Photo Challenge: Beyond

Vermont Countryside

montrealI’m always trying to “look beyond” and in these couple images I’m doing it in the physical sense. I took these similar looking compositions on back to back days in two completely different settings. The top image is taken from a mountain overlooking the countryside in northwest Vermont, not too far from Burlington. The following day at rougly the same time, I hiked up to the highest point I could find in Montréal (my first Canadian city) and I found a similar view, but this time overlooking the cityscape.


Weekly Photo Challenge: Foreign

Having a pot of stew with my family is not foreign to me. But ordering it with new friends in Korea and having it brought out to the middle of a table to be heated over a grill definitely is. Yes, it was as delicious as it looked. That’s what I call Seoul food!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Solitary

The weather is getting cooler in Chicago and I have been working with winter imagery the past week and a half at work. When I saw this week’s photo challenge it instantly reminded me of this lonely walk of solitude. It’s a long exposure I took a couple of years ago in a forest preserve northwest of the city. The sun sets quickly in early December, but the numbness sets in quicker.
