As with most kids, I grew up with dreams of sports stardom in my future, but as high school came to a close reality set in and I traded in my bat and glove for camera gear.
Born and bred a White Sox fan, I always loved the rivalry of having two pro baseball teams in the city and would go to a game on either side of town should tickets come my way.
So as Opening Day 2011 came around I was lucky enough to get a hold of a pass to shoot on the Northside Friday.
My Task: Produce a multimedia piece on the Cubbies and the feelings surrounding the game.
Here is a few stills from the piece, but check out this link to the Sun-Times story, gallery with lots of great photos from Sun-Times photographer John J. Kim and video: CLICK HERE
Our hope for this blog is that it will be a place for you to come and see all the photos that we as photographers love to shoot. The ones the editors didn't like or the paper didn't have room for. The ones we shot knowing they didn't help illustrate the story but we couldn't help ourselves, and the ones that we shot because we wanted too, not because we needed too.
So come on in, sit back and take a look around. Leave a comment or two and let us know what you think, but most of all thanks for looking.
On a warm summer day Chris Hamburg sits outside his father's machine shop in Downtown Aurora and strums a guitar. "How can you not just smile about a day like this," Hamburg said. After moving to Aurora from his hometown of Elgin, Hamburg wasn't sure if it would ever feel like home did, but he says it's days like these that make him happy to be in Aurora.
