Chicago for the weekend

It isn't often that I get to make one of my kids on a business trip, but this was one of those rare chances. So, my daughter and I made the trip to Chicago, mainly because she wanted to go to the American Doll store which is located there. We made a couple of trips to the store and, of course, we made time to shoot some pictures.

First we shot at night and then the next day we had a chance to take some fun pictures downtown before our plane took off to bring us home.

She calls this picture her "World of one person" which makes me laugh. We saw this empty amphitheater and couldn't resist this picture of her cheering alone. :)

New York, New York

As many of you might know, New York City is not my favorite place in the world, but each time that I go there I find something new and different to appreciate. On this trip, myself and a couple of other photographers made time to go to the Cloisters which is uptown. We had good fortune to find Olga walking through the gardens, a nice young woman who was willing to let us take some pictures of her. What started as a "We love the sunlight on your hair, do you mind if we take some pictures of you", turned into a 4 hour modeling session. For someone who had never had her pictures taken like this, she did a great job. It turned out to be a fun day for all of us.
While taking the subway back downtown, towards Time Square, I couldn't resist this little boy who was asleep on his mother's leg. I asked permission (of course) and took some pictures of him which I later emailed to his mother. Kids are so darned cute when they are sleeping.

And then, as I always do, I made sure to get a couple good night shots. New York City is a great place for these shots since the city is full of color, lights and lots of movement.

Hershey, Pennsylvania

Yep, this is a town that knows their chocolate. You really can't go anywhere here without knowing that you are in the town of Hershey. Everything smells like chocolate and they have plenty of places selling the sweet stuff. I wasn't here very long, but long enough to capture a couple of images from the town.
My kids loved the idea that the street lights in the center of town are all decorated like Hershey Kisses. Some look like they are wrapped and others look like chocolate.

Fleet Week in San Francisco & The Blue Angels

For the third year in a row, we went to San Francisco to watch the air show during Fleet Week. This time we went right to the front of the show so that we could get a better view of the events. Although there were some really great flight exhibitions, the Blue Angels always steal the show. They are fast, the are loud, they are low and the precision flight is awesome. You can check out all the pictures from the air show at:
