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 … Continue reading

Waiting For The Subway Train

It was a quiet moment in one of Chicago’s long, cavernous downtown subway stations. No sounds except the echoes of a busker somewhere with guitar, softly singing. A tired man sits with eyes closed waiting for the distant rumble of … Continue reading

Industry Integrating With Nature
