Photographing the blue lights honoring Chicago Police Commander Paul Bauer who was gunned down while pursuing a suspect in early February.
We like sunrise. I have been an early morning riser since I took this high school teacher job in Hammond, IN five years ago. I don’t have a choice (I have to be in school by 7:15 AM.). That’s why I am always out and about during weekends, alone or with frequent photowalk buddy Mark (of Mark Marshall Photography) taking pictures of the sunrise.
We conducted the first sunrise shoot of the year at the Fullerton esplanade overlooking the Chicago skyline from the north. It was quite frigid, I could only stand about 30 minutes of the cold, and had to leave Mark to seek warmth in the truck parked on Stockton and Fullerton.
But it was beautiful out there early in the morning.
Using the balustrade to steady himself and his camera. I would have done it too.
This is what he was taking a picture of.

Just to photograph the skyline during the blue hour.

I just can’t have enough of it.
