Public Domain Images – Car Crash Wreck Armageddon Explosion Chicago

Download This is a photo that I took when we were in Chicago. This was our first trip to the windy city. We made a road trip from Nashville, TN to Chicago to celebrate Shayna’s (my wife’s) 30th birthday. As we are were turning onto Wacker Dr., the street where our hotel was, we noticed what seemed like a post-apocalyptic armageddon taking place in the streets of Chicago. There were cops everywhere, people were lining the streets with their phones out taking pictures of what looked like explosions. There were incinerated cars twisted and turned upside down, and there was concrete rubble lining an entire city block and the tops of buildings were laying crumbled in the streets.

Public Domain Images – Colorful Steel Chrome Moose Sculpture

Download This is an interesting shot that I took when I was in Chicago a few years ago. I was at the Chicago Tribune building(which is freaking awesome!) and I turned around and saw this amazing steel (colorless) moose sculpture. Just as I saw the sculpture a tourist bus was driving by with an ad on it for an inkjet printer with the main text on the advert being “colorful”. I threw my camera up as quickly as possible and snapped the photo, literally shooting from the hip as the bus drove by. This is one of my personal favorite photos from the...
