  • There are times when I´ve been unable to distinguish a photo from a painting. Because I so admire a photographer who can achieve such an effect, I´m always experimenting to see if I, too, can "paint" an image with my camera. I took this picture indoors, camera hand held, using a black cloth as a backdrop and ordinary indoor window and lamp light. I tweaked only the brightness to get the soft oranges and greens and, VOILA! I got exactly what I was looking for.

  • This photo was taken from the upper balcony of the IVY Restaurant in downtown Wheaton. The photo is unique because it was shot through decorative lattice and leads your eyes to the image of Jesus. The historic building was originally built as a chapel in 1928
