Recent participation in some photography forums has piqued an interest in doing a Project 365. Photography has been a hobby on and off for over 40 years and in the last 18 months my interest has intensified. So I've decided to jump in, give it a shot (no pun intended) and see if I can shoot every day for a year.

My expectations for this project are that it will provide motivation to expand my skills both behind the camera and in post-processing and provide a vehicle for experimentation. My photog pal Doug has been a great mentor, so I want to publicly say thanks; this is your fault (kidding of course).

It is going to be a learning experience, so any and all comments, critiques and encouraging words are welcome.

Thanks for viewing.

Chicago Evening

12/30/09 - Day 12
Downtown Chicago evening shoot including Federal Plaza, State Street, Millennium Park and North Michigan Avenue.   Since it was snowing, the wet pavement made for some striking reflections.  However, city reflections in the Bean, with the adhering snow powder and chunks, made for an unusual composition.  The snow forms, at quick glance, almost look like continents on a globe.  The sky in the upper left corner gives an additional clue that this image is of a reflection.  Was taken handheld using an 18-200mm VR lens on a D90.

Additional images from this shoot can be found on my Smugmug site at http://jeffm211.smugmug.com/Chicago/123009-Chicago-Evening-Shoot/
