My friend has had this car since 2011. It’s a 1991 BMW 318is that he bought for $2500 from the original owner. It now has H&R Sport springs, Bilstein HDs, an actual cold air intake that I can’t remember the brand of, a high flow cat and magnaflow muffler, and a chip that raises the redline to 7300rpm as well as maybe…
It’s been a while since I’ve posted here, but trust me, I’ve been keeping busy. Moved into a rental house, pinching pennies, but snapping photos as much as possible. Without much comment because it’s past my bedtime but I wanted to post something, so here’s a few of the recent snaps from events I’ve been going to in…
So, on Saturday April 22nd, I attended the March for Science in Chicago. It’s a cause (among many others) that is very dear to me.
So, after having made a website and put a blog on it, I’ve decided that I’ll be posting on it instead of making my long posts here. If it’s okay, I’d like to continue to make small posts here linking to my blog when I post a new one.
Remembered yesterday that a long time ago I got rights to post here.
So, I’ve finally done it. I’ve given myself a birthday gift I’ve been wanting for quite some time now. Hope you all enjoy!
So, the final post of my Chicago walk last weekend is of the people I saw all around me. I found myself being a bit more bold this time, not asking and just snapping. People were either friendly or didn’t even notice. And those that were homeless or performing I made sure to give some money to before photographing.…
So, my 3rd of my 4 posts on my recent Chicago trip is just random stuff. I’m deciding to keep the longest for last. But here you go, random Chicago.
On my Chicago trip, I found that take photos of people taking photos was quite fun and turned out really nice! The last one here I can’t help but smile about because she finished taking her photo right after I took mine, turned to me, and just started laughing.
Yesterday I took a trip to Chicago starting at 10am and ending at 8:30pm. 23 miles later I had taken almost 1000 photos (I’m getting more particular about my shots). Most of them either dogs or people. So, my first post is the dogs, because everyone loves dogs, right?
I try my best to stay away from place with people on this day, so I went for a walk after work. Sadly, I only had an hour as the park closes at 5pm. Only took a few photos. But the walk was a much needed one.
Well my 60D came in the mail and it looks brand new out of the box. Along with an extra battery, the stock lens, and the lenses I have this will be a good setup for the time being. I mean look how clean it is!
I have a feeling I’m going to be going back to this place so often.
So, this has become one of my favorite spots recently. Small pond off of a small road with huge fields and nice wooded areas around it. I first found the place Back in May of 2015. Didn’t get a lot of good shots, as I was fresh with the camera. And the area kind of fell to the back of my mind. But one part that stuck…
So, saw a link to DxO OpticsPro 9 Elite. They are apparently a promotion right now at http://www.dxo.com/us/digitalcamerauk where you can get it for free. So I decided to try it.
So, yesterday was National Wetlands Day. Having the day off, I decided to go out and see if I could find some wildlife. The windchill was about 4F so I didn’t have much hope.
But I absolutely love this picture. One of my favorite pictures I’ve taken.
So, yesterday I decided to take a trip over the the Mississippi river on the Iowa side. Perhaps see some eagles and other wildlife. So I went to bed early and woke up (without an alarm) around 4 a.m.
I may have stupidly missed the Women’s March on Saturday, but I did go to a state park. Which are also vital to the environment. Here are the “good” shots I took.
As others, selections curated by season, after some deliberation and much edit.
