One of my favorite photos, shot last spring of the El outside my apartment in Bucktown.

Chinatown Panda


I’ve recently been experimenting with shooting in black and white, inspired by my acquisition of an older film camera. All the below and above are shot digital, as I’m still working on filling my film camera roll.

The first shot, the panda, was original shot in color in Chinatown in San Francisco.

Rome – Piazza Navona

Last month my now fiancee and I took a two week trip to Italy, starting in Rome.

It was an amazing trip, and I took an amazing number of shots. I hope to publisher these over the next several months. The first is a series of the Piazza Navona in Rome.

We stayed near the Piazza Navona, a large and bustling square in the old part of Rome. Touristy, but also full of great restaurants and interesting people watching.

Bustling Roman piazza.

Navonna features two big fountains. The biggest and best know is the Fontana dei Quattro Fiumi (Fountain of the Four Rivers).

The Second is Fountain of Neptune.

It’s been a long time, but both were featured in “Angeles and Demons” by Dan Brown.
