Today, Reuters released a set of photos that I shot and a story about researchers in Chicago working with electromyography — electrical signals produced by muscles — and pattern recognition computer software to control and develop a new generation of robotic limbs.
I have had a very busy stretch the last four days. I have photographed three professional games, made several website updates and hosted a small gathering of friends. Here are some images from last nights Blackhawks-Canucks game. Chicago vanquished Vancouver, winning the playoff game 7-2. Chicago now trails in the first round series the-games-to-one.
It looks like SI.com chose one of my pictures from the Bulls-Pacers game for their pictures of the week sideshow.
I shot last night’s Bulls-Pacers game in Chicago. For this game I decided to mount a remote camera on the basket so I could add a unique angle and end-up with more usable photos from the game. All-in-all, I think I shot around 1000 photos to end up with 17 images worthy of sending in to my client, Reuters.
Five years ago today I met reporter James Kelleher. He had come up with a story to feature a truck stop preacher in rural Illinois. After a few hours of driving, the two of us found our selves in the back of a semi trailer, which served as a church for road worriers of the 18-wheel variety. On a personal note, I am not a very religious person and this may very well have been the only church service I attended in 2006.
