I have traveled the highway to Key West many times. There is only one 2 lane road. US Route 1 and it is always an adventure if you allow it to be. The road is one of those that seems to go on forever and last forever especially if you get behind a slow driver. I found that you can’t be in a hurry and as a photographer you have to be willing to get off the highway and explore the side roads. There are gems everywhere if you try to find them.
This image was made by pulling off the highway where the old railroad bridge is. Luckily, there were some folks fishning to add the human element. I liked the design and the receeing lines created by the bridge as it fades into the horizon.
I have been converting my Capture One Catalogs to Lightroom Catalogs and in doing so I’m revisiting many of those images that I have seemed to forget. It’s a great excercise and I recomend everyone go back to their old files and look for fogotten images.

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.
Chicago is such a fun place to shoot street photography. You can get some real interesting images of some very unusual people and you can shoot shots like this that mix the city, steel and people into one image. I liked the framing and was trying to balance the perspective and composition out when a person walked into the image. Click and I got it. Make with a Phase One IQ180. Yes, you can shoot street stuff with medium format.
Ever wonder what holds up the great Sydney Bridge? this is an image of one of the four footings. Can you imagine the size of the wrench needed to tighten these big nuts? Actually I like the geometry and feel of this. Sometimes man made things are so much fun to shoot images of.
