Photo Contest: Bisnow Readers Went Global This Summer

    Photo Contest: Bisnow Readers Went Global This Summer

    With Labor Day in the rearview mirror, it's safe to say that summer's over. The upcoming weeks will bring us cold winds, heavy sweaters and pumpkin spice lattes (available Sept. 8!). But before we officially say goodbye to summer, let's take a look at where Bisnow's readers spent their vacations.

    WINNER: Lee & Associates Principal Steve Massell

    Steve (who has submitted pics to us before) visited Exuma, a Bahamas “out-island” inhabited by wild pigs that greet boaters on arrival. They're apparently super-friendly, and you can swim with and feed them!

    While the kids were away (at camp), Dan and his wife, Amy, went to play in Napa, CA. Taking the trip the day after the Taurus-Modal Group merger announcement, Dan and Amy visited 16 wineries and had incredible food. According to Dan, his favorite wineries were Inglenook, Schweiger, James Cole, Freemark Abbey, Peju, Cakebread and Mark Herold. As for restaurants, Dan would recommend Farmstead, Mustards’ Grill, Dean & DeLuca, and Redd.

    Alexandria Economic Development Partnership Commercial Real Estate David Remington

    David took a solo backpacking trip from Istanbul to Copenhagen while in between his former job with Cambridge Property Group and his current gig working with commercial properties for Alexandria Economic Development Partnership. In this photo, David was attempting to get a picture closer to the diminutive statue, and what you see is the moment right before he slipped on the mossy rocks and ended up in Copenhagen Harbor. Truly as graceful as the swan...

    Then in Montenegro, David snapped this pic on a lookout over the Old City of Kotor. The other folks in the picture (two Scots and an Aussie) were the strangers that talked him into jumping into a cab with them to see the sight. They did not mention that it was 27 switchbacks straight up the mountain on a one-lane, two-way road. But we can say for certain that the picture was worth it.

    SVN VP Jerry Goldner

    SVN VP Jerry Goldner

    In his free time, Jerry is a wildlife photographer who donates his work to Peggy Notebaert museums and WTTW. He has also donated an exhibit to the Lurie Children's Hospital. So it seemed only natural (pardon the pun) that we share the three photos he sent us from Katmai National Park. The first is the picture of a female bear trying to escape a huge male that wants to mate. Since that means he will kill the cubs—including the larger cub, which the female adopted—they are understandably terrified.

    Jerry took a picture of a bald eagle so majestic and patriotic Uncle Sam himself would shed a tear.

    Donohoe Construction Marketing and Business Development Manager Megan Vallach

    Megan took a trip to Mykonos in Greece this past July. To our knowledge, she did not fix the Greek economy. She did get us a great snapshot, though. So at least she has her priorities straight.

    Newlyweds Nate and Marifer spent five days backpacking through the Swiss Alps this July after leading a mission trip in Germany. Nate hadn’t taken two weeks off back-to-back in about five years, and, after the nightmare of trying to catch up on all that work, he remembers why!

    Sterling completed the “Escape from Alcatraz” triathlon on June 7. Showcasing the beauty of San Francisco, triathletes embark on a 1.5-mile swim from Alcatraz Island to the San Francisco shoreline, an 18 mile hilly bike ride out to Golden Gate Park and an eight-mile trail run out to Baker Beach and up the infamous Sand Ladder. This world-renowned triathlon, in which only 2,000 triathletes can participate, sells out within hours of the registration opening each year.

    The Wilbert Group Founding Principal Tony Wilbert

    Legend has it if you kiss a stingray at Stingray City in the Cayman Islands, you’re guaranteed good luck. Tony and his youngest daughter Rebecca each kissed a string ray. That means seven years of good luck for her and seven more years of this upcycle in commercial real estate!
