Portrait #19 is theresa

to break out of my shell for the middle third of these 50 portraits i have decided to meet and shoot some local chicago web celebs. first on my list? the owner, operator, and sole proprietor of The Local Tourist website (go check it out with the link provided, you’ll love it!), theresa. the site is a great way to explore chicago from where to eat to site seeing to venues. an awesome website run by an awesome person. i met theresa about 2 months ago while working with my wife at a meeting of the tweeters (tweet-up) and i realized early that theresa has one of those personalities that you don’t forget easily, especially when paired with her curly red hair. shooting photos in the early evening is fantastic so matching up the orange glow of the sun with the orange glow of her hair was perfect. also, talking and walking through your portraitee’s favorite park/stomping grounds for an hour or so is a great way to capture said portraitee’s personality. so go check out her site. you’ll be glad you did. thanks theresa for chewing the fat. viva la Local Tourist. also, i am just a sucker for some natural lens flair. take that photoshop!

the music:
i woke up this morning and i took the dog to the dog sitter and i drove down western avenue (one of, if not THE, longest streets in chicago) and all i could do was hum this song. i love the cars. i love love love the cars. this song (which is occasionally mistaken to be titled “I like the night life baby”) appears on a great album that features of the greatest album covers of all time. LINK. and lots of people forget about ben orr. rip mr. orr, your voice and songs will be missed.
