After hours Chicago.  Always love the lights in the big city.

Chicago, in and out of focus.  Always a fun time on the streets of the Windy City.

When in after years we’re turning,

Alma Mater, back to you,

May our hearts with love be yearning,

For the scenes of old Purdue.

Back among your pathways winding,

Let us seek what lies before,

Fondest hopes and aim e’er finding,

While we sing of days of yore.

With more than 9 inches of fresh snow the other day, Gort and I went out #snowshoeing.

What happens when Transformers take over Chicago!  Going through my archives I found these un-posted photographs of the filming of Transformers Dark of the Moon.  This was happening during my annual summer Chicago trip with my photog buddies, July 2010.  The following year we went back to Chicago and saw the movie at the Navy Pier IMAX.

From my annual Christmas trip to Chicago with my photog buddies.  This is a display located at the base of the John Hancock building.  Usually there is a large model train setup here, this was the first year in about 5 or 6 that we have been taking this trip that it was not there.  I was sad.  :(  This image is an Brenizer method photograph.

Photographs from Friday morning.  I spent about 40 minutes waiting to catch one of the 5 eagles making a run for a fish.

My latest passion project video.  So often I hear people complaining about nothing to do in Indiana. I understand it isn’t full of awesome mountain scenes but there really is a lot to get out and enjoy in this state and some pretty cool history. So give this a look see and enjoy! Remember, get outdoors!

It’s a wonderful life

December of 2012 I spent a few days in Bloomington Indiana with Jonathan Clinthorne and Scott Breeden filming them as they did what they loved, running. Both are accomplished ultra trail runners and just a couple of great people. This was a personal project that I had contacted Jon about and he and Scott graciously let me tag along. Shortly after shooting in Bloomington Jon was able to get in on a 50k race up in Michigan which I drove up and filmed parts of as well. There are a few scenes from that race intermingled to help show how much these guys train to run something like a race which is short in comparison. Enjoy!
