Wooden toys listen.Incense perfume lingers on.Yet, no one talking.#haiku
Yearning for wisdom.Follow the yellow brick road.It's but at arm's length.#haikuA tiny park on the very edge of the train loop on Van Buren, just across the street from Chicago's Harold Washington Library.

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 →
Gosh, I really need to dive into exploring slow shutter and motion blur. It is so fun to use. There is only one essential ingredient necessary for this, which we never have enough of, cannot afford buying it, even if we wanted, and will constantly complain about having lack of....Time...
