Last weekend, I was at a house party and on the television was a show highlighting top Olympic moments of the past.
As I sat and watched the highlights, I realized that during the three Olympics that I have photographed (Athens, Torino and Beijing) I have witnessed some incredible moments.
Today, I decided to concentrate on the chairs that people put out by the curb.
In an hour of driving around the streets in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood, I photographed well over 50 different types of chairs.
Each year, I try to work on something different.
One year was a photo column, another year I worked on portraits and last year I actually used my strobe while doing on a story.
My new thing in 2010 was street photography.
I could have spent an extra hour sitting on my couch watching the Bears' game before leisurely driving into the city for tonight's Hawks' game but instead, I left early so that I could squeeze in a bit of street photography.
On November 1st, Army Pfc. Andrew N. Meari of Plainfield, Illinois, died in Kandahar, Afghanistan, of wounds sustained when insurgents attacked his unit with an improvised explosive device.
Today, Maeri's remains were escorted through the streets of Plainfield and Joliet.
