Perfect kitty contrast.
Love is in the air
Clouds forming hearts. Made me smile to get this photo.
Rain on the Chicago River
A gray and rainy day for Chicago.
The Beauty Above
The beauty of the Cadillac Theatre.
Music transcends generations
Keep on playing - you can lose yours keys and it still sounds great.
Ending a Good Day
Grateful for this day.
Make a Wish
Bright days are ahead ...make a wish. Love the colors
The commuting sunset cyclist
Bicycles have embraced the many bike lanes in Chicago. Commuting during evening rush hour, this cyclist crosses the Chicago River on the Wells Street Bridge.
The S's of the "L"
Looking from above the "L" we can see it's own S curve by the Merchandise Mart.
The ultimate architect
Nature combined with man's work makes the ultimate design of life.
I took interest in photography at an early age to capture the stories, expressions and beauty of life. We each display our own essence. It is my hope you can see the essence I was trying to capture in each of my photos.
A few of my photos are currently on sale at the Naperville Fine Arts Center of the Naperville Art League on 5th Avenue in Naperville. The sales of my photos benefit my new foundation www.dowhatyoulovefoundation.wordpress.com . I was inspired to return to photography by my friend, John Douglas, at Faith Lutheran Church in Aurora, IL.
My other website is www.docmaria.com I believe "Life is short, do what you love!"
ps: I got a late start in the contest this year. Many of the photos have a spiritual flair since I am "trusting God" as I recreate my life.
