The neon lights from a nearby building illuminate the Randolph CTA stop in Chicago's Loop. It was a very foggy night so maybe that has something to do with how purple the station got. But you can also see how the street lights in the distance got very illuminated. I like how the old Marshall Field's sign is still up in the lower left of the composition. This photo reminds me a lot of the "Chicago L: Madison Stop" that I shot in January 2007.

The many colored lights in this area attracted me to shoot this Chicago CTA train stop. 10 exposures were shot and compiled into this HDR composition. One of my first HDR shots with a tripod.

The Chicago River cuts through downtown Chicago and is home to the most moveable bridges in the world for any city. Starting from the top, here are the bridges featured in this photo: Franklin Street Bridge, Wells Street Bridge, LaSalle Street Bridge, Clark Street Bridge, and Dearborn Street Bridge.

A little bit of trivia about a couple of these bridges. The top bridge at Franklin Street was an important part of the 2005 film "Batman Begins" because it's the bridge that connects Gotham City with the Narrows. The 2nd bridge from the top (Wells Street) is the double decker extreme bridge. It carries three lanes of southbound traffic along with two sidewalks. The upper deck slams across two sets of CTA trains every day with the brown and purple. The bottom bridge (Dearborn Street) is the only bridge featured here that was not built between 1919 to 1929. It was constructed in 1962, and its straight-line modern style certainly proclaims that.

The Corn Cob towers (aka Marina City Towers) on the right serve as a natural framing device for this photo. Newly reconstructed Wacker Drive happily sits on the left.

One of my favorite parts of this photo (other than the nice number of bridges shown) is how the Chicago River at the top of the photo splits into two branches.

Oh wait, but there's more! In the very back of the photo are two sets of Metra tracks. The set on the ground leads into Union Station. The top set leads into Ogilvie Transportation Center. In fact look at the top tracks NOW! There's a train leaving Ogilvie right now! Well, it's just my guess that it's leaving seeing that this photo was taken in the afternoon. Oh, this was shot on the top floor of Hotel 71.

Und diesmal ist sie nicht gekommen,
vielleicht hat sie’s nicht gepackt,
nur eine kleine Nachricht ist alles was sie hinterlassen hat:

Ich komm nie mehr, ich bin in Chicago, in Chicago,
irgendwo wo mich keiner kennt!
Ich komm nie mehr, ich bin in Chicago, in Chicago,
dort wo niemand, niemand meinen Namen nennt...

I decided to upload some other stuff besides portraits. This was taken a couple of years ago, when I lived in Chicago. I took it from the signature lounge floor 96, John Hancock Tower.

Full view

I was just so lucky to get this picture. There was a storm this saturday and I caught some lightning but this was just the strongest I ever saw and it happened during those 2.5 seconds of exposure. I hope you like it as much as I do...

This is in Montevideo, Uruguay and the harbor is called puerto del buceo.
