  • I'm sick of the cold. I'm sick of the snow. I'm sick of the ice that forms from the cold and the snow. But at least it gives me something to take pictures of now and again. I was getting out of a parking space and saw the pileup of icy snow and a dark background. I didn't have a macro lens or extension tubes or any of the other tools of the close-up trade so I just grabbed a longer lens and shot tight. Winter looks better close up this time of year. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edtion.

  • Libertyville's Alex Snarski just begins to break the surface of the water while swimming breaststroke in the 200-yard individual medley at the North Suburban Conference swimming meet held at Vernon Hills High School recently. While shooting swimming, I'm always on the lookout for something a little different than the typical action shot, and I liked how the water created a bubble over the swimmer's face. This photo was published in the Perspective column in the print edtion.
