  • I took this photo after the rain had changed to snow and painted the most beautiful landscape on February 8th. It was taken at Timber Ridge Forest Preserve off Prince Crossing Road in West Chicago. These are White Pines. They are not native to this area but I am glad we have these few. Once in a while I take a shot that just draws me in.

  • Yes this has been photoshopped. The rain is the only thing that's artificial. The House was shot in HDR, I masked out the original sky and layered in the lightning from a storm I shot from August, 2011. I found this to be rather an intriguing photo. It was a fun project, just something I wanted to do.

  • This is a late 50s or early 60s German manufactured SABA 300 Automatic radio. These radio's had a wonderful tone and with the long antenna, you could listen to radio stations from long distances away. Compared to the iPods of today with great sound, the SABA used vacuum tubes and weighed over 30 pounds.
