The Blues Ain't Nuthin' But Trouble
My primary source of inspiration in photography is through music. This photo shot near downtown Evanston would make for a cool jazz album from the 1970's (I think).
One of my favorite photos I've ever took of the C.T.A.'s Englewood-Jackson Park branch of the Green Line. Photograph taken on the campus of I.I.T. in the historic Bronzeville neighborhood on the south side.
First Day Of June
Photograph of the North Loop taken on June 1st, 2015 from the brand new river walk on Lake Street just west of North Wacker Drive.
Title based on the once popular jazz fusion recording from 1974 by pianist and Chicago native Ramsey Lewis.
Nature's Third Rail
What I consider the most electrifying storms I've ever seen in my entire LIFE! The C.T.A. Howard rail yard, is in the foreground.
Even during the midnight hour, the Bahai' Temple is without question, one of the most photo-friendliest landmarks on Earth.
Here's To You, Kiddo!
