The Langham Hotel (330 North Wabash Avenue , Chicago, IL) was my home for a 24 hour period recently. I was on-site to edit 36 short videos in about 12 hours time, and to deliver them all by 7am the next morning. While, on paper, it was a pretty easy job – it turned out to […]

Today I’m working with a group of friends (it’s always great working with a crew you know – and this one is the A-Team) on a B-Roll package for Macy’s National Believe Day. It’s always fun coming to the city now and then, even with the traffic getting here.  It’s pretty nice being in the […]

We spent the day in Chicago yesterday, and unlike most of the time when we go down, we didn’t really have a plan. First we were going to Millennium Park, then maybe Navy Pier, but we finally settled on the Lincoln Park Zoo. And then when we parked at the Zoo, decided to just use […]

For awhile I was taking more photos than I had time to process, and I’m still getting caught up. These photos are from back in June when I spent the day with Andrew in Chicago at Navy Pier. It was part of the new “one-on-one” program we’ve been trying to institute with each child. So […]

Back in September Brenda and I took the day (child-free) to spend all day in Chicago walking, talking and taking photos. I decided that I would only take HDR photos that day, so this is my first serious attempt at this type of photography. The rest of the photos can be found on SmugMug. Normally […]

We spent a few hours Saturday afternoon in Millennium park. I’m always amazed at how beautiful Chicago is in the summer and how much it has to offer. We had a impromptu picnic on the lawn, let the kids roam free and had a great time. A few photos are here, the rest are on […]

While the Radio Flyer Red Wagon we’ve been using has served us well, it has slowly been becoming a tight fit with the boys. Not only do they almost not fit anymore, but there’s no extra room to carry the diaper bag or snacks. So, enter the new “Tractor Wagon” (this is what Andrew calls […]

I had to run some errands in the city yesterday, so to make it a bit more fun I brought Andrew along with me. We stopped to see my good friend Sheri for a haircut first, and then took the subway to the new Apple Store (no, I didn’t get a new iPad – they […]
