My Mystery Building

color photo of older building

My Mystery Building, found on a bicycle ride through the city.

I cannot say which street this building is on. I do remember that there was no address on the building and that there was a single heavy chain across the entryway. This is an old building, but in very good condition. I used Photoshop filters to make it more like an illustration than a straight photo.

The Curse Of Photography

color photo through storefront window

The Curse Of Photography

I see potential images everywhere – this one as I passed a closed store late one night. Something about the lines and light at that exact moment attracted me. This is hardly a beautiful mountain landscape. I call it the curse because I can’t not shoot it wherever I find it.

Small Town Summer

color photo of rural town Main Street

A quiet afternoon on Main Street in a small Illinois town.

I saw this scene on a muggy, hot afternoon while driving through one of the very small towns that dot the banks along the Mississippi River in Illinois. It was totally quiet with no traffic on this Main Street. The young boy was engrossed in some smartphone activity, unaware of me. He was the only person I saw. Come to think of it, he is the only person I have seen anywhere in this town over the past few years as I drive through it.

West On Randolph At State

color photo of traffic in downtown Chicago

West On Randolph At State Street in downtown Chicago at the end of a morning rush hour.

I was attracted by the vertical lines and signage. Photoshop helped me bring out some details and contrast, but most of all emphasized the brightness of this scene.

Rainy Highway

My impression of a two lane country road through corn fields on a rainy afternoon.

My impression of a two lane country road through corn fields on a rainy afternoon.

I’ll take a two lane highway over an interstate anytime. This one cut through a tasseling corn field during a rain storm. I photographed in color, but the feeling was for toned black and white which is what you see here.

And The Letter Said…

color photo of dry dock on Mississippi River

Referring to this image overlooking the Mississippi River, the letter said in part, “It’s been an honor to show your photography as part of the Fifth Annual Exposure Award…Your photography was included in the Architecture Collection and was presented at a private reception hosted at Musee du Louvre, 75058 Paris – France, July 13th, 2015.” Well, how about that?! Again I say that I couldn’t have done it without more than a little help from so many, many friends.

Chicago Board of Trade

LaSalle Street Looking South

LaSalle Street Looking South

As of today, July 6, 2015, almost all open outcry pit trading on Chicago’s commodity futures exchanges will cease. Computers replaced the trading floors. This 300 piece collage was created in 1989 when the scene was quite different. LaSalle Street and the Board of Trade were in the heart of the city’s financial district.

Ready Tables

color photo of restaurant tables

Restaurant tables ready for hungry diners.

Early in the evening, before the working crowd arrives for drinks, recapping of the days’ events, and the making of plans for tomorrow, dining tables wait patiently in the warm, friendly supper club.

Photoshop levels and luminance adjustments, a few masks, plus a generous dose of Dust and Sprinkles allowed me to achieve the results here.
