After many attempts with timers, I finally picked up a shot that had lightning strikes across the skyline before a storm. It’s only one exposure, at 2 seconds.

We Gave All
On April 18th (Good Friday), I was able to get into the abandoned St Boniface Church in Chicago’s West Town neighborhood and photograph the interior, just before sundown. I didn’t imagine how decayed and deteriorated the church really is. The pictures speak for themselves, and some are more processed than others by having taken bracketed pictures. Walking around and looking with the naked eye strikes a sad emotion, and makes one ponder how beautiful the church was decades ago.

I took a walk along Chicago’s lakefront before dawn to get some shots of the ice. This HDR picture captures the sun and frozen conditions just north of Oak Street beach. The approximate temperature was -4 degrees Fahrenheit.
On the eve of the eve, I captured the Bean as it started to snow. It was a cold and icy night.
The Chicago River with floating blocks of ice just near the Merchandise Mart. It was a cold, misty night so having a picture turn out well was fortunate!

The sun shines through the trees and highlights the fall leaves and headstones at Graceland Cemetery, a very serene location for a Sunday afternoon walk in the fall.
