Aim high

available at etsy.com

Another thing I love  besides city street lamps, is the skyscrapers.  Like I have said before, I grew up in rural areas, and the city fascinated me.  The first time I went to NY, I just stood there with my mouth open when we arrived in Times Square.  Then a few days later, I was the dork lying on the sidewalk taking pictures of the skyscrapers, like these.  I also enjoy heights, so I guess I like to imagine the view from the top of those buildings.  You can also see these

Travel Tip-Chicago

available at etsy.com

Getting good pictures of the Bean in Millennium Park is difficult with so many people around.  If you would like to see it without anyone around, get up before the sun rises!  Not only is it nice and peaceful, you get an awesome reflection of the sunrise in the bean itself.  See this photo on Etsy.com.

My first awesome photo

for sale at Etsy.com

This is my favorite photo from Chicago.  We haven’t had the camera very long, so Chicago was “practice” with it.  I love cityscapes at night.  We went up to the observation area of the Hancock building to take photos.  I was hoping it was open like it is at the Empire State Building, but it wasn’t.  There was a fence blocking the view, and I couldn’t get decent pictures with it there.  So we went inside, and I had no choice but to take photos through the window.  There

was a reflection from the cafe behind me, so I had Jim put his had above the camera while the lens was up against the glass.  This and a few others turned out great.  I sold this print at an art crawl event, and it was published in the Vanderbilt University 2010 calendar.  I also have it hanging on my wall!  You can own it too available at Etsy.com.
