Going back to some older shots that never saw the light of day (well, they are nighshots, but you know what I mean…). These were taken in 2008.

This is the mouth of Chicago river, looking out towards Lake Michigan. As far as I can remember, this was taken from the top floor of Swisshotel.

My grandfather was a serious amateur photographer in the ’20s and ’30s, leaving me a legacy of stereoscopic pictures and equipment. The bug passed through the genes to my father and to me. I started taking pictures seriously when I was 11 and I spent most of my teenage years in and out of the darkroom. University, work and kids put photography on pause but my first digital camera in 2006 re-kindled my interest. RB has given me a vehicle for sharing my work and for learning so much.
