I took this last night in Humboldt Park while playing kickball with friends. What a beautiful sky we've been having lately.
Here's another Hyperlapse video I have created. This time Critical Mass Chicago of August 2014 is the subject. Biking around Chicago was an amazing time with such a large group of mostly-positive people.
It's a bit shaky due to my iPhone 5 only being mounted with a Joby GorillaPod and a Glif+. Also, the Hyperlapse was processed at 8x, but I then doubled that speed when editing it together in iMovie. This reduces the amount of stabilization that Hyperlapse automatically provides. It was a sacrifice I chose to make in order to get the video to be of a reasonable length. Without the 2x speed increase in iMovie, the video would have been well over 10 minutes long.
Sidenote: does anyone know of any better iPhone mounts out there for handlebars that will allow for video to be recorded?

A protestor holds a sign reading "Let 1% Control 1% of our Politics" as candle lanterns are sent up into the sky in front of the Chicago skyline.

The waves were crashing high against the concrete shore that evening. The weather was windy and cool.

For Alison's birthday we took a walk through the farmer's market in Logan Square. It was a hot day and even the sunflowers seemed to scorching in the heat. You can almost feel it in the bright yellow flowers.

It was a hot, hot day in Millennium Park. I met a bunch of friends downtown to soak up the sun and listen to Iron & Wine play us some songs. It was a beautiful day. I can't believe I didn't get sunburn! Click the image above to be taken to the Gallery or click here.

Taken in the Cook County Forest Preserve. A spider crawls across the forest floor, captured for a moment in a shaft of sunlight. It's hard to focus on such tiny creatures in near darkness. I think this one is pretty moody. I hope you can see the spider well enough. Let me know if you can't. That'd be a shame.

The Minneapolis Henrys (my close friend Brandon's band) rocked out at the Whistler a couple weeks ago. It was a fun show. They had a ton of energy. Check out my photographs of the event by clicking the photo above or here.

Alison and I had a picnic at Montrose Beach on a chilly Sunday evening. Despite being the middle of June, the cold wind coming off of Lake Michigan kept us from sticking around for too long. The sky was beautiful though.

An icy outcropping at North Avenue beach extending out into Lake Michigan. So cold that day. Bitter wind and bracing chills. My fingers nearly froze in my fingerless gloves.
