    I thought it would be nice to see some photos that people are proud of, so I thought I would start the festivities....These are some of the ones taken recently that I like. Nothing spectacular, but I like 'em!


    We had a hot air balloon chase during our Heritage Days weekend...It was cool to see so many balloons in the air at once and so close together.





    I went flying with a friend that same weekend and got this photo of our downtown Courthouse square with Heritage Days in full effect...







    This one was taken our first day in Chicago around the end of July. We were enjoying the Navy Pier and this storm rolled in within about 10 minutes. We wrongly decided to just walk the four blocks back to our hotel instead of taking a cab. We got drenched and I learned a valuable lesson about having a large ziplock freezer bag with you in case of emergency storms. I had my camera under my shirt while dragging my kids and half-running the four blocks back to the hotel while getting pelted in the face with quarter-sized rain drops...It was a little creepy to see the storefronts battening down the hatches as the storm approached....We took a cab EVERYWHERE WE WENT the rest of the time we were in Chicago.






    Another shot in Chicago, while on the river boat tour. I love the diversity in architecture styles that Chicago offers, and the boat tour is a great way to see fine examples and learn a little bit. The last time we were in Chicago, I talked the management of Marina City Towers (these corncobs) into letting us have roof access and I got a ton of photos of the downtown area from the 65th floor perspective...





    Photo of the Navy Pier in Chicago from the observation deck of the Hancock Tower. We had already done the Sears Tower deck the previous time and the Hancock was just as nice of a view, albiet slightly lower!

    not really "proud" of these but they are about the only pics that are on this pc..



    this was back in june on NBA draft night, i lost my signal about 5 minutes before the draft started but then it kicked on right when Dabid Stern was walking up to announce the first pick.

    here are some others (keep in mind that my camera sucks its a cheap fuji film digicam that cost like $149 about two years ago)




    car caught on fire in front of my building over the summer.

    i had more pics from the Indianapolis Zoo, Pacers Games and some other stuff but they are on my other pc's hard drive

    I am not much of a photographer, nor do I have the camera for it. Here's a couple pictures I have stored on my computer. Sorry to bore you all - they're nothing compared to the work of heywoode. Great shots!!! You have a real eye for photography.

    Thanks everybody for sharing, and thanks for the praise...I like to think I have some ability, but you just never know!!

    Photos don't have to be Pulitzer winners to be enjoyed....I would love to see tons more from users here!!

    I guess I need to figure out this Photobucket thing first...
    Hopefully I did it right.

    OK... that was simple



    These aren't earth shattering but they are some of the few things I have on this computer (that I've taken). ...Besides eBay pics and some business things.

    Photo 1 is pretty obviously the Indy Pace Car taken before the Bedford GM Powertrain announcement about their multi-million dollar expansion project.

    Photo 2 is the groundbreaking ceremony for the French Lick Springs Casino.

    That's a sweet 'Vette, and I love to see suity-boys shoveling dirt!! That's classic...

    NS, holy crap! Where was I when that thread went around??!! I need to see stuff like that more often. I have a scanner and could listen and roll out to stuff, but I'm way too lazy...A friend volunteers in EMA and I thought about riding with him sometimes, but again, it would be the minuteman drill and I don't want to be holding him up responding...Those are great shots! The one with the guy down by the truck with the crane hook down there shoulda been published...

    Thought I would post a few more since the responses picked up!


    This is the lens I was thinking about getting...<heh, I wish>...Not sure they'd let me in to Conseco with it though....






    These were our seats at last year's FanJam, courtesy of my camera phone...







    I always liked this photo of Reggie and JT...






    And I really like this shot of Reggie and Mark Jackson. That was the greatest night of my Pacerfan life, that is for sure...

    It also is very similar to the glass flowers ceiling they have in the Bellagio main lobby in Las Vegas complete with authentic flower smells. Or as those of us with allergies call it, a headache.

    These are shots I took outside our Courthouse on Monday morning...Strangest storm sky I have ever seen...although the Chicago 'Independence Day' cloud formation was a little more ominous...

    Might as well join in - these are all photos that I've taken that were used for a desktop series. Desktops are available at up to 1920x1200 if you want one, just tell me your preferred resolution.
