starting to look back
There is a noticeable chill in the air here in Chicago.
The weather is starting to change and I have started to mentally prepare myself for Winter.
While most people associate the end of a year with the holidays or snow or football playoffs, I lamely associate it with photo contests.
There still is a ton of 2009 left but I have had a lot of down time lately, most of it by my wife’s hospital bed as she recovers from a complication from her bladder cancer surgery a year ago. So, I have used part of the time to organize some of my favorite images and rethink what I liked earlier in the year.
One example is from January 25th. On that night, I shot the 1500th and final show of the musical “Wicked” in Chicago. I was the only photographer present when the curtain came down and the emotion flowed from the cast members.
Originally, I posted this image (click HERE) as my favorite but now I prefer the one above.
Over the next three months when I have nothing better to post, I will run through some of my 2009 work and ask for your feedback.
