Late Summer in Chicago

We recently moved to the Streeterville neighborhood of Chicago and its been a lot of fun, especially with the great weather we’ve had. I haven’t had a lot of photography time since moving but I made it out to take a few pics around the neighborhood this week. Here are a few of my favorites.

New Orleans

New Orleans is probably my favorite city in the U.S. to visit. If my passport ever got revoked, I’d probably be spending a heck of a lot of time there. Here are a few pictures I took over the course of last week while exploring different neighborhoods and the surrounding area.

The Lake Pontchartrain Causeway, the longest continuous bridge over water in the world.
Beignets and coffee at Morning Call in City Park.
Colorful homes in Treme.
One of many great dive bars in the Marigny.
Friendly people along the St. Charles streetcar line.
Dancers in a “second line” on a Sunday off of St. Charles Avenue, maybe the greatest thing ever.
Street performers on Frenchmen Street.
A neighborhood grocery store with hand-painted specials in Central City.
Downtown New Orleans from across the Mississippi River in Algiers.
Sunset from a harbor in Akers, Louisianna.

Guanajuato & San Miguel

Guanajuato and San Miguel de Allende are, without question, very special places. The culture, friendly people, tasty food, colorful architecture, and sweeping landscapes all play into it. I was there for about a week and a half back in January and spent a lot of time just walking around and exploring. These are a few of my favorite “walk around” photos. None of them are great but as I learn more, these are two places I’d like to go back to and spend a lot more time shooting.

Palaces in Seoul

I visited Seoul back in April and my favorite places to photograph were definitely the Changdeokgung and Gyeongbokgung palaces. Seoul is a huge, modern city and the ancient palaces are a nice contrast. These are few of my favorites.
