Time for a Beer?

People will argue about anything. One of the most frequent arguments you hear in taverns and bars is which beer is the best. This argument is specious at its core. It is like saying which food is best. In summer one may choose a lighter beer and on Saint Patrick’s Day, anything but Harp or Guinness is just not proper in my opinion. However, it is also in my opinion that the best beer in the world comes from Belgium. With over 2000 beer brands you have a world of choice in Belgium. No matter if you like Duvel, Trappist or Stella the best brews are made in Belgium. Leffe is one of my favorites. You can buy a print of this image at my commercial gallery by clicking here.

Don’t Wanna Discuss it!

I said earlier this week that a Photographer had to give themselves permission to observe people. My wife said this shot was intruding and, yes it is but it honestly captures a moment of human expression. As a photojournalist your image should capture a decisive moment, a human expression or a moment of action. That is the way Henri Cartier Bresson teaches and who can argue with that?

The Face of Chicago #1

There is no better place to observe people than at the baseball park. Each park has it’s unique character and feel from the building and from the people who attend. You can tell that U.S. Cellular Field exhibits the soul of Chicago. I have never been to Wrigley so I can’t compare the two ballparks. The people at The Cell remind me of “my people”, the fans I grew up with at Forbes Field as a youth.The drink beer, eat Kielbasa and love their team. These two look to me like pure Chicago.

Hey Beer Man!

In Chicago’s U.S. Cellular Field (The Cell) they sell a lot of encased meats…brats,polish,hot dogs etc. On Independence Day they even offered 99 Cent Hot Dogs. However, nothing compares with the sales of Beer. There were more beer vendors than any other sort of vendor and each had their own unique style and distinctive yell. I am sure this guy is very nice but he looks a little crazed, eh? See other images and buy prints at my commercial gallery.

The Taste Buds

Penn State University had a fraternity fund raiser called the Phi Si 500. It was a race, where runners had to run a mile and stop and drink a beer at a number of bars along the way. They would frequently do so in costume. This is Bud Man leading the Taste Buds to the next bar in State College PA during the 1980’s. The University and the City finally agreed to prohibit the race and the Fraternity created a more standard fun raising event. You can purchase a copy of this print by clicking here.
