Color on the Lakefront

A beautiful Fall day with colors out in full force on Lake Michigan.

First time at Wrigley!

Finally made it to Wrigley Field!
Below is a photo story of my trip: 2 Cubs fans and 2 Brewers fan (myself included) going to the Cubs vs. Brewers game.

Enjoying the summer weather while waiting for my friend to pick me up in Milwaukee in the morning.
Waiting to be Picked Up in Milwaukee

Waiting at O’Hare to pick-up a friend. We got yelled at a few times by the pick-up zone ladies. They weren’t messing around 😛

My friend is tired of waiting for the friend we’re picking up…

Made it to Chicago and parked about half a mile from Wrigley Field. Two cubs fans vs. myself and my friend Mike in the Corey Hart jersey.
The boys are back in town…

Making our way inside after my sunscreen got hijacked by the entry guards. The guy behind me had a 70-200mm Canon L-series (pro) lens on his DSLR (I’m using a 24-70mm Canon L-series) and hopefully he made it through gate check, they were calling over the supervisor to make a decision as I entered Wrigley. There were a couple people inside Wrigley with long-lenses, but no one with a pro-end lens.

I’ve never had any trouble at Miller Park bringing any of my cameras or lenses in.

Made it to a patio with a great breeze on a hot and humid day (I love the heat).

What a great looking field… sold out game… fans stay the whole time…

Mike and I selfie. Note that is not a weird sweat stain on me (lower right of frame).

Patio break for some fresh air and a great view.

Checking out the upper deck. Not a bad view anywhere in the stadium.

Post-game in Wrigleyville… the rivalry continues…

Distracted by the sweet lights on the ceiling…
Cool Shit on Bar Ceiling

You can imagine how exhausting dealing with these idiots all day can be 😛
This is What I had to Deal With

Walking to a different Wrigleyville bar. The guys laugh in the bottom right kills me.
Walking to Bar / Guy in Bottom Right is having a Good Time

What an awesome sign and entrance.
Wrigley Field!

Time to head back to Wisco…

C*H*E*E*S*E - Heading back to Milwaukee

Thunderstorms and ridiculous 80’s music kept us entertained on the way back.

P.S. Here’s a short video from the day:

Milwaukee Spring Night Photos

Emily Fire La Perla

I took some photos during a Milwaukee Spring evening out. Locations include La Perla (Mexican Restaurant), Lake Shore Park, and Downtown.

I just brought out a light/small/inexpensive lens, “the nifty fifty,” Canon’s EF 50mm f/1.8 lens on my Canon 5Dmk3. Photos were processed in Lightroom and about a third also had some work done in Photoshop as well. To see all 17 photos in the gallery click here.

Milwaukee Spring Night Photos AT LA PERLA FOR DINNER AND DRINKS:
Genius direction, “Um, look at the fire.” On La Perla’s patio.

🙂 Also on the patio.

Awww, I think they like each other. On the other side of the room, a guy was humping a girl on the motorized kid ride.

I had some sweet red-light timing on this.

Milwaukee Art Museum seen through the Lake Shore bridge. This is genius because they both have pokey things.

The girls consider jumping off the Lake Shore Bridge.

I also call this picture “Art Sauce,” but the lighting was at least done in camera. Makes me feel a little better.

A relaxing night.

Lake Shore… Marina? Whatever you call that protected water area.
Also, genius compositing by me.

These sissy ducks were totally scared of me and my evil camera.

If you could turn the camera to your left a little, you would see some mischevious kids.

This is where I park my imaginary boat.

DOWNTOWN at golden-hour before going to dinner:
The museum and the plant are competing to see who can spread their wings better. It’s a close call.

People love to hate this sculpture. But see how much fun it is?
