    I just got a message that the Stanley Cup will be on display tomorrow at the Chicago Auto Show First Look for Charity. I already have photos of it from a Wings parade and from when it came to The Big House for a football game.

    It made me think if things I want to photograph. I live in Chicago, five blocks from Obama's house and I really want to take my own photograph of him. I know there are a lot better quality photos than the one I will eventually take, but I want to know that I took a photo of him. I also posted on another thread that I want to get a good shot of a baseball play at home plate and of sombody getting ejected from a baseball game.

    So what is your holy grail subject that you'd like to photograph?

    I'd love to go out and shoot wilderness / macro shoot bugs / flowers / plant species for a long time... that would be so cool.

    Landscapes and Cityscapes all over the world. Maybe some sort of extreme sports photography as well.

    These days, I get a decent amount of satisfaction from the comments of the parents of the athletes I shoot... and the people who pay me to take those shots heh.

    This thread is about pictures you want to take and I took those pictures. FWIW they were shot last spring when she was like 3-4 months after having a baby. I don't know too many new moms who can rebound like that! Maybe Jessica Alba, but she's 20 years younger than Salma.

    Olympics would be fun just because sports is my thing, but I think my dream would to be in the right place, at the right time, and get THE shot. Doesn't matter what it is, but something that only I'll have and will guarantee me well-paid assignments and amazing clients for the rest of my life.
