Artist's Description

Will County (Illinois) Forest Preserve District, Lockport Prairie, soon after the blizzard of Feb. 2011. Nikon Coolpix S3000, enhanced with a significant amount of Photoshop.

It was the noontime of a bitterly cold day, and I decided to snap a few shots, since the snow was fresh and the temperature so low I would surely not be troubled by any sightseers. The officer of the peace, however, saw me getting in and out of my car, moving on a few car-lengths and stopping again: and he decided I was probably up to no good. He suspected me of dumping trash or stashing a cache of drugs, or perhaps even worse. So he drove up with lights all a-whirling and asked what I was up to. When I told him, he demanded to see my camera…I suddenly had visions of the worst tales from suppressed nations under dictatorial regimes…I quickly produced the camera, and then we were okay again. Just the same: I was stopped by the cops! Now I’m a real photographer!
