Wednesday I decide to make myself go out again. I didn’t even give myself time to think about it really. Just grabbed my stuff and left early in the morning. But this time I decided to try it with a specific lens I’d love to get better at using.
We finally had a mostly clear night, so I took the new lens out for a little night shooting in St. Peterburg. There is a park up the street that overlooks Tampa Bay. This patch of sky is pretty dark, considering the light pollution.
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, 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.
My last shot on the roll, I was lining up to get a picture of this glowing Chinese takeout place. This guy wandered in frame, saw me lining up the shot, and posed. I snapped away not thinking how low my shutter speed was, and the shot came out blurry. Oh well. Next time I’ll be more ready.
I got a Russian 16mm fisheye a while back that came with three different colored filters that can be screwed into the back of the lens.
A very belated “hello” to you all. It’s been several weeks since FlowerGirlH4v0c kindly enabled me to post here on ‘Photography’ - life however, has kept me from contributing until now.
Hi Folks -
This was pre-name reading at the WTC site. The atmosphere is still heavy in lower Manhattan even after 13 years.

Not sure if we'd all be willing to post a weekly photo thread again (I remember it was a thing and then it wasn't), but I'd be happy to participate more frequently.
Just a rusted work van with a James Baldwin quote on its side.
Taken on the walk to my Subway stop. It got progressively worse but the pictures get better.
Hey guys. Been a while right?
I took this over the weekend on a short neighborhood walk. It was shot with a Samsung NX300 and edited in Snapseed on my phone; the connectivity sounded like a gimmick until I stopped caring about whether or not I'm carrying around a laptop on any given day.
I got to take a day trip out to Seattle with the camera in tow. The Seagulls at Ivar's on the pier are very used to being fed by tourists. I had my wife throw frys in the air while I snapped away. This one was my favorite.
