Looking up from the tour bus on a cool (cold) May day in Chicago.
A quick snap of downtown Columbus... there was a quick impromptu Flickr meet up, I took only five photos, this was the only one I was somewhat okay with... If I wouldn't have rushed it I would have walked down further and gotten a better angle, oh well... next time. I think this photo is best viewed large.
I haven't shot that much for just recreationally as I've been busy with other stuff in life and shooting for a couple of weddings, and other client projects. I need to get out more and just shoot for the fun of it.
NOTE: This photo made it into Flickr's 'Explore" as one of the top five hundred most interesting photos on a particular day. You can see all of my photo's that have made it into the Flickr Explore pages here.

Downtown Manhattan - I know it's cliche, but I don't see many/if any NYC skyline photos with this perspective. For this shot I applied a B&W Kodak film filter to give it an old-world feel. I am not sure why but every time I look at the NYC skyline, I get a sense of nostalgia..
Street lamp on the esplanade, downtown toronto, at 4.30pm on wednesday. One more week will bring us to the shortest day and the days will start to get longer. Winter seems far less daunting when you think on that fact !
explore #179. Thanks everyone for your very generous response. It's greatly appreciated.
This is People’s Bank HQ in Downtown Bridgeport. I always wanted to shoot this in long exposure and finally found the perfect day in the way the clouds were moving. View it in lightbox
Only processing was an S curve added in CS4 to give that extra pop.
I thought it was the perfect day choosing a Sunday and no crowds of people until I had a run in with a Security Guard from People’s. He told me I cannot take a photo of the building or where I was standing at the curb on the sidewalk I wasn't allowed to shoot. I inform him of my rights and that he is wrong. He said the President of the bank doesn’t want anyone taking pictures of the bank. He continued to argue with me that I’m wrong and since 9/11 you can’t take photos without permission. I told him, I’m not moving and to call Bridgeport PD. The Police never showed up. I’m involved in Law Enforcement and know the rights of a photographer. If I was shooting on their property they have the right to tell me not to shoot there, but on the sidewalk you have that right and if the building is not copyrighted you have that right. He also told me I couldn’t shoot the Barnum Museum as well, since that is part of the Banks Property. Again, he was wrong in that as well.

Another from downtown
In Los Angeles for Christmas at my sister's, I managed to get out one night for photos. I headed downtown to the 4th street bridge for this classic LA scene. This shot is so popular there are holes worn into the sidewalk from the positioning of tripod legs. Sunday night before Christmas and there are two other photographers besides me hanging out on this overpass. That's a bit nuts.
