Bird flying by

Bird flying by A gull flies off after an inconsiderate photographer runs after it to shoot it. Beats having the kids do the running eh? They might fall! This was taken in San Francisco, and that’s The Golden Gate Bridge in the background. I went through my shots from my August trip a few days […]

Bay Bridge San Francisco

Bay Bridge San Francisco This is the Bay Bridge in San Francisco. It’s the view from Matt’s apartment building. He brought Andy and myself up there to enjoy the view, and probably in my case to keep me awake after the long flight!

Waiting for Passengers

Waiting for Passengers People wait expectantly in San Francisco International Airport for the first sight of someone they know to appear in the crowd off a plane. Toni, Andy and I were there to meet Podz off his plane. I had flown in earlier in the day and was almost asleep on my feet but […]

The Brown Line to Kimball

The Brown Line to Kimball Aboard one of the trains of the Chicago L, the elevated and underground train network in Chicago. I think this was taken near the south end of the Loop, possibly around the corner from the library. The last time I was in Chicago I took the L for nostalgic reasons […]

Wrigley Building Sky Bridge

Wrigley Building Sky Bridge This is the sky bridge between the two sections of the Wrigley Building in Chicago. We were walking through when I looked up and immediately noticed the leading lines of the buildings and the walkway. Way back in 2003 I photographed the Wrigley Building a few times and I’m pretty sure […]

The Thieving Duck

A duck robs a poor innocent woman as she’s distracted by the cute ducklings. Moments later they all rush off with their ill-gotten gains! What you don’t see is the camera crew, make-up and lighting people and a small crowd watching from behind them. This was for some advert and of course the woman in […]

Sears Tower and Flagpole

Sears Tower and Flagpole Sears Tower in Chicago and it’s reflection in a flagpole on the grounds of the building. I love the light and shadows in this image and the mirror image of the reflection.

Children, wait in line

Children, wait in line Children wait for their teachers in down town Chicago last year. They were standing on the pavement (oh ok, side walk) near the Chicago Board of Trade. I presume on a school outing, hope they enjoyed themselves! I’ve been holding on to this photo for months now and since I don’t […]

Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet

Boeing 747 Jumbo Jet A Boeing 747 is readied for another flight, with hand luggage on board. This is the plane that flew me to London Heathrow from San Francisco. I shot the photo through the plate glass of the departures lounge. It was converted to b/w and dodged/burned afterwards. The panoramic format works really […]

Six Apart Mark

Six Apart Mark Niall Kennedy drove myself and Mark Jaquith around on a small sight seeing tour of the local attractions in San Francisco after WordCamp last Saturday. A visit to the offices of Six Apart proved to be too good a thing to pass up so we posed for a few photos on their […]

Ferry Building’s Clock Tower

Ferry Building’s Clock Tower The clock tower of the Ferry Buildings, San Francisco. We had a pre Wordcamp dinner with lots of people in Taylor’s Automatic Refresher. I was glad to meet many people for the first time, among them Niall Kennedy, Scott Beale, Michelle Clay and Safire. I guess giving me business cards is […]
