Man was I in for a shocker on this photowalk. I did not imagine how hard it would be to work at remove the dark to make a picture. I still had a blast. We had a really fun group, and there was a lot of calling out settings and ideas. There are and will be more great picture on the Photowalking Utah Flickr stream check it out here I have posted more of the pictures I took on my Flickr stream here. By the way the title of this post is based on a theory that light bulbs are incorrectly viewed as emitting light when in reality they suck dark. More info here, it really makes for a fun argument.

EVER!!!!

We went to Gardner Village for a holiday evening.  I figured that since they go all out for Halloween then their Christmas would be amazing as well.  I was wrong.  There was nothing there that did not disturb me.  I did have fun hanging out with friends.  Here is the picture of stalker elf.

I really have loved being in Chicago it really is a great city with fabulous people. However, there are fabulouser people waiting for me at home. I leave with the view from my room. I loved looking out my 25th floor window at the city below and above.

In Chicago. I have been posting the fun stuff, but really this scene and the inside of my eyelids was all I saw for 95% of the time I was in the Windy City. I desperately want to come back here as a tourist or for a convention.

Is still dang good. On the short list of things I had to try while in Chicago was a authentic Chicago Deep-Dish Pizza.  I’m still not convinced it is pizza, but I am entirely sure that it is delicious.  Tons of cheese, green peppers, onions and sausage merged together in a baked casserole of desire… yes it was that good. And yes I ate most of it and then collapsed into bed into a cheese coma until the morning. :D :D :D

Just for the record I was in Chicago for a training class for Red Hat Enterprise Linux.  Because it was such a intensive class I felt like I had no time to be a tourist.  So the extent of my site seeing was choosing different routes from 410 North Dearbon to 101 North Wacker. I can’t explain why but my favorite route was down to Washington and over. Probably, because I got to walk through this Christmas village.

Just for fun I have included a before and after picture.

I probably should have done something with the people at the bottom of the picture, but I couldn’t think of what to do.

There are times that I still feel like a complete country bunk’n. One of those times was when I rolled into Chicago today.  This was the only day that I has for site seeing, but after 5-6 hours on the plane I was done. So the only thing I did was Chinese delivery and pictures from my room. I was on the 25TH floor and had a corner room it was very cool for the view.

I love photography because on a night that I am just going to take something so that I can say I did; I move a couple of lights and suddenly I am completely wrapped up in the process. I never would have thought of taking a picture how I did. I normally would to pull out the umbrella for a shot like this. Because I was lazy this time I found a look I love for this shot. Sure there may be some problems with it, but there are some things I love, mainly the textures rock. I want to go after this again when I have “time”
