take a photo of people jumping … because today is the extra day [...]
Luminous Field is a new interactive video and sound installation by the Luftwerk ensemble at Chicago’s Millennium Park. This incredibly bold and innovative light show transforms Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate and the surrounding AT&T plaza into a wondrous canvas of digital images of geometrical forms in motion, in wild neon colors. The project comes from [...]
Last night’s shoot at Millennium Park in Chicago.
Two nights ago, I decided to pass by Millennium Park and do some shooting in the cold. I wasn’t the only one who had that great idea. No explanations needed. Enjoy!
Chicago was absolutely glowing last night … lucky Lollapalooza fans.
Last Saturday, a planking flash mob occurred at The Bean. Planking is the act of acting like a plank of wood – basically lie on the pavement facedown with your hands on your side – and remain at that position for at least three minutes or so. So about a hundred, maybe more, people at [...]
For the past several nights, Chicago has been enjoying terrifically electrifying blue sky at sundown. This is the best time to go out photographing because the light is even and diffused. And many photographers are taking the opportunity to go out there and click.
Self portrait This is the 2nd iteration of Mr. Bill®’s Bean-A-Palooza (BAP)®. Every year, Mr. Bill®’s Facebook friends gather at Chicago’s Millennium Park to celebrate … whatever, life I guess. Most of us don’t know each other or haven’t met each other – except on Facebook and being on the list of Mr. Bill®’s friends. [...]
I haven’t shot a wedding solo yet, that’s why I am very curious to watch the process a solo wedding photographer goes through to obtain that wonderful photograph. Rule no. 1 … wear black. Don’t know why, but it seems it’s de rigeur to wear black when shooting weddings. I have no clue what the [...]
Love going to the Bean right now – so much photo activities!
The father first took the picture of his family, most probably with his in-laws, then asked a passer by to take their picture. Just a slice of life at Chicago’s Millennium Park AT&T Plaza where Anish Kapoor’s Cloud Gate (the Bean) is located. Now that I am in downtown most of the week, I find [...]
Really spectacular fog covering most of downtown … all taken with my iPhone.
