Moment of Impact Posted in Photo Blog, on September 3, 2010 I enjoy getting away from time to time on the weekends and this photo was from a weekend at my family’s boat at Lake Shelbyville.  This photo is my friend Chris diving off the top of a boat and I managed to capture right as he was hitting the water. 0 Multiply by Six Posted in Photo Blog, on July 10, 2010 This is my friend RJ practicing his back flips at Lake Shelbyville, IL.  This is a photo merge of 6 exposures so you can see each sequence of his back flip.  I spent my weekend down at the lake and it was quite a beautiful and busy time.  Taking photos of wake boarding is not an easy task but I hope to capture some other great photos in the futu ... 2 City Life Posted in Photo Blog, on July 10, 2010 Chicago has to be one of the most beautiful cities at night.  The riverfront area is such a nice area to walk around during the day, but it is even better at night.  Chicago has been pretty busy at night with the Taste of Chicago going on during June.  Everyone seems like they want to be outside doing something.  The beautiful weather at night ... 8 Uncharted Territory Posted in HDR, Photo Blog, on July 8, 2010 I was out the other afternoon with a new friend of mine discovering some uncharted territory for me.  After walking down some trails in my area we discovered this creek and I happened to get there just at the right time of day to capture this photo.  It was a pretty neat place under a large bridge with lots of graffiti art in the area which was o ... 4 Fire Over Water Posted in Photo Blog, on July 5, 2010 I had a great 4th of July this year with my family.  This photo is from Lake Shelbyville in central Illinois.  There were hundreds of boats on the water watching the fireworks and we managed to get a great vantage point.  Hope your 4th was as fun as mine. 0 A Relaxing Cab Ride Posted in Photo Blog, on May 19, 2010 The yellow monsters are everywhere in Chicago.  You can also see them slowly making their way down the Chicago River from time to time.  This photo was made as I was walking down Michigan Avenue over the river. 0 Kite Surfing Posted in Photo Blog, on June 26, 2009 It was a windy day on the beach and there were several kite surfers enjoying themselves. I can’t get over living right next to the beach. There is always something to see.. Have a great weekend and enjoy the weather outside (hopefully its good!) 0 Against The World Posted in Favorite Photos, Photo Blog, Portfolio, on June 10, 2009 I found this lock attached to a railing while walking on the Main street bridge in Jacksonville. The lock looked very out of place but was obviously put there purposely. There were some other writings on it but this was the most meaningful. I would like to dedicate this photo to my friends Dusty & Lauren. 0
