It was a great afternoon out with Tim and a bunch of fellow photographers. I appreciated learning where in the city to find cool perspectives to capture shadows and strong lines. His technical knowledge is extensive. Even though Iíve been shooting for years itís appreciated to refresh the skills and step away from routine.
