One of my favorite cities to photograph is Chicago. It’s been a while since I was there due to the pandemic but that doesn’t stop me from going through my files. Here are a few gems from some of my last trips. I hope by the spring I can visit there again.
I am not a very good bird photographer. I know a number of my friends who excel at bird photography. While in Japan leading a workshop in 2019 I gave some bird photography a try. I had some good results. Today I am much better as I have a Sony a9 (soon to be a1) That focuses so fast and shoots for many frames a second that I would have to be an idiot not to get a good shot. These were shot with a Fuji XT4 and 100-400mmm lens. The Fuji while good nowhere compares to my Sonys. No matter what though it was shooting these.
There is a city in Chile that is about a two-hour drive from Santiago called Valparaiso. It’s a great name as there is a city here in Indiana named the some. Valparaiso in Chile is a city built on a number of hills. It’s. port city and until the Panama canal opened up years ago it was one of the busiest ports in South America. It’s also known now as a city of graffiti. Essentially the whole city is a street art gallery that graffiti artists have made a joy to walk through. I have added some images here for you to enjoy. I also have a video of my visit to Valparaiso that is fun to watch. You can find the video The Streets Of Valparaiso HERE
