Barrier to the Beauty

  Barrier to the Beauty~ Hello Gentle Readers. Continuing my theme this week of sharing photographs I’ve made since I arrived in Los Angeles last year, Barrier to the Beauty, is what I would call a found image.

Photo Daily: Flight Fishing

  Any of you Gentle Readers who know me well, if asked to describe me in a word, would probably not volunteer, “Outdoorsman,” as one of your initial descriptives. In fact, that term probably wouldn’t even show up in your top 25 list. Yet here I was. Way up in the northern tip of Saskatchewan, …

Photo Daily: Tara Thoughts at Sunset

There is very little rushing about on the islands. It’s kind of perfect. I made this photograph on transparency film, something I haven’t done in …

Chicago Clouds and a Pot of Gold at Trump Tower

Chicago’s psychotic early summer weather is a guarantee for amazing clouds. And rainbows. I was walking back to the studio tonight and looked east down Randolph toward Lake Michigan.

Michelangelo Pays a Visit to the Chicago Sky

I love walking through my home city of Chicago. It’s a time to think. Observe. Be inspired. And some walks are more inspiring than others. As I walked back to my studio late yesterday afternoon, there was a report of a large storm getting ready to roll through Chicago later that evening. The sun began to …
