One Year Ago...
I thought about the past year, and how to represent it, so I went back through and found a few of my favorite images along with links to the related posts from this past year.
In February, I brought you Ice:
In March it was all about a Green River:
In April I took a closer look at 540 W Madison:
May found me looking at Breasts:
June gave me access to views from atop Marina City:
In July there were Things that Involve Water:
In August I posted various Sharp Night Shots:
In September I took a liking to the Corner Shot:
October granted me access to night shots of Daley Center:
On a Sunny November day I stumbled across the Pittsfield Escape:
December was all about the Final Rush:
And finally, January was all about warmth and a Foggy Hancock:
Other highlights of the year included being mentioned last May in an article by Chicago Tribune Architecture Critic, Blair Kamin about temporary views. As well as several mentions and/or photo credits on such sites as Chicagoist and Gapers Block.
My major project of the year was my Unknown Loop Streets Series. Over the course of several months, I posted on 15 different streets mapped on Google, located within the Loop, but unknown to most passersby.
The new year brings new challenges, new opportunities, and with the new camera, I hope better images. My priority is to learn how to take better images, and how to use my camera to my advantage. I also plan to introduce a completely updated and better site over the next few months.
Thanks again... To you my reader... For keeping me motivated to get my butt out there and shoot images of my neighborhood.
EDIT - 1/31/06: I fixed all of the images above so that they will open larger in a new window. I meant to do it yesterday, but didn't get a chance.
