Three years ago, I was in Chicago for a reunion with classmates from Physical Therapy school and it was a great opportunity to photograph  the city.  I arrived a day late and missed to join their tour around various  landmarks so I begged one of my friends to accompany me to the Grant/Millennium Park area for this photoshoot. Since I did not travel with my  camera stand, I ended up using a garbage bin to stabilize my camera and prevent handheld blurring. This is my favorite photo in the series having captured the last moments of twilight while the illuminated magnificence of the Chicago skyline served as a backdrop to this historic fountain. A few of my photos of the city can also be viewed in my gallery in an earlier post.

  3. I carry my camera in a carry case thingy. But under where the camera sits I keep a rice-filled beanbag; bag is very handy if ever caught without a tripod—there’s always something handy to use and beanbag makes it so much easier (and often safer).
