Door County Visitor Guide Photos

Filed Under (Landscape, Personal) by Robert on February 18, 2009

Each year I try to get some of my images featured in the Door County Visitor Guide which is their brochure packed with vacation ideas. Door County is a quick vacation getaway from Chicago and perfect for a long weekend. Some of our images that they used this year include the photographer/writer credits page at the beginning—a cold, icy sunrise, and a windsurfing image for their article on windsurfing and kite-boarding.

Filed Under (Personal) by Robert on January 10, 2009

Each year hundreds of daring souls brave the frigid waters of Lake Michigan on January 1st for the annual Polar Bear swim. This year I happend to grab a few photographs of the event, and I can tell you I was sure glad to be behind the camera on this one!



First the local fire department checked it out just to make sure there were no ice hazards.

Boston Trip

Filed Under (Personal) by Robert on September 6, 2008

Boston is such a cool city and easy to get around. I think it’s one of the top walking cities in the U.S. and the train system gets you around anywhere you want to go. It’s so rich in history. The freedom trail is a quick way to see a lot of that history. If you’re ever out out there, you have to look up Frank Bernard who does caritures right outside at Faneuel Hall. He’s awesome and a great guy!

Jerry Seinfeld at the Chicago Theatre

Filed Under (Personal) by Robert on February 18, 2008

The Seinfeld show was arguably one of the most popular and successful sitcoms on American television and one of my favorites—I just love this type of humor. The creativity between Seinfeld and David was amazing. Jerry Seinfeld will be at the Chicago Theatre on April 11 and tickets go on sale February 22nd. I’m hoping to be able to snag a couple  for me and my wife. Anyone looking for a great night out with your date, I think this should make for a quality time. You can’t go wrong with humor and laughter.

Happy Independence Day

Filed Under (Personal) by Robert on July 4, 2007

I’m so grateful for the freedoms this country offers, and each day I’m inspired by the many great people in this nation and their accomplishments, many of which would not have been possible if not for the opportunities available. I hope everyone has had a wonderful Independence Day.

Took a trip with my brother John and our families to Door County over Memorial Day Weekend. It’s a great place for a quick getaway and it was nice spending some time with the family.
