1. Close Encounters of the O'Hare Kind

    Chicago, a set on Flickr.

    On this trip to Chicago, several planes were lined up in parallel on approach to O’Hare. It was a very hazy day, but I managed to get a couple shots with the 70-200 and 2x teleconverter.

    Via Flickr:
    Photos of Chicago and in Chicago.

  2. Stroke it to the east, stroke it to the west. MD-80 airline safety.

  3. 'Tis Grilling Season on Flickr.

    Grab your grilling chimney and make some smoke!

  4. Good lawn mowing brew! (Sam Adams Porch Rocker)

  5. Reflected By Counter Light on Flickr.

    Had a great hunter-gatherer lunch with Ruth Whiting and Tim Elverston of WindFire Designs. This is a counter-weighted lamp designed and installed by Tim. Cool stuff. Ruth is subtly present in reflection. More creative works from them here: www.windfiredesigns.com and on the FB.

  6. A Lens Full of Fist on Flickr.

    Test shot with my new Nikkor 16-35 f/4. The fist was nearly inside the lens hood! This will definitely be a fun lens.

  7. Art Tattoo - MJ on Flickr.

    Here’s a capture of MJ’s awesome tattoo. I love the line work, top-notch. Message me if you want to know the tattoo artist, and I’ll get you the info.

  8. Mow, weed-eat, beer.

  9. The Unknown Path on Flickr.

    Future paths are often blurry. Sometimes you just have to focus on the step just in front of you, and be prepared for a surprise at the end.

    I followed this river path in Columbia, SC for a bit before heading back to the hotel.  I saw a river otter along the way, but couldn’t get a good shot.

  10. In a Dream on Flickr.

    Columbia, South Carolina.  A dream-state candid of a Portlandia native.

  11. Alley Trapped on Flickr.

    Ybor City, Florida.  Just about the smallest alley I’ve seen.  Surprisingly, there wasn’t too much trash or dead critters in here.

  12. Phone Booth No More on Flickr.

    Ybor City, Florida. There are a few pay phones left in and around Tampa. This one is now gone.

    Among the millions of blogs on Tumblr, only a small number are contributors of original content: “the world’s creators”

    And if you’ve ever looked at Tumblr’s Explore Page you might notice that Photography is oddly absent.

    There’s #design, #art, #architecture and even #artists on tumblr — but no mention of anything related to the art of taking pictures with a camera. Even #film is a trap — it’s for movies, not analog photography!

    We don’t think this situation is acceptable. So let’s Fight it.

    We’d like to ask all original photographers on Tumblr to start putting the #photographers on tumblr tag on every single photo you post.

    Photographers deserve more recognition among the Creators on Tumblr. Hopefully, by using this tag we’ll help the entire community of Tumblr photographers get noticed — and maybe one day we will see that tag on the Tumblr Explore page too.

    Reblog this post and spread the word.


    I do. Do you?

  14. Standing Tall on Flickr.

    Columbia, South Carolina.  I always seem to find myself shooting in the harshest light, but this works.  I like working with whatever natural light I end up in.

  15. After the Storm on Flickr.

    Shot on the approach to Tampa after some summer thunderstorms.
