#SeeingRedSeries Entrance into Chicago's coveted Jazz Showcase. I have never been inside, but have read that this is where the the city's best live jazz shows are held with a rather small venue of less than 200 seats. Located on the east side of Dearborn Station complex, just south of The Loop. The founder of... Continue Reading →
Still yet imposing.Freedom-less numbers inside.Lives turned upside down. #haiku One day, there will be time in our society where there is no need for prisons and people can get all the support they need to avoid committing crimes, or being unjustly incarcerated. There must be a better and preventative solution than this.
Many schools of thought have been there over millennia on the topic of human mind. What is it? Where does it come from? What is its purpose? Who is in control of it? Why can't I stop having thoughts at three in the morning when I want to sleep? If I can't stop them, are... Continue Reading →
Although I much prefer black and white photos, there are times where, in order to capture the essence of a scene before me, I have to do color. One of old run down stores in South Loop, bustling with neon lights was just a subject. If you can think of a color, this place has... Continue Reading →
Homebound, clock punched, ready to greet the rest of your day, maybe sneak a bit of a breathing treatment while on the move...
I predominantly shoot in black and white, which is my preference, but when fall arrives (or autumn, if you are in a non-U.S. English-speaking region), all bets are off and I dive straight into the vivid color presets on my camera.

#SeeingRedSeries Not sure what is prompting me today to publish pictures from last winter when the next one is just round the corner and weather turning ever so chilly. Should have been looking at these and posting them at the peak of summer heatwave to virtually cool down. Here you go, infrared again, no leaves,... Continue Reading →
A frequent sight while walking home from work, partners getting back together for a date after a long work day. Given the sun being low and shining from the west, I assume this was me taking the picture after work, not dating (married) and from the looks of it this was over by the South... Continue Reading →
A throwback to last winter with plenty of sharp low sun, frigid stinging air and frozen camera battery barely holding up. Infrared in winter used to be a challenge for me at the beginning, but now, on a freezing day like this, calling it a challenge would not do it justice. It's a lottery... You... Continue Reading →
There are endless ways of shooting street photos and we all tend to find our niche. One nearly fool-proof method is blind hip shooting. Hold the camera in your hand freely next to your thigh, point upwards and shoot. You may even tilt is sideways for some creative divergence or lines. One of great benefits... Continue Reading →
