Abandoned

Gary Post Office

Gary Post Office

As you know as a follower of my blog I am a photographer that loves to photograph rusty and abandoned places.  Recently I visited Gary, IN where there hundreds on abandoned buildings.  One of the building I spent a lot of time join was the Gary Post Office.  This si an image through an office window onto the main floor.  What I like it that nature is reclaiming the location as you can see by a tree growing in the middle of the floor.

Only In The Palouse

Nice guy, old car and old barn in the Palouse

Nice guy, old car and old barn in the Palouse

The Palouse offers up a lot of things.  While photographing there last week we came across this barn.  As we were shooting the owners of the barn came out and were real interested in what we were doing.  They went to great lengths to get this old car out of the barn and place it where we could take a picture of it with the barn as a background.  I did this image with my iPhone.

Under The Bridge

Under A Bridge In Chicago

Under A Bridge In Chicago

My route for my downtown Chicago walks covers many miles.  It is one of my favorite thing to do in any city but Chicago offers up so much.  I took a walk down the river towards Michigan Ave. and saw this bridge.  I was underneath it and used the double exposure function of Hipstamatic to achieve a color BW look for the bridge and make it somewhat abstract.  I kind of like it.

Look Up

Grant Park Chicago

Grant Park Chicago

Wandering around Chicago I usually visit Grant Park.  The morning there are always special.  There is a big open air theater where they have musicals and it is an architectural masterpiece.  I usually use my long lenses and have fund finding the abstract but having only the iPhone on this walk made me see different and work to find the shot.  This is one of them I found.

The Bean Again

My Reflection In The Bean

My Reflection In The Bean

Every visit to Chicago is an adventure.  As a routine I get up real early and walk the streets and visit places like the Chicago Bean and bug reflective chrome sculpture before the tourists do.  It’s fun having the whole place to myself and I have done a ton of cool images there.  Here is one from my most recent trip.  Shot on my morning iPhone expedition.

Chicago Head

Head Statue

On my last trip to Chicago I did my morning walk with just an iPhone.  I wanted shoot with an iPhone as it makes me see things differently.  I used the Hipstamatic add to create the images you’ll see over the next few days.  Seeing square is also challenging and proper framing of what you do see can make the ordinary look a bit different.  This is a rather new sculpture in Chicago and it allowed for some creative angle.  However, sometimes the straight on shot works best.

Buffalo Fire Boat

Buffalo Fireboat

Having been a firefight for many years I get excited when anything firefighting wise comes up.  When we were in Buffalo shooting Grain Silos we are given the option to take a ride on a Fireboat to the water intake facility in the lake.  What a cool trip that was.  This is an image made while we were docked at the intake facility and the firefighters decided to clean off the dock.
